Sabrehill (USA) - Anchor Inn

91 starts - 4 Flat Turf, 3 All-weather, 29 Hurdle and 55 Chase.

Mister McGoldrick had 15 wins, 4 seconds and 15 third place with total earnings of £372,366

Mac had an amazing career spanning over 10 years, he retired at the grand age of 14. Of his 15 wins, 8 were on his favorite course at Wetherby where he is still fondly remembered and where he parades twice a year.

Mac is probably best remembered for his fantastic win at the Cheltenham Festival in 2008 where he won the Racing Post Plate at  66/1. His true grit and determination has given him a loyal following over the years and made him one of Yorkshire's true racing heroes.

"As a small breeder of thoroughbreds and an owner of racehorses I am proud to be a Patron of New Beginnings. As a horsewoman myself, I can fully endorse the care and empathy shown to these magnificent horses. The dedication, passion and commitment given by Pam and Kevin to the welfare of all the horses in their care is second to none. The Racing Industry is lucky to have their support."
