Back-to-back Winning Debuts at Salisbury

Our double action continued this week at Salisbury on Tuesday, as we were delighted to see Arabian Sun and Miss Stormy Night each land their winning debuts.


Owned by Sheikh Sultan of AlMohamediya Racing, Arabian Sun is a smart two-year-old colt who showed much promise on his first career start back in May at Goodwood, where he finished in a commendable second place. Quick to progress on that first entry, we were thrilled to see him go one better this time on slightly quicker ground. Breaking well, he was swift to show early signs of speed, but Richard Kingscote tucked him prominently in behind the leader. With two furlongs from home, he was last off the bridle but still had ground to make up before his head was in front. The moment a gap opened up, he seized his opportunity with an impressive turn of foot and ran on tremendously to beat the field by half a length. We are really pleased with the professional attitude he has developed so early on with his racing, particularly as a juvenile, and we look forward to his next start.  


Next to get off the mark was three-year-old filly, Miss Stormy Night, who secured her first success for Norman Court Stud and Susan Bunney. As one we took our time with as a two-year-old, she made her first track appearance back in January but has since had multiple entries on the all-weather and turf and we are really pleased to see her come on from each performance. She is a sharp filly with a habit of breaking a little awkwardly, but Richard Kingscote was quick to recover her and harness that keenness, finding some cover to settle her into a nice rhythm in mid-division. Picking up beautifully inside the final furlong, she stayed on towards the line to win by a neck. We were really pleased with this run from her; she has shown a clear indication of strong pace over six furlongs and the benefit of quicker ground this time out really suited her. We look forward to building on this form with her upcoming entries.
