Poet’s Word is an Irish bred horse trained in the UK. The thoroughbred is a lesson in perseverance on account that his first two seasons were not especially earth shattering in terms of achievement. At age four though, this changed when he won the Glorious Stakes and placed second in the Champion Stakes and Irish Champion Stakes. the following year more successes came, amongst them wins in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
Poet’s Word was bred by the Woodcote Stud and bought for 300,000 guineas before being trained Michael Stoute through way of ownership by Saeed Suhail. He was sired by the successful Poet’s Voice and is related to Nashwan on his mother’s side (Whirly Bird).
One of the horses most recent outings was in the group one Juddmonte International Stakes race in August 2018, where he came a very respectable second to Roaring Lion. Unfortunately an injury suffered since that time ended not only Poet’s Words season but also his career, cutting short an increasingly successful spell in racing. With career earnings of £3 million and now a place in the stallion roster at Nunnery Stud in Norfolk, his story is far from over.
