- Trainer: Harry Whittington
- Age: 4y/o
- Race Type: Jump
- Description: Chestnut Gelding
Based in Lambourn – ‘The Valley of the Racehorse’ - and with access to some of the finest facilities in the country, Harry Whittington is fast becoming a name to sit up and take note of. Now in his eighth season in training, he has already saddled Grade 1 & Cheltenham Festival winners and, alongside his young and ambitious team, is set to continue to improve on these successes.
A very exciting prospect, Docpickedme is a four-year-old Chestnut gelding by Getaway and out of Hard Luck, an Old Vic mare.
He won his Irish point to point at Ballycahane in March 2020 showing plenty of stamina and a turn of foot to beat talented sons of Shirocco and Coastal Path who have both gone on to make £100K and £150K respectively. Affectionately known as ‘Derek’, named after Derek O’Connor who rode him in the race having schooled and worked him all winter, he was bought at the Tattersalls Cheltenham Festival Sale by Harry.
He summered well at Harry's Hill Barn Stables, came back into work at the start of July and is now doing plenty of canter work to build him up for his first run under National Hunt rules.
Harry is very pleased with how he has relaxed into a training routine and has indicated that his intention will be for the gelding to start off somewhere like the Class 2 National Hunt Flat Race at our October Showcase Meeting at Cheltenham, before taking a view to go hurdling for the rest of the season.
