My First Horse

No Keep is my first horse I bought him when I was 15. His stable name is Niko, he is a thoroughbred ex racehorse gelding registered with Weatherbys.

He is by Castle keep and out of No debt and he is 12 years old. His sire Castle keep was by Kalamoun and out of Fotheringay and his dam No debt was by Oats and out of Deep in Debt.

Niko raced a total of 13 times in National Hunt, Rules Races and Point to Point, his trainer was Peter Morris. He won one race and was placed third in another.

Hi just came to see your beautiful horses and they are beautiful, so glossy and healthy - clearly much loved - your pictures are very good. Will pop by again.

Deep in Debt is a very appropriate name for a race horse, isn't it? Your boy is very handsome. Pop by my blog sometime and see ours, we have an ex-racer too.
