Sire Thewayyouare
Dam Hold On Tight
Owner The Phoenix Partnership (SHARES AVAILABLE)

Gripper was purchased from the Horses In Training Sales at Newmarket and comes from the same source as our five-time hurdle winner Thorpe, this 4 year old gelding recommended to us by his previous trainer Ralph Beckett who also bred him. By Thewayyouare, sire of recent hat-trick winning juvenile hurdler Chica Buena, Gripper was successful over 1m6f at Chelmsford in August, edging out High Command who has gone on to be placed twice over hurdles. A horse with size and scope, Gripper has the potential to be a decent good ground stayer, first over hurdles but then over fences, ideal for tracks such as Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth. Shares are available.
