Katey Kontent Returns with a Handicap Success

Following a 221 day break from the track – where she had a narrow miss finishing strongly in second last time out at Salisbury – Katey Kontent made an impressive statement on her first run back this season with a notable performance at Windsor yesterday evening (13th May). Fending off the fast-improving favourite, and disrupting his ongoing winning form, the four-year-old filly was given an excellent ride by Rossa Ryan, who quickened smartly in the final furlongs and drove her to the line to steal the lead by a nose in this Sprint Series Qualifier Handicap.


Showing progressive form towards the tail end of last season, we are really pleased that she has wintered well and returned to racing by picking things up where she left off. Having held her in high regard since her two-year-old campaign, she consistently proves herself to be a strong and talented individual. Although this can often leave us at a disadvantage with the handicapper, she always endures and loves to finish her races with a late challenge and unwavering pace; an aspect that continues to make her an exciting sprinter to watch unfold on the day. She is also versatile when it comes to her ability and the going, having shown she doesn’t necessarily favour the quicker turf over a cut in the ground, which bodes well when navigating the conditions around her entries.


After kicking things off in a spectacular fashion, this classy win marks her third career success and brings another nice result for her owners, Stephen Barrow and Simon Hope.
