These former racehorses are unsuitable for re-homing due to injury, temperament or age but will have a safe home at Greatwood to live out the rest of their days in comfort. Each of these horses is assessed to see if they are suitable to be used in the Horse Power programme to help children with special educational needs, giving them a new focus.
11th Apr 1992 - Far North – Sans Dot
Ran 57 times, with a very successful career. In a career spanning eleven years, Deano’s Beeno had an excellent hurdles record of 11 wins, one of which was in Ascot’s Grade 1 Cantor Sport Long Walk Hurdle, beating the outstanding Baracouda on level weights and ending his run of 10 consecutive victories. Six of his hurdle wins were in Grade 2 events. A fast and fluent jumper, he was one of racing’s top staying hurdlers. In addition to multiple hurdle wins, he also won on the flat and over fences. He retired from racing in June 2004 and was gifted to Greatwood, possibly because of his renowned quirkiness.
