2017 filly by Midnight Legend (GB) ex Blue Buttons (Ire) (King’s Theatre (Ire))
Last Of A Legend is an athletic looking five-year-old mare by the wonderful stallion Midnight Legend, an excellent sire of fillies, and producer of tough and likeable horses. Last Of A Legend is out of the King’s Theatre mare Blue Buttons, who won a Listed race for Harry Fry, who now has his first opportunity to train the progeny of a mare he has also handled! Last Of A Legend ran exceptionally well first time out in an Aintree bumper and has had a quiet winter to mature. She took to hurdling well and her novice tag has been protected for the season to come, so we hope she can get her head in front soon.
Harry Fry is an already successful young trainer who launched his career in 2012 after five years as assistant to Paul Nicholls. He enjoyed his first Grade 1 success in 2015 with Bitofapuzzle, followed swifly after by Unowhatimeanharry in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016. Harry moved to an extremely smart, purpose built yard last season, and looks to have every chance of making it to the top of the training ranks.
