Veteran Joe Packet wins at Goodwood

 In Latest News

Ten year old gelding Joe Packet won in an exciting finish at Goodwood ridden by our apprentice Pierre Louis Jamin.

Just when we all thought he might be past his prime this dear horse came good for the seventh time in his long career with us. His last win came in 2015 but before then he was a smart sprinter and placed in Listed company. Since those days he has served us gallantly as a lead horse, in particularly as Mrs Danvers‘ lead last season and we all know what a stellar season she had, largely thanks to Joe. He seems to love life here and never has to do more than he wants and spends most afternoons in his paddock. With Mrs Danvers currently on the sidelines the pressure has been off for him of late so a trip to Goodwood clearly agreed with him and he looked marvellous on the day.
