20 January

Posted on January 20, 2019

Taunton on a Saturday afternoon and then Ayr the next day is quite a journey, but ASK BEN made it worthwhile ! The plan had been to wait for the River Don next Saturday, but with no rain forecast during the week and Doncaster watering (in January !!) we thought we’d go to Ayr for the better ground. Ben had a wonderful time – bounced out, and simply ran and jumped the field silly. He finished 20 lengths clear, under a penalty, and it could have been plenty more. For a young horse having only his 2nd start under Rules, he’s a complete professional – a joy to have in the yard and race. Plan now will be the 3m Grade 2 novice at Haydock in February and then, all being well, the Albert Bartlett in March.
