He too could be a contender for Equus glory.
Judpot had another impressive winner on the weekend, when his son, Stirling Road, made an easy winning debut at Borrowdale on Sunday.
Now the sire of eight winners, Judpot’s first crop of foals have, thus far, included four stakes horses, as well as the impressive, unbeaten filly Sweetwater.
