Familiar Spirit (GB)

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

Familiar Spirit is an unraced filly who was in training with Warren Greatrex last season, without making it to the track due to the Covid-19 pandemic. She is by Ascot Gold Cup winner Fame And Glory who was also 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 made a hugely exciting start at stud. This filly is a half-sister to the Listed-placed bumper horse Alverstone and is one to look forward to in bumpers this year. She has always impressed Warren at home and so we can’t wait to see her on the track!

Trainer

Warren Greatrex is based at the historic Uplands Stables in Lambourn. Formerly a salaried trainer to Malcolm Denmark, Warren’s handling of Grade 1 winners Cole Harden and La Bague Au Roi during his short career to date have marked him out as one of the rising stars in the National Hunt training ranks.
