Welcome to The Posh Pundit
Become part of something special – become a member of a racing club!
Discounted membership packages are available in the four-year-old gelding called “Thank You Ma’am“ who is in training with Grade 1 winning trainer Georgina Nicholls.
By Black Sam Bellamy, the sire responsible for Cheltenham Gold Cup second The Giant Bolster and Grade 1 Long Walk Hurdle winner Sam Spinner, the promising youngster is out of Pepite Rose, a prolific mare for Venetia Williams who was also a top-tier second to Sire De Grugy in Sandown’s Celebration Chase.
The horse ran in 2 National Hunt flat races this year in February (placed 2nd) and March (placed 3rd against mostly 5 year olds) and will be entered in a couple of more outings over hurdles this Autumn.
Thank You Ma’am has been sourced by the 13-time champion trainer’s ex-wife Georgina Nicholls, who enjoyed success at the highest level for herself when she saddled Phar Bleu to capture the Finale Juvenile at Chepstow in 2004.
Pre training the gelding was ridden by legendary 20-time champion jockey Sir Anthony McCoy, who put the chestnut through his paces at home and rated him as a “grand horse”.
Thank You Ma’am has been named in honour of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who was an enormous supporter and enthusiast of the sport.
The Racing Club is managed by Rupert Adams, a well-known figure in the horseracing and betting industries who spent a number of years handling media relations for leading bookmaker William Hill.
