“Pether’s Moon was a very high class and durable racehorse. His high cruising speed, consistency and soundness entitled him to respect whatever the opposition. Only four horses beat Flintshire in 2015: Treve, Golden Horn and Dolniya. The other was Pether’s Moon and it is rare that National Hunt breeders get the opportunity to use a horse of this quality and magnificent physique as soon as he retires to stud.”

“We bought Pether’s Moon as a yearling and we were delighted to buy a store by him last year which will go into training with Joe Tizzard.”

“I’m a huge fan of Pether’s Moon, I think he stamps them, they have a lot of quality with great minds. Certainly the two I’ve had have been very straightforward and I think we’ve only just scratched the surface with Pether’s Moon - there’s a lot more to come.”

Alan King at Yorton Sale 2021 after purchasing Lot 47 (Pether’s Moon Yearling) for £42,000

“Ross (Doyle) and I were delighted to buy him at the 2021 Doncaster Store Sale. He is a big chasing type with a great attitude and mind - exactly the sort of horse we love to train. We look forward to running him in the autumn.”
