Yourartisonfire 3rd at Warwick

Yourartisonfire ran in the 0-85 class 4 handicap over 7 furlongs yesterday at Warwick, his usual partner Mike Metcalfe took the ride.

It was a competitive looking race and his 1st try at 7 furlongs.

He broke smartly and was up with the pace in the early stages, on the swing for home, the field made its way to the near side with Mike trying to grab the rail and push on from there. Unfortunately he got hampered and lost a couple of lengths but stayed on really strongly to finish a close third. He made up a lot of ground in the closing stages to suggest this trip or maybe even a mile will be his forte next year.

Eight previous winners finished behind him yesterday and with his versatility for ground and distance he will be a better horse next year. His owners can look forward to plenty of good days out.
