Duke

Duke

Stable name: Duke

Never far from Briar in the field, Duke is a Frisian, but unlike any seen before! He has tremendous natural paces and ability and is a great all-rounder. He really knows his job, and will be very disappointed if he does not get at least one run up the tilt rail whilst schooling!
