Racing Horses to look out for in 2017


5. Silvergrove:

Silvergrove is an 8-year-old horse owned by Nicholas Piper and Claire E Piper. It is of the Bay Gelding sex and was foaled on the 19th of March, 2008. It is of the Classic Gale type breed and till date he has 19 runs in his career out of which he has finished 1st three times, 2nd four times and 3rd twice. With a win percentage of 15.79, Silvergrove has shown some potential after securing all his wins in the last two years. Under trainer Ben Pauling, Silvergrove has been impressive and one to look forward in 2017.

4. Le Breuil:

Le Breuil is a 4-year-old horse of the Chestnut Gelding sex. Foaled in 18th February 2012, Le Breuil is owned by Miss Emma Collins. Since his debut on the 7th of May, 2016, Le Breuil has participated in 3 runs, winning two of them. It was quite phenomenal and once again it was trainer Ben Pauling who helped Le Breuil earn this success. The French horse in one of his races beat Richard Johnson who earlier this year won the Champion Jockey title. Breuil offers a great prospect and it is interesting to see what he goes onto achieve in 2017.

3. Songbird:

Foaled in April 30, 2013, Songbird is a horse from the United States of America. She was sired by a world class horse in Medaglia d’Oro. Songbird won the 2015 American Champion Two Year Old Filly title as she went undefeated in her four starts.  She also stayed undefeated in 2016 against three-year-old fillies. She has a phenomenal record winning 11 of his 12 races. She narrowly lost in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff, but nothing can take away from the impressive start she has had which makes her in the spotlight for the next year.

2. Barters Hill:

The Irish horse was foaled on the 29th of March, 2010. Barters too is of the Bay Gelding sex. He participated in his first race on the 2nd of November, 2014 and since then he has created a lot of buzz with his performances. Trained by Ben Pauling, Barters Hill has won 7 out of his 9 runs in his career with a win percentage of 77.78. It is a wonderful achievement but sadly he faces some time on the sidelines following the slip of a tendon off a hock. He is expected to take some time, but he should be back before the main events in August and people are eagerly anticipating Barters Hill to perform next year.


Sired by Kayf Tara, Thistlecrack is a British Thoroughbred horse. He started his racing career at the age of five in 2013, and since then he has stunned many with his performances. Under trainer Colin Tizzard, the small white star bred has a fabulous record of winning 13 out of his 18 runs. He has been quite a revelation this season which makes it more exciting to watch him next year.
