Skipness ‘Skippy’ is a stunning 7 year old bay gelding trained by Tim Easterby. Skipness is by Desideratum out of the two-time winner Gwyre. Gwyre was successful in a point to point over 3 miles and also in mares novice hurdle over 2 miles and 3 furlongs. Skipness was bred by Tim Easterby and trained his dam Gwyre, so he knows this family well. Skipness holds a lot of scope and is a natural jumper, he’s ran six times to date and has shown best promise on soft/heavy ground.
We plan to run him in handicap hurdles before venturing down the chasing route, he holds the scope and size to be the perfect chaser with time. Tim Easterby has had a fabulous year clocking up a total of 136 winners to date. Tim took the reins from his father Peter in 1996. Peter is a three-time champion National hunt trainer and the only trainer to saddle over a thousand winners over flat and jumps. We are very excited to have Skipness on board. I can imagine he’ll bring us all lots of fun and success for members.
