The yard had a fantastic days racing on Friday with two of our highest rated horses both winning good quality sprint races at Bath & Newbury.
At Newbury we had top quality sprinter Gracious John running in the class 2 Dubai Duty Free handicap under Fran Berry. He has been in fantastic form at home but we were slightly worried about the ground being too soft for him however he handled it really well and came home strongly to win by a cosy half length. He has now won an impressive 12 races for us and owner Terry Reffell with hopefully many more to come!
Meanwhile at Bath the Shropshire Wolves owned Dougan won by 3.5 lengths eased down under the excellent handling of Silvestre De Sousa. After a frustrating season last year where nothing went his way it was great to see this talented sprinter back to his best. We should have lots of fun with him on the turf through the summer.
