Familiar Spirit (GB)

2016 bay filly by Fame And Glory (GB) ex Sounds Familiar (Ire) (Orchestra (GB))

Familiar Spirit is by Ascot Gold Cup winner Fame And Glory who was 2nd in Sea The Stars’ Epsom Derby. Sadly now deceased, Fame And Glory appears to be a great loss to the National Hunt stallions ranks having done extremely well with his runners to date. Familiar Spirit has been patiently handled by Warren Greatrex, and this patience should now pay off in handicaps over a longer trip.

Trainer

Warren Greatrex has recently moved to the historic Rhonehurst stables in Upper Lambourn, where many top-class horses have been housed including, in recent years, the much loved dual Grand National winner Many Clouds. Warren knows this yard well, having been assistant to previous occupant Oliver Sherwood for 9 years. Rhonehurst boasts exceptional facilities including an equine swimming pool, and is a stone’s throw from all of the Jockey Club’s outstanding Lambourn gallops. Warren has proved himself a versatile young trainer and has won multiple Grade 1’s with his two stable stars to date, Cole Harden and La Bague Au Roi.
