Description:

Trespasser, pictured here with his hurdling partner George Duller in the saddle, won seven races from two to six years, including the Queen's Prize, a staying contest at Kempton Park. But he is famed for his exploits over hurdles. Over these he was a 'machine', winning three Imperial Cups. This race at Sandown was, at the time, the most important race of the season, as Cheltenham's Champion Hurdle was not staged until 1927. Trespasser, an entire horse, went to stud and got plenty of ordinary winners, but nothing in his own class. However, one of his daughters, Tickets, bred Victor Norman, a headstrong grey who won the Champion Hurdle in 1936.
