Winning War Chant

It was only a matter of time before War Chant returned to the winners enclosure as the three year old War Command gelding who is owned and bred by Vicky Markowiak had run well in his previous three starts this season. 

Vicky was in attendance at Nottingham on Sunday accompanied by her good friend Richard Climpson who also holds a share in War Chant. Ray Dawson was booked to ride in this Class 6 handicap over a mile but due to illness had to miss out on a second winner this week for us and James Doyle was able to step in. Drawn 1 of the 9 runners War Chant went off the 11-8 favourite. He broke smartly from the stalls and took the lead shortly after and at the three furlong marker was asked to quicken. He soon put daylight between himself and his rivals and won impressively going away by four and a quarter lengths.

Congratulations to Vicky and Richard and thank you to James Doyle for the ride. Let's hope the handicapper is not too harsh on War Chant for this victory !
