A magical day!
10th August 2020
Sunday proved a magical day as we enjoyed an across-the-countries treble with winners in France, Ireland and closer to home at Thirsk.
All of Sunday’s winners epitomise what we aim to achieve for our owners with the triumphant trio all highly rated, quality horses that compete in top races.
Team captain Watchable needs no introduction, the six-furlong course record holder at Epsom won yet another race at Thirsk to set the ball rolling on a memorable afternoon.
A few hours later Maystar, our globe-trotting multiple winner from the Archie Watson stable, made all the running in the Listed Moonlight Cloud Stakes in Deauville to the delight of his horse racing syndicate.
Just 15 minutes later stablemate Glen Shiel provided the icing and cherry on the cake when scoring his first Group win in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland.
We’ve been bowled over by the huge amount of messages we’ve received since, both from owners within these fine horses and also from other friends and owners within the Hambleton ranks.
We’d like to say a huge well done to all owners and also pay tribute to the team at Saxon Gate, who along with Archie prepared two horses to peak and win Stakes races in two different countries on the same day - a quite remarkable achievement.
Their efforts provided a magical day for some very appreciative owners!
