Jewel in the crown

A horse looked after by a Galashiels stable lad has won the Cartier Horse of the Year award.

We recently ran a story about how Michael Curran helped care for the three-year-old colt which took the racing world by storm this year.

Kingman is now enjoying retirement at Banstead Manor Stud.

Curran said: “I’m delighted – he was a special horse to work with.”
