Tinto wins at Bath! Ridden by Jason Watson, Tinto won the Sky Sports Racing Virgin 535 Handicap in a photo finish. He made headway over two furlongs out, challenged just inside the final furlong and ran on to lead in the final strides to win by a shoulder. Congratulations to the Derek James, Steven Jenkins and Michael Quigley and well done to Thierry Decherf who looks after Tinto at home.
We are delighted that Sash won the Fegime ‘Preferred Suppliers’ Handicap this evening at Windsor for owner breeder Prince Khalid Abdullah. Ridden by Pat Dobbs he tracked the leaders and was pushed to lead over one furlong out and ran on well to win comfortably by two lengths. Well done to Tim Taylor who looks after Sash at home.
We are delighted that Count Otto got his head in front and won the ‘Sir Michael Pickard Handicap’ for the Count Otto Parntership at Epsom on Thursday evening. Carrying top weight under Pat Dobbs, he made progress up the outside two furlongs out and ran on to lead in the last 100 yards to win the six furlong contest by half a furlong.
