The covers are off and he’s ready to do battle! Template set for debut

| 27.01.2015

It has shortened their winter. But three months of daydreaming will be put to the test this afternoon at Taunton as Template, who became the Coral Champions Club first ever purchase when they bought him at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale at the end of October , is all set to make his hurdling debut. The racing club, which is completely free to join, was founded three years to give its members the opportunity of experiencing the thrill of racehorse ownership.

Five lucky members and their guests will travel to the Somerset venue to represent the club where they will enjoy a pre-race chat with trainer Harry Fry and jockey Noel Fehily in the Parade Ring followed by a meal put on by the club and receive 10% of any prize money should Template finish in the frame.

Template was recommended to club trainer Harry Fry by top jump jockey Noel Fehily who will be on-board on Tuesday. Trained initially by Richard Hannon, Template showed useful form as a juvenile finishing just over two lengths behind UAE Derby winner and Breeders’ Cup Classic second Toast Of New York in a juvenile maiden. Sold and sent to Amanda Perrett, the three-year-old gelding gained three further places last year before being plucked out for the Coral Champions Club by Fry and his team from over 1,000 horses at the Tattersalls Sale.

Fry has been impressed with his recruit’s progress since his transition to a new code and club members will be hoping that it is bubbly and not dreams that is being popped at Taunton today.
