The Lion Is Awake Tonight

Posted on: 5th Jul 2018

SLEEPING LION won what looked quite a hot race when winning the Thatcham Butchers Handicap at Newbury this evening. Several of the runners beforehand were being backed which made us rather nervouse. SLEEPING LION was blocked in on the rails and nobody was going to let him out but Tom Queally eventually brought him round the field and won by just pushing him out hands and heels. This will have done SLEEPING LION'S confidence the world of good. He is a really big horse and hopefully will go on improving. He is out of one of Craig Bennets very first horses he ever bought called Flame of Hestia who is from the Alidiva, Sleepytime family.
