Sarena Special (bay gelding, born February 16, 1997) is a retired British Thoroughbred racehorse bred by Bealy Court Stud Farm. The Gelding was sired by Lucky Guest, out of the dam Lariston Gale.


Racing career

Sarena Special was ridden by Neil Pollard to second place at Lingfield Park Racecourse, just two weeks after his debut race, finishing 1¾ lengths behind the winner.

Sarena Special, ridden by Francis Norton, achieved second place again in his fourth race at Warwick Racecourse in a dramatic finish, losing by just ¼ length.

Eight months later, another second place result in his sixth race, ridden by Seb Sanders at Kempton Park Racecourse. This was followed by a third place finish shortly after; for his next fourteen races, he finished very close to the back of the pack and pulled up in two of those races.

July 14, 2002, at Chepstow, ridden by Vince Slattery, was to be the first of two wins for Sarena Special. He won by ¾-length in a very close finish with five other horses.

Sarena Special's next four races were again of a low performance, but the final three races of his career were successful. Ridden by Richard Johnson at Leicester Racecourse, 11 January 2005, resulted in a third place. Chris Honour rode Sarena Special to second place in his penultimate race.

Sarena Special's final race was at Towcester, May 17, 2005. Ridden again by Richard Johnson, he won by half a length in a dramatic finish despite being the oldest horse in that race.

Even though Sarena Special's final three races appeared to show good form, he was retired after his last win.
