The year has got off to a great start with eight winners from just forty six runners - a 17% strike rate!
At Kempton on Saturday we saw the improving ARAFI record her second career success coming back off a 169 day break. Given a patient and confident ride by Sean Levey she made her challenge from the back of the pack inside the final two furlongs. She hit the front towards the line and won going away. We are looking forward to a great turf season with her. Congratulations to owner Mr Ali Abdulla Saeed and connections.
Last night saw HOST break his maiden in striking fashion at Wolverhampton under Thore Hammer Hansen for Highclere Thoroughbred Racing. Having a host of good runs under his belt....pun intended...including five seconds this really was well deserved! Held up out the back of the field Thore pulled out turning in and readily bounded clear to win by a cosy two lengths not fully extended. He is a consistent type and there will be plenty more fun to be had for connections.
