Former high class hurdler Karaback is to join the stable of Eddie Harty for the upcoming National Hunt season in a bid to revitalise the horse’s career.
The JP Mc Manus owned gelding had been in the care of Alan King up until the end of last season, where he was last seen been pulled up behind Big Bucks in the BGC Partners Liverpool Hurdle at Aintree.
A delighted Harty said of the news “He came to me at the end of the summer,” confirmed Harty. “They felt by moving him to Ireland it would give the horse a few more options.
“But one thing’s for sure, Eddie Harty is unlikely to improve a horse from Alan King, it’s just that there’s a few nice races over here that he could go for.
“I think one of the main thinking points is that Big Buck’s probably won’t be coming over here.
“So, once he’s ready, we’ll have a cut and see where he is.
“I’ve got nothing in mind, he’s only been in training six weeks and hasn’t done anything serious yet.”
