Benny’s Bridge was Biddestone Racing’s first National Hunt horse and has become a real star of our racing stable. He was purchased as a 4-year-old store at the Goffs UK Spring Store Sale and immediately placed in the hands of Fergal O’Brien, a rising star of the training ranks.
Later that year, he easily got off the mark on debut in a bumper of Market Rasen at which point Paddy Brennan got off the horse and said “look after this boy, he could be anything”. He went on to finish third in the valuable Goffs UK Sales Bumper at Newbury when his chances were compromised by the deep ground.
He has notched up a total of 4 wins in his career to date from just 11 starts, including two terrific victories in competitive handicap hurdles at Cheltenham, the spiritual home of jump racing, much to the delight of his enthusiastic band of owners. With a record of 2 facile wins from 2 visits to Cheltenham, he has proved a liking for the unique test that the course offers and is sure to return there during the remainder of his career.
Following an impressive 8 length win at Cheltenham’s Showcase meeting in October 2019, he went off the favourite in the Grade 3 Greatwood Hurdle. Sadly, he suffered an injury in the race which kept him off the track for a few months by which time, it was decided that he would not return until the new 2020/21 season allowing him to be nursed slowly back to full health.
He is now back and in full training with Fergal O’Brien at his impressive new Ravenswell Farm facility and is being readied for the season ahead. He is moving and working well, Fergal is very pleased with him and ‘Benny’ is expected to return to the racecourse in October. His latest Official Handicap mark was 137 and we firmly believe that he has the talent to outperform this rating. Even so, after his extended period on the sidelines, his mark will probably be lowered before his comeback.
Benny’s Bridge is now a 7yo, he is a son of the hugely successful stallion, Beneficial, and comes from a superb jumping family. He is the grandson of the Grade 2 chase winner Be My Belle and his dam is a half-sister to the Listed hurdle winner Snake Eyes, with plenty of other top-class jumpers in his pedigree.
There is plenty to look forward to with Benny’s Bridge. He remains lightly raced for his age and looks likely to return better than ever.
