Life After Racing – The Informant

Share this Article:

The Informant aka “George” or “Chicken George” (see photo!) joined Wilsford in 2012. George ran 25 times under rules, winning 1 bumper (on debut under Andrew Thornton in 2012) and 4 chases with numerous placings. He last raced in December 2015. George picked up a slight suspensory strain and after some time off it was decided to retire him. George was always the firm favourite of one of our grooms, Lou, and she decided to take him on to live with her mare, Jazz. George and Lou have been out and about having lessons, cross country schooling and having a go at show jumping but Lou has now lost him to her 14 year old daughter, Nancy, who enjoys hacking him out over Salisbury Plain and has recently started jumping him too! Well done to Lou and Nancy for giving George the lifestyle he deserves!
