A sixth double for us this year; this time courtesy of Timoshenko and Magical Wish
Thirteen days after his win at Chepstow, TIMOSHENKO travelled up to Ayr and had an extra furlong to cover (1m 5f), but he prevailed under a super ride by talented apprentice Gavin Ashton for Sir Mark Prescott. Still green and showing immaturity before and during the race, Timoshenko is certainly going places, learning with every win!! He has an entry at Lingfield on Saturday, so we'll see how he is and what Sir Mark's thoughts are, but he will be going for a hat-trick wherever he runs next!
Then at Windsor in the evening sunshine, the Richard Hannon trained MAGICAL WISH was having his second start. He was unlucky to be undone on debut by just a short head at Salisbury and the finish was even closer yesterday: A photo was called but this time the race was his-by a nose! However, he and the 2nd horse had pulled 2 1/2 lengths away from the 3rd in the 6f contest. He didn't like being in the front on his own for too long and when joined 2 furlongs out, showed a willing attitude and the son of Heeraat looks yet another exciting 2 year old from our string.
The magic sound of happy owners greeted him and Silvestre De Sousa into the winners’ enclosure at Windsor; he was the 100th winner of the season for SDS too.
Well done and congratulations to both sets of owners.
