Raising Sand is an Ascot and Nick Bradley Racing legend. Nick bought Raising Sand out of the Roger Varian yard for just 16,000 Guineas. To date he has won just over £300,00 in prize money and in the process has won four times at Ascot, with only Frankel and Blue Point winning more than him at Ascot.
Raising Sand is a big scopey horse who has got better as he has aged. He loves cut in the ground, particularly when it has rained on the day of the race. He has a big round action and he excels when other horses flounder in soft and heavy conditions.
He will start his season off at Royal Ascot in the Royal Hunt Cup and will be trained towards the big valuable handicaps at Ascot in the second half of the season. 2021 is likely to be his final season but it is hoped we can see him in the winners enclosure at Ascot once again.
