2012 bay mare by Midnight Legend (GB) ex Ryders Hill (GB) (Zaffaran (USA))
Drewmain Legend is by the amazing late Midnight Legend, who was a top class flat horse and hurdler himself, and who is responsible for numerous top class chasers including Gold Cup winner Sizing John. Out of a Zaffaran mare, Drewmain Legend was always bred to be a better chaser than hurdler and indeed shed her Novice tag over the larger obstacles when showing a great attitude to win at Chepstow in April. A scopey filly, ‘DL’ is capable of further progress this term especially when the mud is flying in the depths of winter!
Sam and Ali Stronge are based at Castle Piece Stables in Lambourn and are one of the newest, most exciting young training couples around. Having only held their licence since May 2013, they already have amassed an impressive haul of winners on the board under both codes. They were also responsible for providing HTT with their first National Hunt winner when Drewmain Legend won at Chepstow on April!
