Winner of the Gr.3 Swinton Hurdle

A foal purchase by Tony Nerses, Gwafa was a smart handicapper for Marco Botti who won his maiden at Newmarket by no less than 19 lengths. However, it was when switched to hurdling that the son of Tamayuz hit full stride.

Gwafa was our first runner over jumps and demonstrated a real zest for the winter game, winning three of five starts during his first season with Paul Webber that culminated in an authoritative victory in the Grade 3 Swinton Hurdle at Haydock Park.
