Our Two-Year-Old Sprinters Fly Out in Front

Breaking his maiden with a stylish win at Doncaster on Saturday (18th May), we were delighted to see our promising juvenile – The Dragon King – challenge impressively on quicker ground over five furlongs, to finish with his head in front on only his third outing.  


A fancied favourite in all his starts so far, this two-year-old is a well-presented colt who moves beautifully and hails a pedigree that unquestionably indicates he is built for speed. Having shaped encouragingly from his last two starts, he didn’t love the softer ground last time out but despite that didn’t run a bad race and we are pleased to find that that performance brought him on even more for this occasion. With valuable experience quickly forming under his belt, he was much quicker to settle into this race and confident in his approach, as Jim Crowley positioned him well before asking for another gear. Battling for home in closing stages, he outbid his rivals with undisputed pace and won smartly by half a length. 


A terrific result for those involved in the Middleham Park racing syndicate, who have some very bright prospects ahead with this horse.


Our next winner came in the form of Sergio Parisse; another promising two-year-old, who was the very pleasing winner of the restricted Maiden at Windsor on Monday evening (20th May). This was an especially valuable result, with £40,000 added, which made this a very nice race to win. Showing plenty of ability after finishing third first time out at Leicester, he put his knowledge to good use making all under the stands rail. Still showing signs of greenness in the closing stages where he hung across the track, he won convincingly under the ride of Rossa Ryan and hopefully will progress further from his second start.


We are delighted that the team are gathering steam, especially with our two-year-old runners, and hope this upward trend continues over the coming weeks as we have some nice horses to start.
