Horses of a Lifetime
‘What he was physically, what he did on the racetrack, you’re lucky to have one like that- he really was a horse of a lifetime...We’ve been lucky with Tagula.

He produces physicals that we and the Hannons like, they seem to win plenty of races and you don’t have to wait too long for them’.
