As we saw the month of May conclude, the Beechdown team were pleased to get another win under our belts during the Salisbury meeting on Saturday 28th May, where Regal Envoy got his head in front in the five-furlong Handicap under the steer of Liam Keniry. Ridden in the silks of winning connections, Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds, the three-year-old colt broke speedily and seemed to set the pace early on with fellow front runner, So Smart. Regal Envoy put in a thrilling performance to quicken and pull back first place over the line in closing stages. Dropping him back a furlong in trip to his last outing worked in favour and we were delighted to see him finish so strongly.
Two days later, we were delighted to see our heads in front again, this time with four-year-old Get It who landed a success in the five-furlong Windsor Sprint Series Qualifier. He broke smartly grabbed the rail and ran comfortably throughout. The final furlong saw him pull away from the field to lead over the line with a couple of lengths clear. A confident ride was given by jockey, John Fahy, who rode in the colours of Mr Andrew Cohen. We are so pleased with how this horse continues to perform and to see him secure his second victory so far this season. It’s great to see him back in front after not handling the track at Newmarket last time.
On Friday 3rd June, two-year-old Redemption Time was next to secure a win over the five-furlong distance at Bath in the Novice Stakes. The Harry Angel bred colt, ridden by Adam Kirby in the racing silks of Atlantic Equine, was one of four runners and broke well to start off quickly, impressively leading the race from start to finish. Despite showing signs of greenness, we were very pleased with how he handled himself and quickened when asked with a furlong from home. He is an exciting one to watch and we look forward to seeing him progress further from this performance. We hope to see him at Royal Ascot.
