Yourartisonfire wins at Sandown
Yourartisonfire ran in the 7 furlong Class 3 handicap this evening at Sandown. Martin Harley was aboard the Karl & Elaine Burke colt who is co-owned by OnToAWinner, Wayne Rooney & John O Shea.
There were 2 non-runners, so the field lined up with only 4 runners for this competitive handicap with Yourartisonfire the outsider of the field, sent off at 4/1.
He jumped well and sat in second position with Frankie Dettori happy to set the pace on Secret Rebel with the Sir Michael Stoute trained favourite – Mission Approved held up in last position.
Our lad travelled really well, stalking the leader and taking it up 2 out. He quickened really well and no other horse could land a blow and he went on to score comfortably by 2 lengths.
He had been off the track for 48 days and the rest seemed to reinvigorate him. He really deserved this success as he has not been out of the money on any of his starts to date, a model of consistency.
Well done to team Burke and well done to all of his OnToAWinner owners, a great bunch of people who are great supporters of OnToAWinner and deserve all the success that comes their way.
