John Leeper Has Arrived!!!

Fri 28 February 2020

A great amount of anticipation has been growing around the yard as one of the most regally bred colts in England arrived in the yard this morning. John Leeper is named after Ed Dunlop’s late father and champion trainer John Leeper Dunlop.

This two year old colt is the son of Frankel, the 10 time Group One winning champion, and now prolific Group One producer. His dam is one of our very own champions Snow Fairy, who was arguably one of the greatest race mares this century. A globetrotting superstar, she won Six Group Ones in total including 2 classics, Hong Kong Cup and became the only European horse to win back to back Group Ones in Japan.

John Leeper himself has all the attributes of both these prolific performers and has been showing all of the right signs in his pre training. We cannot wait to see him progress and we are all hoping he will live up to his pedigree.

We would like to thank Mrs Patino one of our greatest supporters and dear friend for giving us the opportunity to train this horse.
