Double Delight for Count Otto and Astromachia – Friday 24th August

A good double for the team today from Newmarket and Goodwood!

The first of those was Count Otto who won the last race at Newmarket, the 'Invest In Calphormin Handicap' over six furlongs under Andrea Atzeni. He ran a pleasing race to finish second at Newmarket last Saturday 18th August and has won with authority today at the July course. Andrea tracked the leaders before quickening inside the final furlong to win comfortably. We are delighted for his owners the Count Otto Partnership.

The second winner came from our local track, Goodwood. Astromachia, owned by John Connolly and Odile Griffiths won the 'Alice Sherrard Handicap' over two miles under Joe Fanning. Astromachia went well into second over four furlongs out before being ridden into the lead over a furlong out, he stayed on inside the final furlong and won well.

Congratulations to all connections and thank you to my hard working team at home.
