The Green Ogre

The Green Ogre

I purchased The Green Ogre for just £3500 at the Ascot sales in June 2018. The Green Ogre was going through the ring for little money, I thought he was worth more so purchased him on spec.

This sturdy big horse stands close to 17h.

Shrek as we’ve nicknamed him is a gentle giant, he’s talented on his day, rated 127 at his peak. We’re hoping a nice break and a change of scenery could see The Green Ogre push towards that kind of rating again.

The Green Ogre handles heavy ground, whilst is a previous winner over hurdles and a fence. There isn’t much not to like for what we paid. If Shrek can win a race for his owners and give us some fun days out through the winter months, he’ll have been a lovely fun recruit.

The Green Ogre will be trained by Alastair Ralph
