BUSSTOPINHOUNSLOW is a colt by New Predator (AUS), out of the Silvano (GER) mare Penny Serenade. Purchased by the Hollywood Syndicate at the BSA August Two Year Old Sale 2023, he was bred by Suikerbosview Stud.

Name Meaning: The name refers to a song sung by the Brentford fans, “We’re just a bus stop in Hounslow.” The main reason behind the chant is to wind up their local rivals in west London. But it has a greater meaning.
Local rivals Queens Park Rangers fans mocked Brentford a few years back after a win and chanted ‘you’re just a bus stop in Hounslow!’ Hounslow is a part of west London which you mostly pass through to get to Heathrow Airport in the western suburbs. Brentford’s fans then flipped that chant on its head and embraced their status as a small industrial town which 1) has a bus stop and 2) is in the Borough of Hounslow. The song is factually correct but it is about so much more than that. For decades Brentford have been one of London’s smallest professional teams but this season they have overtaken all of their rivals and this self-deprecating chant sums up the spirit of the rise.
