Valdez Doncaster
Riverdee’s Valdez, three-time winner over fences.

Big, robust chestnut took us to Cheltenham twice for trainer Alan King in Britain. He won twice over hurdles and won his first three chase starts, including a 24-length romp at Newbury and a Grade 2 stakes win at Doncaster. He finished fifth in the Grade I Arkle at Cheltenham in 2014. He made his long anticipated return at Newbury in February, 2018, finishing third behind Arkle winner Altior and Politologue. He won a handicap chase at Hereford before we retired him in 2020. He’s living large, teaching the youngsters, at King’s yard.
