Available Horses: David O'Meara


We’re delighted to confirm the classy Remarkable has joined David O’Meara for 2019 following his recent purchase from Horses In Training Sales.

Remarkable is a typically late maturing type by the outstanding Pivotal, a sire who’s progeny improve with age and seemingly go on forever. We don’t have to look too far for a case in point - Remarkable’s full brother Watchable won two good races in our colours as an eight-year-old this year.

His career is one of steady progression into high class form and he has relatively few miles on the clock for a horse of his age.

In 2016 Remarkable won his first three starts, before finishing fifth to the top-class Ribchester in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot. Better was to come late in the year as he finished runner-up over a mile in the valuable Balmoral Handicap on Champions Day.

A solid sixth in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot last year, he then went on to take out a £50,000-to-the-winner handicap at Ascot in September.

Remarkable suffered a training injury soon after and has been given plenty of time to recover from that by his previous owners Cheveley Park Stud. He passed a thorough veterinary examination at the sales while Chris Richardson, Cheveley Park’s  manager and a man David has a very good relationship with, highly recommended Remarkable to David. He’s been cantering away for the past two months prior to the sales and has gone straight into full training at David’s Willow Farm stables.

David is keeping Remarkable in training throughout the winter before stepping things up in the New Year with a view to targeting him at the Lincoln at Doncaster.

In the past four years David has saddled Horses In Training recruits to finish 2nd, 4th, 1st and 2nd in the Lincoln, with two of that quartet going on to win Group races later in the year. Equally tempting will be the £250,000 Balmoral Handicap on Champions Day at Ascot in October - a race Remarkable has already been runner-up in. David has saddled Horses In Training Sales recruits to finish 3rd, 1st and 2nd in the race in the past three years.

Remarkable has proved very popular since his purchase. We currently have just two twelfth shares remaining in him.
