2017 G1 Ascot Gold Cup hero Big Orange (GB) (Duke of Marmalade {Ire}), will be on a working holiday to do meet and greets with museum visitors at the Rothschild Yard at Palace House in Newmarket until June, Palace House announced on Monday. The yard is the flagship yard for the charity Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) and is part of the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art. Retired in February of this year, the Bill and Tim Gredley colourbearer won nine of his 27 starts for trainer Michael Bell.

“We are so pleased that Big Orange will continue his retirement at Palace House, having been born and bred at Stetchworth and trained locally by Michael Bell, he really is a Newmarket boy through and through,” said Tim Gredley of the bay, who will return to Stetchworth Park Stud later this summer. “It’s great that he’s going to spend a few months in the heart of the town where visitors to the museum can meet him and importantly see the great work of the RoR.”

“It really is such an honour to have Big Orange join the Retraining of Racehorses yard here at Palace House,” said Palace House Director Chris Garibaldi. ” We are incredibly grateful to Bill and Tim Gredley for their long-standing support of Palace House and for their generosity in lending us their much loved racehorse to highlight the wonderful work the RoR does.”
