Shotgun Paddy is a ten-year-old bay gelding by Brian Boru out of Awesome Miracle. He is in training with Emma Lavelle.

Axom is delighted to offer 1/19th shares in Shotgun Paddy, who has won four times from 22 starts and over £100k in prize money for his Axom owners. He will be aimed at all the big staying chases in the 2017/2018 season.

Shotgun Paddy was a very good novice hurdler and after an excellent season, he showed improved form when sent over the bigger obstacles, winning on his chasing debut at Chepstow in October 2015, and again at Warwick, landing the ultra-competitive Grade 3 Classic Chase. After this effort, Shotgun Paddy ran a very game race to finish second in the four-mile Listed chase at the Cheltenham Festival, where he was beaten just a neck at the finish.

His 2014/2015 season didn't quite go to plan, although he did finish third in the Classic Chase at Warwick in January. In the 2015/16 season, Shotgun Paddy ran a great race to finish third in the Welsh National and was also second in the Eider Chase at Newcastle, proving what an honest and determined staying chaser he is. The following season, Shotgun Paddy finished third in the Classic Chase at Warwick, behind subsequent Grand National hero, One For Arthur. He also finished third in the Eider Chase at Newcastle.

Shotgun Paddy is trained by Emma Lavelle, who has achieved a huge amount of success with Axom-owned horses, including the Graded winner Bouggler and Ouzbeck, who won the Listed Summer National at Uttoxeter in 2010. Emma's stable visits are always popular and she now trains from the famous Bonita Stables near Marlborough in Wiltshire.
