Presburg wins at Sandown!

Horse Racing - Coral-Eclipse Summer Festival - Ladies Day - Sandown ParkThe yard is buzzing in the wake of Presburg’s latest win at Sandown (pictured) on Friday (4th July). The race was the horse’s fifth win to date, and by far his most impressive as he swooped from last to first to take the Class 3 Handicap by a smooth 2 1/4 lengths. Not only did he manage to win the race, but he also scooped the best turned out prize with his USA themed quarter marks (it was 4th July, remember!).

Of course for Presburg’s jockey Oisin Murphy there was further cause for celebration as the win was his last as an apprentice. Oisin has had a fair few rides for us already this season, and had won on Presburg twice before Friday, so we were all delighted for him – click here to read the Racing Post’s coverage of the milestone win.

Flashy Queen on the other hand ran a rather disappointing race the following day at Haydock… She’ll have a short break now before coming back to make the most of her preferred soft ground towards the end of the summer.
