Badger Foot is a most genuine type who has become a yard favourite.

 

Badger started off in Irish point to points for Enda Bolger, winning on his debut with J T McNamara, then going into training with Jonjo O'Neil for whom he won a novice handicap chase ridden by A P McCoy.

 

Badger then came to Scotland and point to pointed for my father: he had a fruitful season point to pointing in 2011, winning five, each time for a different jockey. Starting with a win for Dan Ockenden he then gave Craig Nicol, Steven Fox, Rachael Macdonald and Jamie Lyttle their first ever wins. The confidence gained in those races was evident when he followed up in a handicap chase under Peter at Kelso in June.

 

Badger Foot had a good summer break and a wind operation to help his breathing.

 

In 2013/14 he won again under Graham and Derek, bringing his total wins to ten, under ten different jockeys. He seems in good form and is best on good to soft or soft ground over two mile four to three miles. 

 

After time off Badger returned to the point to point field in March 2016 when he gave Connor Wood his first win on just his second ride. Eleven wins, eleven jockeys.. and counting..

 

In total Badger Foot has won seven point to points and four chases.
