Deep King is a model of consistency, he was placed in 12 consecutive races in 2005. He has won 4 chases in his career: once in Ireland, twice in 2004 when trained by Seamus Mullins and in May 2007 when trained by Robert Webb-Bowen.
The 2006/2007 campaign has gone well and we were delighted when Deep King and Jonathan Jarrett (aka JJ) WON the Barteak Developments Hunters Steeple Chase at Stratford on Friday May 25th by 21/2 lengths beating the favourite at a generous price of 16-1!
Deep King has now accumulated £34,223 in prize money.
