Ticking Katie & Millar Rose – the flying fillies

Ticking Katie landed the apprentice race at York on Friday to top a remarkable day and week for Ontoawinner. The same Owner connections had landed a maiden success for Millar Rose just 48 hours earlier at Catterick.

Katie hadn’t been herself in the early part of the season but showed signs of being back to her talented self at Sandown on her penultimate start. Arriving at York in tip top order she was well supported in the market by her followers and duly battled all the way to the line to give Ontoawinner a first York winner.

Millar Rose got off the mark at the fourth time of asking, having had good reasons for a couple of below par efforts on her way to getting off the mark. Given a good positive ride she also got up late on to stamp her authority on her race.

Well done to Mark, Carl and Jamie’s gang for a brace of winners in the week.

With several nice horses due to come out soon and the tough Piceno, Fazza and Abi Scarlet due out soon Ontoawinner will inevitably build on the 16 winners already amassed at the half way point in the season.
