Riccarton, 7th August 2021 – 3100m Open Hurdle – jockey Emily Farr

This 7YO Redwood gelding won his third hurdle race at Riccarton in August impressively by 5 1/2L. He also won a hurdle race at Awapuni in June (by 10 1/4L)! And prior to that a hurdle race at Ellerslie (by 4L). He's had plenty of placings, some not-so-great runs, and lost his rider once. But with 5 wins from 36 starts (3 of them over hurdles) he's got ability, even if he can be an "in and out" sort. John Wheeler is his trainer, and also an owner, and we're sure he'll encourage Chief Sequoyah to keep running and jumping with success in mind!
