Company’s romp in picturesThere’s winning and winning. All victories on the racecourse are to be celebrated but there is something extra special when your horse runs all over the opposition, dominating them with almost embarrassing ease.
And so it was with Company Ascot at Haydock on Saturday who turned the £30,000 handicap into something of a procession as she eased past her toiling rivals in the final two furlongs.
Once Tom Eaves asked the four-year-old filly to move on she did so in an instant, quickly putting significant daylight between herself and the rest in the style of a very good horse.
The easy victory was a huge delight to her owners, who are now looking forward to stepping up their talented filly into Listed company next month in France.
The success once again advertises the record and quality of our Goffs Premier recruits with Kevin. Just nine horses have been purchased out of the Premier Yearling sale since 2012, with Company one of seven winners from that group. The other two horses were a fun race mare who placed several times and a lovely filly who looked set to do well before injury intervened and she was sold on to be a broodmare.
Company will bid to become the third of the nine Kevin Ryan-trainer Premier graduates to earn Black Type for her owners on her next start in France, and all this with horses purchased for a maximum of £29,000.
The pictures below really do emphasise the ease of Company’s win on Saturday. Here’s hoping for more fireworks in October!
