ARCTIC FOX CHAMPAGNE MOMENT

It was a good day for amateur lady rider Carol Bartley as she won her weight in Champagne after guiding Arctic Fox to success. They were always travelling nicely and perhaps hit the front a bit too soon. Arcitic Fox hung badly and ended up on the stands side rail but was never going to be caught and stayed on to win by half-a-length for owner Sir Robert Ogden.

ARAKHAN WINS AFTER 802 DAY BREAK

Arakhan has had 802 days off the track but he returned with a winning debut over hurdles at Aintree. He was held up towards the rear of the field by jockey Brian Hughes. He grew in confidence but he had a lot of ground to make up on the turn for home. He switched left and when Brian asked him for an effort he took off. He was level going over the last and pulled clear to win by eight-lengths. It was great for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club to have a winner over the jumps.

ARDENLEE STARS AT THIRSK

Ardenlee Star made an impressive debut at Thirsk under jockey Paddy Mathers. He was held up towards the rear of the field and had a lot of ground to make up approaching the final two furlongs. He stayed on really strongly and ran down the leaders to get up and win by half-a-length.

WINS FOR OTI MA BOATI & DEFENCE TREATY

The horses are running really well and we had another two winners on Monday. Oti Ma Boati made the perfect start to her racing career winning on debut at Pontefract. She was slowly away and did run green under Tony Hamilton. She started to get the hang of things and made headway approaching the final furlong. She battled well and got up on the line to win by a neck.

Defence Treaty picked up his first win at Leicester. The lightly raced three-year-old tracked the leaders under Paul Mulrennan. He was challenged over the final two furlongs and lost a place but rallied over the final furlong and stayed on really strongly. He won by one-and-three-quarter lengths for owner Clipper Logistics.

SUMMER SANDS WINS BRIAN YEARDLEY

Summer Sands made a really pleasing debut in the Brian Yeardley Trophy at Beverley. She was always prominent under jockey Barry McHugh and she had the lead entering the final furlong. She stayed on really well when challenged and got up to win by half-a-length. It was a good result for the Cool Silk Partnership who had Moon Of Love finish third on debut earlier on the card after being nearly bought down. Both look like exciting prospects.

TOUGH ALENEVA WINS ON HAYDOCK DEBUT

Aleneva showed what a tough filly she is, battling for her debut win at Haydock. She jumped well under jockey P J McDonald and was always travelling nicely in front. She was challenged over the final furlong and she had to dig deep to get up and win by a short head. Owner John Dance tweeted his excitement about the win and it was always a special day for Lois. She named the horse after John put out a competition to name her a couple of weeks ago. Lois won and was at Haydock for her winning moment.

FLAMING PRINCESS ON FIRE AT NOTTINGHAM

Flaming Princess made a really pleasing debut to win at Nottingham. She broke from the stalls really well under Barry McHugh and they grabbed the rail. She showed a really professional attitude and battled all the way to the line when challenged by the favourite. She stayed on strongly to win by a neck for The Cool Silk Partnership.

 

SECOND WIN OF THE WEEK FOR RACING CLUB

It’s been a good week for the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club with two winners. Crownthorpe followed up Fairy Stories success with a victory at Newcastle. He was held up by apprentice Sean Davis and he picked up really strongly over the final two furlongs. When he hit the front he pulled clear to win by two-lengths.

TORO STRIKES AT THIRSK

Toro Strike built on his debut at Newbury with an eye-catching performance at Thirsk. He was always prominent under Tony Hamilton and he showed a good attitude when challenged. He won by a neck and there looks a lot more to come.Β 

 

FAIRY MAKES A STORY AT NOTTINGHAM

Fairy Stories was a really impressive winner at Nottingham. She was third on her seasonal reappearance in May and she came on massive for the run. She tracked the leaders under Paul Hanagan and made headway half-way. She had the lead approaching the final furlong and pulled clear under hands and heels to win by six-lengths. There were plenty from the Richard Fahey Ebor Racing Club to welcome her back into the winners enclosure.
