Celebrating with sauce of the bubbly kind at Worcester
The champagne corks were popping last night at Worcester (metaphorically at least!) when Ruaraidh Hugh gave the yard its first win of the season (and his first for two years) and jockey John Kington rode out his claim as a result.
Acquired by the Harbour Rose Partnership in January, this was by far Rory’s best performance to date and happily the owners were present to witness, and enjoy, this smart little horse’s success.
In a field of 15, JK always had Rory handily placed and alternated between leading and just dropping him in behind throughout the 2m4f trip.
He led again from three out and simply continued to draw away for an easy win of five lengths from the runner up, with the rest of the field some 20+ lengths behind him!
Johnny gave the horse a brilliant ride and we were doubly delighted that he rode out his claim on one of our horses.
Smiles all round!
