Navagio 3rd in the Lincoln

Navagio ran out a very impressive 3rd on his debut for Ontoawinner yesterday at Doncaster. The James Horton trained 5 year old was handed a tricky draw in stall 1 of 20 for the first big handicap of the 2024 flat season.

Richard Kingscote was aboard the Footstepsinthesand gelding who was purchased at the Tattersalls horse in training sales late last year.

Drawn widest of all , with a strong headwind in play, Richard was forced to take cover and sat last of the main group in the early stages of the race.

At the 2 marker Richard began angling for gaps and Navagio relished cutting through the field and picked up really well to finish a gallant 3rd.

A fantastic performance from everyone involved and huge credit to James who had him spot on for the race. His owners can now look forward to some big days out this year.
