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 and, on the evidence of his Ballycahane win and the work he has done at Harry's yard before being turned away for the summer, he is shaping up to be a very exciting horse.

 

The intended plan for the gelding is to start him 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.
