About Henry Box Brown: Henry Box Brown is a handsome 7-year-old, sired by Getaway and in training with Evan Williams.
Henry Box Brown is a lovely type with impressive paces and a scopey jump. He won an Irish National Hunt Flat Race at Wexford easily and with plenty left in the tank.
Mr D Allen, his winning jockey, reported that he had ‘a powerful engine’.
You wouldn’t describe ‘Henry’ as a typical chestnut. Although strong-willed and fiery, he has shown a great attitude to his work, proving himself to be very honest and willing.
He was purchased by Evan Williams with Old Gold Racing owners in mind. Henry Box Brown has now got a win and four placings in the Old Gold Racing silks. He kicked off the 2023 New Year in great style when seeing off a rival by a neck at Uttoxeter, providing his owners with an exciting battle to the finishing post.

Henry made his debut over fences at the backend of last season, which gave the team a nice platform to build upon going forward. Evan wants to mix hurdles and chasing this season to keep his mind active but also because he feels he is capable of wins over both.
Henry Box Brown has just come back in from a proper holiday, during which he was able to freshen up and mature, having had a very busy time of it last year. The plan is to have him ready for a late Spring campaign.
As long as we get the track, the trip, and the tactics nailed down, there should be plenty more fun to be had with Henry in the near future.
