The wonderful old servant OH THIS IS US recorded his fifteenth win for us when landing the CCR Class 2 handicap at Chelmsford on Sunday. Having run a lovely race back on the all-weather at Chelmsford last weekend to come second under Luke Catton it was great to see him go one better to win in the hands of Ryan Moore. Having tracked the leaders he made his challenge up the inside and ran on well to lead inside the final 110yards and win by half a length.
'OTIS' as he is affectionately called by Richard has provided the yard and owners Team Wallop with numerous fabulous days racing and at seven years old he shows no signs of stopping. He really is a yard pet and doesn't owe anyone anything. In his remarkable career so far he has notched up 10 wins on the turf and 4 on the all-weather in the UK as well as one win on the turf in Meydan. If they could all be as straightforward as this son of Acclamation then the game would be a lot easier!
He holds an entry for the Challenge Cup, a 7f Heritage Handicap at Ascot in early October and all being well that could be his next target.
