An attractive first foal out of Listed winner She Be Classy by Classic winner Lemon Drop Kid. Lemon Drop Kid was a top class 2 year old, and went on to win the Belmont Stakes (part of the US Triple Crown) winning 8 races and amassing £1.8m in prize money.

A good boned, strong, athletic looking individual, Surrey Hope made his debut with a promising 6th place finish in a good Newbury maiden in October 2016. As a progressive type who was sure to improve as a three year old, it came as no surprise when he then won a Kempton maiden really nicely on his first run of 2017.

He followed up with a second win in a hot 1 mile handicap at Sandown in mid June and a respectable third on very soft ground at Newmarket on 29 June, before bouncing back on his preferred good ground at Salisbury on 16 August to land a third win from just four runs this season.

In 2018 Surrey Hope came a neck second on his seasonal reappearance in a class 2 at Lingfield, and followed that up a few weeks later with a close third at the same course.

Following a tricky two months he was gelded and then returned at Newbury on Lockinge Day to run a fine third in a class 2 handicap, giving away 8 and 10 pounds to the two in front. He ran well in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, what a fantastic achievement for our first ever horse who only made his debut 18 months ago, but has since lost his way a bit. He has now moved to Hughie Morrison who has an excellent record with older horses where we are hoping the change of scenery will rejuvenate Hope and get him performing again like his old self.
After a couple of races to get back into action, a drop in ratings, Surrey Hope returned to form with a brilliant win at Epsom, under a cracking ride from Jason Watson. There’s still plenty left in the tank so we expect a few more winners to come from such a talented horse.
