TUDOR CITY, the Racehorse

Owners Debbie and John Breslin, jockey Fran Berry, and Tudor City.
Surfing the web recently, we came to the startling discovery that Tudor City is not only the name of a Manhattan residential colony, but also the name of an Irish bay gelding. Meet Tudor City, the racehorse.

The internet yields only the most basic information about our namesake. Tudor City was born in Ireland in 2012, the son of Yeats, his sire, and She's Our Mare, his dam. Trained by A.J. Martin, he's been run 37 times with 4 wins and 11 places.
Tudor City may be best known for the dramatic shot above, regarded as one of the top sports photographs of 2017. It shows our hero charging past a fallen competitor to go on to win the race at the Fairyhouse Easter Festival in Ratoath, Ireland.
