Peur De Rien - Race horse
6 year old gelding (Capgarde – Tango Princress (Fabulous Dancer)) - Trained by Oliver Sherwood - Horse Racing Trainer
PDR is a really good looking horse and is an exciting Chaser in the making - he is a big lad at 17h! He has always worked like a very nice horse at home for Oliver. We think he had quite a bit of 'physical development' to do last season-which he has now done! He travels in to his races very well but doesn't finish his races off with the same class. His is still young and we are still learning about his favoured race conditions but hopefully he is an exciting prospect for the future. See below for his race reviews:

This was probably the best display Peur De Rien has produced in our colours. He was given a patient ride and looked a possible contender turning for home, but ultimately this proved an insufficient trip and he had to settle for fourth. In many ways this run confirmed what we already knew – that he needs a stiffer test of stamina – but equally it showed that he might find a race over hurdles before tackling fences, when his fluent jumping could help him take his form to a new level.
Stuart Redding's review of Peur De Rien's run at Leicester 12.12.18
This wasn’t a great result for Peur De Rien but it’s still early days. He showed up well in front but his jumping was inconsistent – he looked good when meeting them right but ploughed through a couple – and he couldn’t match the turn of foot shown by some others in the closing stages. The patchy ground was an excuse but in honesty, he ran like a staying chaser and it might be worth trying a stiffer test of stamina next time.
Stuart Redding's review of Peur De Rien's season and Club debut at Hereford 05.11.18
This had looked a competitive race beforehand and as it turned out, it was a ultimately a bit too competitive for our new boy. He travelled well enough in midfield despite some novicey jumps but didn’t have find much in the closing stages and ended up in eighth. Perhaps he wasn’t quite as fit as we had thought, and he won’t always end up in a race with this many unexposed rivals, so let’s chalk this one down to experience and hope for a better outcome next time.
