Lavender’s Blue wins the Group 3 Atalanta Stakes and Cogital wins at Lingfield – Saturday 31 August

We are thrilled that Lavender’s Blue won the Group 3 Betway Atalanta Stakes at Sandown on Saturday for owner breeder Benny Andersson. Ridden by Jim Crowley she tracked the leading pair before squeezing through one furlong out to lead inside the final furlong and quickened away to win impressively. All being well she will head for the Sun Chariot Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday 5th October. Well done to Charlene Smith who rides and looks after Lavender’s Blue at home.

Cogital provided us with a double on the day when winning the Lin Purvey Birthday Celebration Handicap at Lingfield under Pat Dobbs. He made headway to lead over two furlongs out and was driven out in the final furlong to just hold on by a neck from Continnum and win for owners John Connolly and Odile Griffith.

Tinto also ran a career best on Saturday and just missed out by a head to finish second in the Betway Sprint Handicap at Sandown under Jason Watson.

We are delighted for all connections and the team at home.
