Ptarmigan Ridge

PTARMIGAN RIDGE was bought privately off his breeders, Guy and Karen Gredley who have kept a share.  They had his half brother and sister with us, DON’T STARE and FLORISS.  James had seen the now gelding a few times in the paddock and really liked him and we thought he would be a good buy for Fred Archer Racing.  He is a very good-looking dark bay horse by Kyllachy.

We were unable to get him on the course as a two year old but he gave us a lot of fun once he started racing at three.  He didn’t mind how soft the ground was as he showed in his his first race.  He sat last throughout but when the penny finally dropped he showed a great turn of foot but couldn’t quite get his head in front on the line and was beaten a neck.  He then had a couple of thirds and a second before winning at Leicester on soft ground by one and a quarter lengths and seventeen back to the third.

He was never a great mover but had a good long holiday in the winter and he is now back and moving much better, so far, in 2018.  He absolutely loves swimming and he will continue to do some of that.  He is a very kind horse who only wants to please and does everything that you ask him.

Unfortunately so far in 2018 the ground has been too firm to run PTARMIGAN RIDGE on the grass and he has had to run on the all weather. He has run very well on it having just been beaten and finishing second twice by two well handicapped horses that have gone on and won again. We feel the soft turf is what he enjoys racing on the best.
