Joyce Piers was kept busy presenting the numerous Spey Bridge Awards. Grant Littleford accepted the People’s Horse Award for Super Trouper. This is decided by popular vote and goes to a horse who consistently gives his best even if unable to win all the big races – in other words the punters’ friend.
Super Trouper had a great season as a seven-year-old and Grant said he will be back for more next season. The West Man (USA) gelding is owned by Paul Rugg, Grant Littleford and Spencer Murray and is trained by Gokhan Terzi.
Super Trouper was a close second to Equina in the recent 1900m Republic Cup and an even closer second in Sunday’s 1400m Breeders Sprint. Watch the video of the Breeders Sprint below – this horse is all heart.
