Shadows Lengthen came to the yard as a yearling having being bought at Tattersalls for a mere 5,500 gns. And what a bargain for a horse that went on to become a 13 times winner!

Running in the red and white colours of Thomas Frost, his two year old career started unspectacularly, finishing second last on his debut, and signing off his juvenile year at Redcar where he finished 20th of 20.

Gelded in the Autumn of 2008, his first win came at Southwell in November, the first leg of an amazing six-timer as he won five times at Southwell and once at Wolverhampton in the space of just over two months. He became a certainly throughout the Autumn on the all weather, twice sent off odds on in what should have been competitive handicaps. However, as always happens the handicapper was to put an end to the winning streak as Shadows was put up 32 pounds in the ratings.

The remainder of 2010 proved more difficult, and the beginning of 2011 saw Shadows began his hurdling career, winning at Catterick and Doncaster.

Rated 120, in December 2012 he was switched to jumping fences, and won at the second time of asking at Sedgefield. Further victories came at Bangor, Doncaster and Haydock. Shadows saved the best 'til last, and his final win proved to be his biggest when he came home in front at Wetherby, winning the Listed bet365 Handicap Chase in October 2014.

Shadows Lengthen was retired in October 2017, a thirteen times winner and one of the toughest most genuine horses we have ever trained.
