Goodwood - THE UNIBET GOLDEN MILE HANDICAP STAKES
(Class 2 Handicap)
We purchased this son of Arcano from the 2016 Tattersalls Autumn Horses-in-Training sale (from the stable of Kevin Prendergast.) Rated 82 after 3 starts, he won his last race at Dundalk over a mile before he joined ourselves and David O'Meara. Who else would we send him to but David, who worked wonders with our Old Newton Cup winner Tawdeea, who came from the same sale the previous year.
Waarif has enjoyed a fabulous 2018 season, winning 4 races and £91,000 in prize money, including the historic Carlisle Bell in course record time! Now rated over 100, he is now a proud member of our '100 Club'
Syndicate manager update: A horse who runs at all the big meetings, in several big handicaps every year. In his recent races, he's contested the Lincoln Handicap and the Cambridgeshire, no less. He is looking magnificent at the moment at he's destined for another fantastic season ahead. We'll have all the big 1mile and 7 furlong heritage handicaps throughout the year in his diary.
