Zhui Feng will be running in the Royal Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot on Wednesday. He won the race in 2017 for owners John Connolly and Odile Griffith and will be ridden by Pat Dobbs for this year’s renewal.
We are looking forward to Epsom tomorrow, Lavender’s Blue will be running in the Oaks for owner and breeder Mr Andersson. Her dam, Beatrice Aurore also owned by Mr Andersson finished sixth in the race in 2011.
Lavender’s Blue is an exciting filly who won on debut at Newmarket in April and was beaten a neck by Queen Power at Newbury in a hot Listed race earlier this month.
Annie Angel will go through the ring at Doncaster on Thursday, she is Lot 846 at the Goffs UK Spring HIT/P2P sale. She won a Mares’ Handicap Chase convincingly at Fontwell by six lengths earlier this month (8th May). She jumps well and is ready to run through the summer months and would make an ideal point-to-point horse.
Forty-five years to the day since ABBA won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Waterloo, Lavender’s Blue was narrowly beaten in a Listed race at Newbury finishing second in the Haras De Bouqetot Fillies’ Trial Stakes for owner breeder Benny Andersson on Saturday.
We are thrilled that Annie Angel won the ‘Watch The #bettingpeople Videos starsportsbet.co.uk Mares’ Handicap Chase’ at Fontwell on Wednesday evening. Ridden by Leighton Aspell, she jumped impeccably and stayed on nicely to the line to win by six lengths. We are delighted for her owner George Materna and well done to Martina Polzerova who looks after her at home!
Lavender’s Blue won her racecourse debut this afternoon at Newmarket under Robert Havlin. She won the ‘bet365 European Breeders’ Fund Fillies’ Maiden Stakes’ by two and a half lengths from Maamore. She tracked leaders before being ridden to lead just inside the final furlong and ran on strongly to win well…
We are delighted that Sash won at Lingfield today for his owner, Prince Khalid Abdullah. Ridden by Andrea Atzeni he tracked the leaders before being driven inside the final furlong and stayed on to lead in the final yards to beat the Richard Hannon trained Doughan Alb by a neck. Well done to Marion Ripoll who looks after Sash at home.
We enjoyed a wonderful morning on Saturday for our pre-season open morning. We welcomed 90 owners to Coombelands to see their horses on the gallops before sitting down to enjoy a champagne breakfast. We hope everyone enjoyed their morning as much as we did! Below are some of our favourite pictures.
