The True Arthenus Turns Up At The Races Today

Posted on: 15th Aug 2016

ARTHENUS enjoyed himself out in front and raced throughout with his ears pricked. New Bay went past him easily but ARTHENUS battled back and finished a very good second which was the best we could ever have hoped for. This was the ARTHENUS that we know at home who shows that he is a nice horse on his day. The thinking was to send him to Deauville to do something different and have a small field. He probably does not like being crowded in big handicaps and he looked to have really enjoyed himself today. The other encouraging thing we can take from the race was when it looked as if he was going to be dwarfed by the rest of the field he buckled down and ran on to finish second. We were absolutely thrilled with this run and it was such a relief for James.

Saturday was not a good day when both STONEY BROKE & MISSED CALL who we thought were both in good form ran below par. STONEY BROKE never looked happy and MISSED CALL flattened out quite quickly but the ground may not have suited her.
