Indian Tygress winnning at Kempton for the second time at Kempton

INDIAN TYGRESS kicked off a good evening or james Fanshawe when winning 32Red Handicap at Kempton on Tuesday evening. From six runs she has now had three wins, two seconds and a nowhere. The nowhere was on good to firm ground at Newmarket which she does not enjoy. She likes either softish ground or the all weather and each time she has had her conditions she has run well. She is a half sister to THE TIN MAN and DEACON BLUES and will one day take over breeding from her mother PERSARIO for Ken & Elizabeth Grundy. She may possibly try for some black type in a Listed Race next time. All her family improve with age so could be an exciting filly next year.

THE PINTO KID is a small little fella but he has a big heart which he showed in the following race when winning well. George Wood who rode both horses had him a little way back on the rail but when he asked him to quicken it was instantaneous and in a matter of strides he was well in command and won well. He has a huge character and Sam who looks after him also rides him out everyday and there has been many a morning when he has been hanging on for dear life. There were several of his owners in the FRED ARCHER RACING - BRUCE Syndicate at Kempton to witness THE PINTO KIDS win. Last time he got beaten a nose so he deserved this win and we are looking froward to racing him next year.

VISOR was a little unlucky not to get a clearer run at Yarmouth but finished a very fast finishing third in the 1m2f Jark (KL) Ltd Handicap. It was a brave run from him as he was going through the tightest of gaps and loving it. He can be quite highly strung so we were thrilled to see him being so tough. Martin Harley was very complimentary about him. In the next race DUCHESS OF AVON looked as if she was on course to win the 7f Peter Dunnett 20 Year Memorial Handicap but was denied it by a nose on the line. It is a shame as she is going to the sales next week at Tattersalls and it would have enhanced her value to have been a winner.

Tomorrow night we have THE TIN MAN 'S lead horse ENVISAGING running at Chelmsford. He has a desperate draw in stall 11 of 11. He is a lovely kind horse and was bought at the July Sales as a mate for THE TIN MAN and has been a great asset.
