First Listed winner

It didn’t take long for Harry’s first Listed winner to arrive. In just his second full season training the three-year-old CLASSIC REMARK, owned by Hesmonds Stud, won the Hoppings Stakes at Newcastle on 26th June 2008 at odds of 40-1 on soft ground to the great delight of her trainer and owners.

First Group horse

In 2007, Harry’s first full season as a trainer, FESTOSO gave him a taste of competing at the highest level when running in Group 1 and Group 2 races. After winning a maiden race at Newmarket the two-year-old returned to the track for her third start where she finished second in the Group 2 Cherry Hinton, beaten just a neck by Youresothrilling.
She finished the season third to subsequent 1,000 Guineas winner and European Champion two-year-old Natagora in the Group 1 Cheveley Park at Newmarket. Despite being plagued with injuries she won Black Type races as a three- and four-year-old and sold for £500,000 at Tattersalls sales.

First winner

On 2nd November 2006 Harry sent out his first runner and first winner when SITULA made all under Dane O'Neill at Wolverhampton to give Harry a 100% record.
