Adams Park was purchased from the Newmarket sales in May 2018 for 16,000gns. This good-looking horse by the top class Mastercraftsman, cost 130,000gns as a yearling. He was bred to be a Derby hope.
Adams Park pedigree is all stamina. He’s related to the top-class Kingston Hill who won the St Leger, Racing Post Trophy and finished 4th in the Arc de Triomphe. An official flat rating of 77 was achieved before we bought Adams Park. His flat efforts and pedigree suggest this horse will benefit for a step up in trip.
We’ll campaign Adams Park as a juvenile hurdler to start with. He looks the ideal the ideal type for such a race. There won’t be many higher rated ex flat horses going down this route during the Summer months. Long term, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Adams Park running over 3 miles.
Adams Park will be trained by Dr Richard Newland "jumps" & Mick Appleby "flat".
