It seems a long time since March when Imperial Aura won at the Cheltenham Festival, and there has been little news to talk about since. It is great that racing has resumed in the last few weeks and the whole industry must be proud of how they have conducted themselves under the new guidelines.
KRB purchases have been running well since, with their first two year old runner Painless Potter being placed third, before running a super race in the Coventry Stakes at Ascot to be a staying on fifth. The two year old Isabella Giles won on debut at Leicester for Paul and Clare Rooney, Clive Cox and Adam Kirby. The daughter of Belardo looks a smart filly for connections. Other winners on the flat include Macs Blessings winning twice at Ayr for Stef Keniry, First Impression winning impressively at Redcar for John Quinn who also won with My Dandy Doc at Doncaster.
Paul and Clare Rooney have had another couple of winners with the Clive Cox trained Risk Taker winning well under Adam Kirby at Haydock and Pour Me A Drink making all under Joe Fanning to win at Ayr for Keith Dalgleish.
On the first day of jump racing back in Ireland the KRB purchase Laureate won well under Sean Flanagan at Limerick for trainer Colin McBratney. Sompteux won the maiden hurdle at Kilbeggan for Henry de Bromhead. He was bought by KRB as a yearling in Arquana. Kings Temptation won for the fourth time when easily taking the handicap chase for Ben Case and owner Lady Jane Grosvenor. He was a KRB foal purchase.
Lets hope there’s plenty more winners to come and will keep you posted on further purchases and oncoming sales.
