Against The Odds - Racing With Gordon Lord Byron


Irish Sprinter horse, ‘Gordon Lord Byron’ captured the imagination and hearts of many. 

Bought as a foal and unsaleable as a yearling, he was put into training as a two year old. This was a financial worry as it was never part of the plan.

He endured a serious setback early in training but like every champion, it was his spirit that helped him soar. 

Gordon Lord Byron rose through the sprinting ranks, travelled the globe, gathered admirers, conquered rivals along the way and changed the lives of his owners. 

This is the story of Gordon Lord Byron, the horse who won against all the odds.
