Corinthia completes the course
Corinthia Knight won well at Bath today under a masterful ride from Hollie Doyle. Drawn wide in stall 9, he was well away from the stalls to go into a share of the lead at the first bend.
Racing prominently throughout, Hollie asked Corinthia to go on at the 2 marker and he responded in game fashion to go into the lead. He repelled all late challengers to go on to score by a neck from the fast finishing Big Lachie who is trained by Mark Loughnane.
That was Corinthia Knights 12th success, a remarkable achievement from the 5-year-old son of Society Rock. This is a horse that placed 4th at the Breeders Cup, was 3-year-old all-weather sprint champion in 2018 and has taken his owners to Royal Ascot, France, Canada and also won a listed race in Sweden.
Huge credit must go to Archie and all of the team at Saxon Gate. That was Archies 23rd for us and Hollies 6th, long may it continue.
The win brought up another significant milestone for Ontoawinner. We have now had a winner at every flat course in the UK. Bath was the last course on the list for some time. We have now registered 217 winners since we formed in 2011 and had some fantastic times along the way. We move on and look forward to ticking many more milestones off the list.
