Monday, Tuesday – Happy Days
Little Lady Katie ran yesterday in the fillies maiden over 6 furlongs with Joey Haynes taking the ride, she was drawn in stall 6 for the 15 runner event and sent off at a huge price of 50/1.
From the stalls, Joey settled her in mid division. She was showing a few signs of inexperience in the early stages and became outpaced mid-way through the race, Joey had to get to work and she responded in great fashion.
She started to rally and pass horses and by the furlong marker, she had gone into a share of the lead and went on to score gamely by a head.
She is a very well bought filly with a great attitude.
A very welcome surprise in a bonus race – a great start to the week.
Toocoolforschool ran in the maiden this evening over the same distance with Ben Curtis on board the son of Showcasing. He opened up at 9/2 and was sent off the well supported 2/1 favourite.
He was drawn in stall 9 for the 9 runner event.
From the off, Ben was eager to make the most of his draw and grab the rail. Keen to set the tempo, he positioned himself at the front and led from pillar to post to score by over a length.
We have always felt that this could be a nice horse and the signs are very promising, this was a very convincing win with ears pricked all the way to the line, a great sight.
Two 2 year old winners in 2 days – dreamland!
A massive well done to all their owners and to Karl Burke and all of his team at Spigot Lodge, a great bunch of people at the top of their game.
