A double today

Two out of three came home first today! Mr Millarcky was away first at Leicester. Ridden by Sebastian Woods today, Mr Millarcky cemented his win last week which was a dead heat at Lingfield. This time there was no doubt even with a 5lb penalty. He hung on bravely to the end. Things have really fallen into place for him and we are delighted for his owner/breeder Chris Mills.

We then went to Lingfield with Aramis Grey. This was her sixth career run and she has been knocking on the door the last three outings with a third and two seconds. Today she had a bad draw so plenty to overcome but Shane Kelly gave her a great ride and she put in a gutsy performance. She certainly has a winning attitude and keeps improving. Congratulations to the syndicate, The Musketeers. They have been enjoying some good results with Rae this year.

 

Mr Millarcky wins

Owned and bred by longstanding patron of the yard Chris Mills, Mr Millarcky has been in good form recently at home and was obviously ready to converted today's run into a win at Lingfield. It was an exciting finish culminating in a dead heat with Mr Millarcky and Redemptive fighting it out to the post. He was stuck on the rail behind the leader for much of the race but Shane Kelly took advantage when he saw the gap and the horse finished well.   

 

Squelch claims three on the bounce

Squelch went to Pontefract again today but this time got to run and won! It was a class 3 Handicap over 1m 4f and the good to firm ground definitely suits her. She was relaxed and lobbed along nicely before taking the lead 2 furlongs out. There was really no competition then and she finished 6 lengths ahead. Ben Curtis was on board and he feels she will easily go further so lets see what's next. We let her groom Lauren Hall know the result as she is in France with another one of the horses she looks after. She said 'What a clever girl. Super proud of her!'. Thanks to Reece who stepped in for Lauren today. BACK ON THE PODIUM AGAIN!

A hat trick for Rosa Gold

ROSA GOLD wins three on the bounce within 18 days. She has been very well at home and has come out of her races so well. This was her first time at a mile and a quarter and it looks like she could go further. Despite the undulating track, which not all horses like, and a fair few traffic problems, once she saw daylight in front of her she soon put daylight behind her! Her owner/breeder Eamonn Duggan was there to cheer her on. It looks like she is only just getting started!

Poets Dance gets her second win ..

... this time in a handicap at Yarmouth today. She has been running a bit freely in the early stages of her races and Rae said that if she could just settle a bit better she would win. He was right as usual. Owner/breeder Joyce Wallsgrove was there to enjoy the moment. Pat Cosgrave seems to work well with this filly and hopefully can take her back up into black type territory. Congratulations to Reece who looks after her at home. She doesn't like everyone but they have a good relationship.
