He is a big horse who is generally very gentle although can be a total scaredy cat at times! He is known as the resident vacuum as he loves cleaning up all food in his sight! He is really a lovable teddy bear! He is a very dominant horse with his paddock mates and usually takes charge of the paddock he is in, especially when food is around. Sil has his own statue at Sha Tin Racecourse and was on the front cover of Time magazine. Sil was one of the first members of the Legends Under Saddle program and has had some of our students and young riders take him for a trail in the Park. Amongst his many achievements he was voted World Champion Sprinter in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
