UPDATE – ELUSIVE POPPY made her racecourse debut at Carlisle in a mares NHF race on the 15/12/19. Both trainer, Rebecca Menzies and Jockey Connor O’Farrell were really pleased with the run. Connor’s actual words on dismounting were “I am delighted with that, she ran to the line and will come on physically and mentally for that, look after her and you will have a very good horse next season”
ELUSIVE POPPY has been recently secured for a further 3 years by BUMPERS TO JUMPERS to realise her true potential and they are delighted to now offer her for Syndication.

Pete Ingram from Bumpers to Jumpers says “ Poppy is a huge favourite of ours, she has the size and scope to be a force in staying hurdles and chases this season, we always knew stamina would be her forte, jumping will be no problem, so she will start off in a bumper this season and then will go straight 20f plus Novice Hurdles, tracks like Carlisle with a stiff uphill finish will be ideal for her, We think there is are good staying Hurdles/Chases in her and that is how she will be campaigned going forward”
