Sire Thewayyouare
Dam Hold On Tight

Gripper was purchased from the Horses In Training Sales at Newmarket and comes from the same source as our five-time hurdle winner Thorpe, this 4 year old gelding recommended to us by his previous trainer Ralph Beckett who also bred him. By Thewayyouare, sire of recent hat-trick winning juvenile hurdler Chica Buena, Gripper was successful over 1m6f at Chelmsford in August, edging out High Command who has gone on to be placed twice over hurdles. A horse with size and scope, Gripper has the potential to be a decent good ground stayer, first over hurdles but then over fences, ideal for tracks such as Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth. Shares are available.
