Colin Tizzard Looking To Have Some Runners On The Flat Next Season

Colin Tizzard

One of national hunt racings leading trainers Colin Tizzard has hinted that next season he could be providing some of his horses over the flat swapping the Cheltenham festival for Royal Ascot in the summer.

The ex dairy farmer this season has one of his best teams over the jumps for a few seasons with his leading light being the unbeaten this season Lostintranslation who currently tops the market for the King George VI and Gold Cup.

During his career he has handled some of the best stars in the sport with Cue Card, Native River and Thistlecrack to name a few but now the Dorset trainer is also making some plans to branch out next season on the flat and have some more runners.

Tizzard has only fielded 14 runners during his training career on the flat but with his improving facilities at family's huge farm he could now seek to gain some winners during the summer aswell as the winter.

(Credit Racing Post) The trainer said: "We always used to jest and say if you leave a horse here with me for more than 12 months it will end up as a slow three-miler, but that can't be true with our new gallops.

"It's in the back of our minds to have some Flat horses and I like the idea of what Willie Mullins does, getting ex-Flat horses and running them over hurdles and then back on the Flat – it's got to be a lovely way of doing business.

"We haven't got into the Flat at all, but that's not to say we won't one day. We've got an agent in Ross Doyle who knows a bit about it so we wouldn't need to look very far for help knowing what to buy if someone wanted to do it.

"This yard has developed all the time and I'm sure one way we'd go is to look at something like that."
