Corinthia Knight a successful Northern raider
The ever classy 4 year old Corinthia Knight finally got the elusive win on turf he so deserved in impressive style in the feature race at Pontefract on the 19th July night meeting!
Tracking the pace the chestnut gelding surged past the leader to win by a cosy 1 and a half lengths to record a second success of the season!
Well done to Archie Watson and all the team at Saxon Gate and well done to Danny Tudhope on a great ride! Congratulations to his owners on another success with the Society Rock gelding who only cost 15,000 Euros!
Another mention has to go to the other bargain purchase,Staxton, a £24,000 breezer from Goffs UK who ran a cracker of a race in the Scottish Stewards Cup to finish 3rd off a rating of 100. Carrying 9st 7lb in a race of that quality is not easy, so well done to his owners, Tim and the team, and David Allan who gave him a patient ride.
