Unlike Carlton House, Bold Sniper did not race at the highest level of racing during his career in the Northern Hemisphere, but he has form around the likes of John O’Shea-trained Contributer, Mackinnon Stakes placegetter Farraaj and new stablemate Café Society.

Waterhouse told Sky Racing HQ that Bold Sniper is a lovely looking horse and she said that she was excited and privileged to be given the opportunity to train another horse for The Queen.

“He is a lovely type of horse and he is already in the yard,” Waterhouse said.

“Her Majesty’s Racing Manager John Warren arrived at the Coast on Saturday and we already spoke several months ago about Her Majesty giving me a second horse.

“She had so much fun and won such wonderful prizemoney with Carlton House and she was terribly interested in the way that we do things down under.

“She has very kindly graced me with another horse.

“Bold Sniper is a lovely big rangy horse and we will have a lot of fun with him.

“I haven’t seen him in the flesh yet, so I am looking forward to seeing him when I go back on Sunday.”

Bold Sniper made his racing debut under the care of Sir Michael Stoute at Newbury in April of 2013 and he recorded his maiden race by five lengths at Thirsk a month later.

The New Approach gelding finished a credible third behind Elidor in the King George V Stakes during the 2013 Royal Ascot Meeting and took out the Neptune Investment Management Handicap at the same venue before he finished his season with a flat effort in the RAC Handicap during the Glorious Goodwood Meeting.

Bold Sniper returned to racing with a third place finish in the Suffolk Stakes (1810m) at Newmarket  and he produced consistent performances in the Listed Wolferton Handicap (2011m) at Royal Ascot and the John Smith’s Cup (2092m) at York before he failed to fire when 17th behind subsequent Melbourne Cup runner  Mutual Regard.

Carlton House had an eventful stint in Australia and did not win a race, but finished a close second in the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and was third behind It’s A Dundeel and Sacred Falls in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) during the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

    I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I
    thought this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already ;) Cheers!

  2. portable code

    Wonderful blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any forums that cover the
    same topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of community where
    I can get suggestions from other experienced people that share
    the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Kudos!

    I think what you posted made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    however what if you added a headline that grabbed
    a person’s attention? I mean Waterhouse To Train Bold Sniper For The Queen – HorseRacing.com.au is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines
    to grab viewers to click. You might add a related video
    or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
