Newsells bred and consigned Western Hymn lands his sixth Stakes race

12/05/2017 Western Hymn

The Newsells Park Stud bred and consigned, Western Hymn, battled well in a thrilling finish to win the Group 3 Ormonde Stakes at Chester from last year's Epsom Derby runner up US Army Ranger. 

Western Hymn has been a great campaigner for his connections, trainer John Gosden and owners RJH Geffen and Rachel Hood, winning over £600,000 in prize money for them. 

The six-year-old gelding has previously won the Group 2 Prix Eugene Adam, the Group 3 Brigadier Gerard Stakes, Gordon Richards Stakes and Classic Trial at Sandown.  He has also finished third in the Group 1 Coral Eclipse and Prince of Wales's Stakes. 

By High Chaparral, Western Hymn is out of Blue Rhapsody (Cape Cross), a half-sister to the triple Gr.3 winner Fantasia (Sadler's Wells), and a grand-daughter of Champion 2yo filly Blue Duster.
