KING OF UNICORNS. 26 April 2017. Night Of Thunder-Aviacion. Owner-Joe Buzzeo.

King Of Unicorns was bred by Godolphin to be a top class flat performer, but having been a late developer, he was sold at the Doncaster sales in May 2021. He is by Night Of Thunder the 2000 Guineas winner of 2014, out of an unraced mare who has already produced top class flat and National Hunt performers.

King Of Unicorns was sent off the 9/5 favourite on his bumper debut at Perth in September 2021, and after running green, finished a five and three quarters lengths fourth of the seven runners. He was given a near six weeks break before reappearing at Carlisle, he was keen in the early stages, and paid the price when weakening from over one out to finish fifth. On his third start at Newcastle in November things fell into place when he kept on strongly to win with a good deal in hand, with Billy Garritty riding him for the first time.. All those three starts were on good ground, and when he made his hurdles debut in December, that was also on good ground. where he finished a respectable third. It was an above average looking novice hurdle, with Billy Garritty retaining the ride, the winning horse Since Day One looks a very useful recruit, and the horse who finished just in front of King Of Unicorns in second, was a winner on it's previous start. TO BE CONTINUED.
