The team here at Down Farm are delighted to report that Saint Are (Arnie) is back home safe and sound after being brought down in the Grand National on Saturday. Arnie returned on Sunday morning from Aintree and was in his usual paddock that evening having a buck and a kick!

Career long owners David Fox and partner Lystra Adams’ priorities have always been his wellbeing. Thus have taken the decision to let him enjoy an active retirement after a summer at grass here at Down Farm. It is yet to be decided in which sphere, however he is sure to excel in whatever is chosen.

He had an unbelievable record round Aintree winning the Grade 1 Sefton Novices Hurdle and the John Smiths Handicap Listed Chase at the Grand National Festival and of course finished 2nd, 3rd and 9th in the Grand National.

Happy Retirement Arnie!!
