As many will know, we had originally placed Mustazeed with well established Newmarket stalwart, Chris Wall, the multiple Group One winning trainer, resident at Induna Stables. From our acquisition of Mustazeed until the end of 2022, when Chris sadly announced his retirement from training, Chris and his team did a truly fantastic job with Mustazeed, especially following his accident, and we are eternally grateful.
However, with the sad news of Chris’ retirement, we considered options for Mustazeed in anticipation of what we expect will be a big season for the 5yo and are very pleased to have now placed him with Harry Eustace at Park Lodge Stables. Harry took over the reins at Park Lodge Stables in 2021, following on from his father, James Eustace’s 30 years as a trainer, whom we had the utmost respect for and with whom we were looking to place a horse, prior to his retirement.
Harry kicked off his first season making an almost instant impact when saddling ten winners in his first four months and has continued to progress in his second season, where he dramatically increased the strike rate of the yard. Harry’s passion and youthful exuberance for the sport shines brightly through, and having previously worked for Chris Wall at Induna Stables, there is great familiarity with the methodology that Chris would have employed.
Harry is pleased to have Mustazeed join the string and both Harry and ourselves are confident he will be able to assist the relatively lightly raced 5yo fulfil his untapped potential for an exciting season in 2023.
