Pattern and Group Races: 2012

This was a landmark year for Harry Dunlop Racing; with exciting two-year-old ROZ providing Harry with his best ever finish in a Group 1 race. Second to Certify in the Fillies Mile at Newmarket, she gave the whole team hope that she would turn into a Fillies Classics horse for 2013.
VIKING STORM continued to fulfil his promise, winning four out of six races and placing in the other two. He stepped up in class and finished third in a Listed race, ending the season on a mark of 106.
This year also saw Harry have his first ever French winner. Having been bred in France, two-year-old SIR PATRICK MOORE (Fr) was eligible for the valuable French Owner Premiums and he ran three times in France winning at Compiegne under Christophe Soumillon, finishing second at Longchamp in a Listed race and sixth at Deauville in the valuable Sales race. He went on to win his debut maiden at Newbury and finished the season sixth in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy.
