Fair Along (GER)

Jumps placings: U11113428/03111202/3437/211393/71570/1934/U26345/3410/

Fair Along started off his career with Hobbs as a juvenile hurdler, filling the runner-up spot behind stable companion Detroit City in the 2006 Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham.

He excelled at all disciplines, competing at the Cheltenham Festival a remarkable eight years in succession.

All in all, Fair Along won 16 of his 67 races, was placed on a further 17 occasions and acquired over £430,000 in win and place prize-money for owner Alan Peterson and trainer Philip Hobbs, but sadly died of colic at the age of 11.

Fair Along won at Grade 2 level five times but his most memorable performances were in defeat, runs which included a second in the 2006 Triumph Hurdle, filling the same place in the 2007 Arkle and third in the 2008 Champion Chase. On the Flat, he was runner-up in the 2007 Chester Cup and third in the Cesarewitch the same year.

"He was an amazing horse to be so adaptable over all sorts of distances, hurdles and fences, and Flat as well, being placed in a Triumph Hurdle, a Cesarewitch, an Arkle, a Champion Chase and a Chester Cup. He probably just missed out on winning a really big race on several occasions."

Copper Bleu (Ire)

Jumps placings: 61/15/31242/13211P/85/

In 2010, Petersons' Copper Bleu, a Bay Gelding provided them with their second Cheltenham Festival winner when holding off Othermix in the Jewson Novices' Handicap Chase.



Massini's Maguire

Jumps placings:
4/1232/121U5314/12235/3/1/P1/030/

Massini's Maguire, a Bay Gelding, was the Peterson's first Cheltenham Festival winner in the Ballymore Properties Novices' Hurdle 2007 and registered another big win at Ascot in 2010 for the United House Gold Cup.

 

 

Village Vic (Ire)

Jumps placings: F11205/256604/1/3412P/111190-2

Another horse owned by the Petersons is Village Vic. This Bay Gelding trained by P J Hobbs has been dubbed a scintillating jumper having had many highly impressive victories at Cheltenham Race Course over the years. The trainer's wife, Sarah Hobbs, said, "They both (horse and jockey) have so much confidence. He's a fabulous horse."
