Hijack

This is a proper horse by a very exciting sire in Fame and Glory, who was a top-class middle-distance stayer, winning multiple Group 1 races and finishing second in the Epsom Derby to Sea The Stars. His oldest progeny are five-year-olds and he has already produced a Grade 1 hurdler. 

Hijack is a half-brother to Village Vic, a hugely successful jumper trained by Philip Hobbs who had seven career wins including two at Graded level and earning nearly £200,000 in prize money. 

Nicky bought Hijack at the Goffs National Hunt sale in June last year and he has been catching the eye on the Seven Barrows gallops. 

Having made tremendous physical progress, he made his racecourse debut in a bumper at Fakenham in late October.  He had shown plenty of speed in his work at home, but really failed to handle the sharp track and did all his best work when staying on strongly in the straight.  A more conventional track will now suit him much better and plenty of improvement is anticipated.
