Michael Owen has enjoyed plenty of success with the progeny of his broodmare Treble Heights, most motably with last year’s St Leger runner-up Brown Panther, but they are also very effective over hurdles and Third Half became the third sibling to win over hurdles with us (following in the hoofprints of Holoko Heights and Paddy Partridge) when successful on his hurdling debut at Worcester yesterday!

Richard Johnson was really pleased with the performance and hopefully he can follow up next time under a penalty after the upcoming National Hunt break.
