  • “A magnificent looking specimen with an engine to match. He was right up there with the best horses that we have had here. We look forward to having some of Harbour Watch's progeny back here at Herridge and if they prove half as good as he did we will have no complaints.”

    Richard Hannon, trainer

  • “He was very precocious with the perfect attitude and a powerful change of pace.”

    Ryan Moore, jockey

  • “He was one of the very rare horses I rode whose nose I could see whilst he galloped, such was his determination and will to win. He had the most brilliant attitude as well as loads of ability, we sadly never got to see how good he could have been. I was desperate to buy yearlings by him and have two here now broken and ridden away. Like their sire they have both shown great temperament and have a brilliant nature. I really like them.”

    Richard Hughes, trainer and former Champion Jockey
