CROWD RACING LEGEND, BORN TO FINISH, WON HIS 10TH RACE ON 24TH JANUARY 2021. 10….not many horses win 10 races, a lot of horses don’t win any races! This is a phenomenal achievement and we believe he has more wins in him. He has won from a handicap mark higher than the one he is currently running off. Winning races for 3 different trainers and 5 different jockeys, Born To Finish has won at 5 tracks across the UK, and over 6 furlongs and 7 furlongs.
Born to Finish has won 9 of his races on the all-weather tracks and just the one on the turf, but he has been unlucky a number of times on both surfaces with 20 placed efforts!
The 110 day period from 1st November to 18th February, has seen 9 of his wins take place with the other 265 days seeing just the 1 win.
Jeremy Gask trained him for his first win, with Martin Lane on board, and his highest rated run was actually one when he finished 2nd. At Newcastle with Joe Fanning on board, for Jamie Osborne.
He has won races in 5 of his 7 seasons as a racehorse, only missing out in Covid affected 2020 when he was restricted to 2 runs and his first season where 4 trips to the track where unsuccessful. 57 runs since then, and 10 wins supplemented with the 20 places show what a great career Born To Finish has had.
It hasn’t all been plain sailing, he kicked the window out of his horse box and cut his leg pretty badly, he has needed a couple of wind ops to help his breathing and was unlucky to suffer a stress fracture of one of legs, he also hates very soft ground or slowly ran races but typically, he is a lovely character of a horse with a thrilling style of running and a real attitude that is determined to win races. Thriving from passing other horses in the closing stages, he does tend to break slowly, and he does take a stride or two to pick up but once he does, he is beautifully named – He is truly BORN TO FINISH.
Born To Finish is owned by a group of Crowd Racing members, who have supported him through thick and thin, and is now also supported by the members of The Gold and Green Crowd.
