NELSON'S BOUNTY rewards his owners The Newmarket Pirates who comprise Jan and Colin Harris, Tony Burlton and Paul and Sue for their patience when landing a gamble at Lingfield on 10th. He is a huge horse, who we were never able to get on the track as a two year old, due to a never-ending series of niggling problems, due to his immaturity. In the end it was decided to give up the struggle and turn him out in October last year. He went to Sue's sister Tik Saunders in Northamptonshire, who also did all the pre-training on him around the rolling hills. He is still a big baby of a horse.

Incidentally, the Newmarket Pirates name comes from the attire worn by certain people at a very good party held by Tony Burlton for his 70th birthday in 2008 which had a Caribbean theme!
