Potters Corner horse share
Buy a Potters Corner horse share. Durable and possessing limitless stamina. He's been on some of racings grandest stages dating back to 2015. Potters even managed to hit the headlines by winning the world’s most famous race. He didn't even leave his home in the beautiful Welsh countryside to win. The Virtual Grand National!
Potters Corner had initially been trained in Ireland by Thomas Cooper. Having placed second in a point-to-point race, he sold at Cheltenham. Selling for £30,000.
Potters Corner horse profile
He joined the stable of trainer Paul Morgan and lost no time in proving his quality. Winning on his British debut in a Chepstow bumper.
He then finished third in another National Hunt Flat Race at the Aintree Grand National meeting. Barters Hill, the subsequent Grade 1 hero, won this incredibly high class event. Future five-time top level scorer, Bellshill, came in second that day. No less remarkable was that dual Champion Hurdler, Buveur d’Air, came home a length behind Potters Corner in fourth.
Potters Corner moved to a new base near Bridgend in 2018 with Christian Williams.
Triumphant in the Midlands Grand National and the Welsh Grand National. Potters Corner become the first locally-trained winner of that historic contest in 46 years. As a result, he has become regarded as one of the top staying chasers in the UK. It is yet another testament to the quality of this horse and the excellent job Christian and his team have done.
For all his successes, it may seem strange that possibly his best known win came without ever leaving his yard. Perhaps he will be best remembered for 'winning' the 2020 Virtual Grand National. As a replacement for the real Aintree spectacular (cancelled due to Covid-19) which raised £2.6 million for NHS charities.
Christian Williams says;
“Potters Corner has been huge for my career. The ground didn’t turn out to be in his favour in the Grand National this year but still ran with plenty of credit. There’s still some big races in him and I’m looking forward to seeing him back in action. Another crack at the Welsh Grand National will be the target as well as the cross country races at Cheltenham”.
