Bobs Worth comes for an extended holiday!!!

Yesterday was a very exciting day at Hillwood Stud! One of the toughest National Hunt racehorses came to stay! Bobs Worth has had his annual holiday at Hillwood Stud for the last eight years. He is the winner of 11 out of 22 races which includes a Lexus Chase, Cheltenham Gold Cup & Hennessy Gold Cup. He is owned by The Not Afraid Partnership who are the nicest group of people ever to have owned racehorses. Trained brilliantly by Nicky Henderson Bobs has won over £700,000 in prize money.
Harry wasn't born when Bobs first came on his holiday to Hillwood but since Harry could recognise a horse he has loved this boy! They have a special connection with each other which I hope will grow with them over the coming years.
Welcome Bobs!!

Lots of treats!!
