I remember Gronkowski making his debut at Newbury back in 2017. Jeremy Noseda’s son of Lonhro out of the dam called Four Sugars didn’t set the world alight finishing 7th at odds of 5/1.
His second start saw an improved effort when finished runner-up at Newmarket. The third start saw this strapping 2yo win by four-and-a-half lengths. Owners Phoenix Thoroughbreds III Ltd had recovered just a few thousand pounds of his original 50,000 guinea yearling price tag.
Who would have believed by the time of writing this post in 2019 Gronkowski would have won prize money over £2M.
