Ticking Katie 2nd At Doncaster
Ticking Katie lined up in the Class 2 Fillies Nursery over 6 & 1/2 furlongs today at Doncaster. Joey Haynes who claims 5lb was aboard the Karl Burke trained filly for this ultra-competitive sprint.
Katies form read 1-2-2 going into the race and we were hopeful that she would make her presence felt in one of the best fillies nurseries of the year.
Drawn in stall 2, she broke smartly and Joey was keen to set the pace and make it a real test.
She lead through the early stages and 3 furlongs from home, Joey asked her to go on and she went into the lead by a couple of lengths. At the furlong marker, she was still a couple in front, still had her head down and showing tremendous courage to battle on but unfortunately she was collared late on by the fast finishing Aqlaam Vision under William Buick and she finished second, 2 lengths clear of 3rd
This was an excellent performance from all involved, she is a proper little star and is as tough as old boots, her owners and everyone at OnToAWinner are very proud of her.
