Equality Racing are part owners of Viva Colonia along with Bolinbroke Racing and Mersey Racing.
Since purchasing Viva Colonia we have been lucky enough to win a Listed race at Market Rasen and the Cartmel Cup with Denis O’Reagan in the saddle on both occasions. In addition he ran a remarkable race to finish 5th in the Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham at the Open meeting. This time ridden by Timmy Murphy.
Now rated 138 over hurdles Viva unluckily injured himself and missed the festival in 2012 but in the longer term we will see him switch to fences and we are more than hopeful that he could improve again in that sphere.
