Democritus is a 2019 grey gelding by Universal, aka Gerald.
He is a horse with undoubted ability, as demonstrated by two excellent runs over hurdles in the spring. However, he has had a few heart issues and so we are very careful with what we do we with him.
Jo's 'kid gloves' seem to work, however, as recently Gerald romped to victory at 18-1 in a hurdle race at Worcester. He followed this up with a third at Uttoxeter, despite running rather lazily.
We hope it's the first of many.
Gerald is owned by Tony Worth and Vic Bedley, who are long-term supporters of the yard.
