A Few Nice Winners For The Pegasus Yard

Posted on: 14th Aug 2019

SINCERITY was our last runner and a winner when she made the long journey down to Ffos Las. She was our first runner there when winning IWEC Electrical Services Maiden Handicap Fillies' Stakes and she was also the first horse to travel in our new horse box. Tom Marquand certainly earnt his riding fee as she still looked very green and was on and off the bridle but really knuckled down in the final furlong to actually win quite nicely. She looks a nice filly for the future for the Elite Members. She is a half sister to ZEST who raced for the yard until her retirement in the middle of last year.

HARRY'S BAR was very slow away at Chelmsford where often it is hard to win coming from behind but he did just that. He was plum last coming into the straight but picked off the whole field one by one to win going away in the end. That is three wins from his last three starts and when coming back to 5f. He is from a great family that take a bit of time but are very tough.

FRED ARCHER RACING had a good spell with their last three runners. SPANISH ARCHER ridden by Dan Muscutt bounced back at Doncaster to win the Unison Campaigning For Public Services Handicap after his only poor run at Chelmsford in June. Dan rode him very confidently and got up on the line. He is a lovely horse who is hopefully still going places. He has only had six races and won two of them and been second in two. He was raised 4lbs by the handicapper.

Little but tough THE PINTO KID ridden by his usual jockey George wood did his very hardest to win the Matchbook Betting Podcast Handicap at Kempton but unfortunately was beaten a neck on the line by what looked like a giant called. He fought back once when he was headed but could not sustain it a second time. He was put up 5lbs for his second place but I suppose the third was six and a half lengths back.

Lorenzo Atori was having only his second ride when he took the mount on ENVISAGING at Yarmouth in the Racing Welfare Apprentice Handicap but rode him superbly him to win by 6 1/2 lengths. He consequently was put up 8lbs which is a bit harsh for a 5 year old in an apprentice race.

We must not forget NORMA who won nicely at Sandown. She was ridden by George Wood when winning The Follow @racingtv On Twitter Fillies' Handicap to beat the John Gosden trained favourite New Jazz who was receiving a 1lb from us. She was hit hard also with an 8lb rise in the ratings. Norma has quite a character but is very tough and hopefully she will still be able to win again.
