Tinsmith came recommended by our club ambassador and Racing UK pundit, Mark Howard. We spoke with Roger Charlton on the back of this who kindly passed on his thoughts. Tinsmith is a handsome looking grey by Mastercraftsman, he stands at a huge 17.2h. Rarely you see a horse this big at such a young age.
Timsmith was Roger Charlton’s horse to follow for the 2018 flat season, this was highlighted in the “Ahead On The Flat publication”. His debut effort at Newbury, sixth of sixteen reads well.
Due to his size, Tinsmith wasn’t suited to flat racing. He was also weak and not physically ready. This horse needs to grow into his huge frame, he’s going to be a long-term project and screams chaser in the making.
Tinsmith is gorgeous stamp of a horse and should be very exciting in a few years’ time. He looks a great buy at 12,000gns from the Newmarket sales.
Tinsmith will be trained by Jamie Snowden.
