A homebred gelding in every respect as both his sire Gentleman's Deal and dam Strong Hand were winners for the yard. He handles the sand well and his first two wins came at Wolverhampton. In 2013 he won a Catterick handicap over seven furlongs and was again successful at Leicester in July. He won in 2014 at Kempton Park and Musselburgh and in 2015 he won at Beverley.
Strong Man was pulled up at Newcastle in October 2016, and he has now gone home and he lives with his owner.
