This gelding was our standout youngster for 2019. Not only did he win twice, but he was placed in all his runs, earning over GBP 10,000 in prizemoney and finishing his juvenile season on a rating of 82.
We are delighted to be offering Harry Love for syndication once again for his three-year-old season. Very few horses of this calibre are offered in small shares, and certainly none in a horse which could be racing in high profile races for very significant prizemoney.
Ollie told us "He is a proper racehorse. Probably the best two-year-old I've trained for five seasons. He won his two races really well and earned a very respectable mark of 82 in the process."
"He started growing in autumn, and that\'s the only reason he stopped racing in September. He's going to make up into a really cracking three-year-old and we'll be heading for some big races with him hopefully."
Harry Love is quite a 'busy' sort and just like his sister (who we also owned and syndicated), shareholders should be aware that we expect this son of Lawman to have a busy season in 2020 where he may contest some very high-value races. If everything goes to plan, Ollie has a £100k race at York as his mid-season target.
This gelding's mother had a full sister called Rosinka who was top class and it does seem the family is more than capable of passing speed through the line. 'Harry' has already proved himself to have plenty of ability - his only slightly disappointing run coming over five furlongs when displaying he probably needed six furlongs to be at his best.
Rosinka was a Group 3 race winner (also 2nd in a Group 1) and also won as a 2YO. She has proved to be a highly successful broodmare, with three winners from five runners, one of which is Move Up (rated 115 and group 2 winner)
Ollie Pears noted: "He will be given plenty of time over the winter to grow into his frame and we're looking forward to starting him back in April. The plan is to get an early win into him and then look to contest some of the quality 3YO only handicaps.
Ollie added: "He has impressed me ever since his first gallop at home, and I'll be pinning some pretty major hopes on him for 2020."
Ollie went on to state "His sister trained on as a three-year-old and I expect the same from him. He's already gone up and lengthened out well, and with a proper rest he should come out fighting in spring. "
We are already reporting on the gelding's progress for shareholders on an ad-hoc basis, reporting on the major breakthroughs with his training - and we will provide regular updates on his progress on the gallops and with his education in detail from January onward. During the heart of the season we publish update reports every 7-10 days, and more regularly when he actively starts racing in spring.
Shares in this gelding are limited, as many of his 2YO shareholders renewed their ownership. Only 30 shares have been made publically available in Harry Love for his 3YO season.
Form & Race Plans
The race plans for this gelding are to contest sprint handicaps in the first two months of the season, hopefully win a couple and then step into the bigger, more lucrative Class 2 and 1 contests.
Ollie has his eye on a 100k race at York in June. If he were able to qualify (would probably need to go up the handicap a few pounds - currently rated 82), then this is the big target race for the first half of the season. From then on he will be placed according to how he fares in handicap races.
Your online Racehorse Manager will provide full details of all developments in terms of the gelding's progress and race planning as the season progresses.
Harry Love 2020 Guarantee
We expect to get 2-5 runs and sometimes more from all our 3YO horses per share period, however, you should expect periods of no racing as a result of recuperation from injury or training setbacks. This share period starts proper at the start of the turf season on April 1st 2020 and runs through the turf season until November 1st 2020, however, we will be reporting on the gelding before the share period starts (from January 2020) should we have anything of importance to share with shareholders.
During the season the horse may be rested or have time away from the track to recover and it is quite normal for a flat horse to have periods of 3-6 weeks rest between races. young horses are particularly susceptible to sore shins, bone chips and growing pains, and can need a greater time to recover between races.
We provide guarantees with all our racehorses. If this gelding suffers a season-ending injury and has not already raced twice during the share period, we will replace him with an alternative horse for the remainder of the season. Replacement horses may not be of the same quality, are provided with no further guarantees and no alternative choice can be provided. Prizemoney cannot be paid on any replacements, but all other benefits such as yard visits and race day badges are available.
You should be aware that there is a chance that your racehorse may not race at all even though they do not get injured. Around 15% of 3YO's and above will not reach the racecourse during any given season for a variety of reasons.
As a shareholder you must understand that we cannot guarantee your horses performance, a specific volume of runs (beyond our minimum guarantee after an injury) or that runs will be evenly spaced throughout the share period. This is the chance you take when owning any racehorse and participating in this ownership experience. If you will be disappointed with only 2-3 runs from your racehorse during the season, then please DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS OR ANY OTHER RACEHORSE, as you could be disappointed. We believe in being crystal clear with our shareholders - any participation in racehorse ownership is a risk, and we are unable to make any refunds because of share periods which finish early due to injury or retirement - as training and livery fees for the horse still remain whether they are racing or not and part of your lease payment covers the five-month build-up to the season.
This risk is the chance all shareholders take, as we do ourselves, when participating in the ownership of a racehorse.
