SLEEPING LION and SCARAMANGA Awake for Newmakret

Posted on: 18th Aug 2018

Two nice three year old colts run at Newmarket this afternoon. SLEEPING LION was given a lot to do in his last race when he came from way off the pace to finish third at Ascot. It was a tremendous run especially so as it was against older horses. Today he is against his own age group which will suit much better. He is a very big handsome colt out of Flame of Hestia who was one of the first fillies James trained for his owner Craig Bennet who owns Merry Fox Stud.

Our second runner SCARAMANGA is improving all the time and is jsut as good looking but not as big as SLEEPING LION. He was bought at The October Arqana Yearling Sales off Haras de Bourgeauville who we have bought LORD GEORGE, LADY BERGAMOT and their sister REINE MAGNICIQUE in the past few years.

We had a good work morning today Racecourse Side which was pretty quiet as it seems that most people worked on The Limekilns. We took some 2yos colts over there second lot and 2yos fillies third lot. It is a big open space and can be a bit daunting but they all behaved very well. They will come on a lot for the experience.
