Breeze-up recruit wins in great style

24th February 2022

The fast start to 2022 continued today as our latest breeze-up graduate to hit the track won in great style at Newcastle.

Fly To Glory, purchased from the Goresbridge breeze-ups last year, posted an impressive winning debut effort under Hollie Doyle.

A £36,000 purchase from the Goresbridge breeze-up sales last year, Fly To Glory, the horse with the longest stride at his sale, appealed to our experts as a quality prospect at the sales and the patience Archie and his owners have shown in waiting for him to be ready for the track has now given him every chance to become just that.

Hollie had the son of Cotai Glory well positioned early on, despite her mount displaying obvious signs of inexperience in the first half of the contest. When push came to show Fly To Glory found generously for pressure to hold off the warm favourite in quite cosy fashion to the delight of his horse racing syndicate.

With the front pair quickly pulling clear of their toiling rivals in the closing stages the form looks strong. Hollie was thrilled with him afterwards, saying Fly To Glory had given her a great feel and that she liked him a lot.

It is of course early days but after our latest breeze-up recruit won in great style it looks like his owners have a very nice horse to enjoy going forward.

In recent years our breeze-up syndicates have enjoyed Listed winners at Deauville and Epsom and many other great days out.

Fly To Glory clearly has some way to go to scale those heights but he could hardly have made a brighter start to his career. His next outing is awaited with great interest.
