                 Doc Cebu.
Racehorse Doc Cebu
Like many steeplechase champions, Doc Cebu has had a bumpy gallop to the summit.
“He is quite well bred. As a two-year- old, he sold for $250,000,” says Charlie Fenwick, who owns Doc along with his partners in Bruton Street. “But he didn’t perform particularly well on the flats and traded hands in the claiming ranks.”
Fenwick bought Doc in the fall of 2015 for $10,000. “We ran him in Middleburg,” he recalls. “He’s a decent jumper and won a few races.”
Fenwick thought Doc might fare better on the timbers, racecourses that feature fixed, solid obstacles that must be jumped cleanly. In 2017, he made his timber debut and went on to win four races.
In 2018, Doc ran five times, with four wins and one third, making him Timber Horse of the Year. And Jack Fisher,
Doc’s celebrated trainer, earned yet another title, that of trainer of the Timber Horse of the Year. “He is a natural horseman and loves the sport, as we do,” Fenwick says of Fisher.
