Another 1st place takes us to 27 winners this year
Another good day at the office today, with a super display of doggedness from the Michael Bell trained JOE'S SPIRIT at Chelmsford, under Franny Norton. The Racing Post summed his performance up precisely, with: "Made all, ridden over 1f out, sustained battle with runner-up after, stayed on and held on well inside final furlong, gamely." He has now put himself in consideration for the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot, having also run a super race on debut. He thrilled his owners today, particularly Joe himself, who even got interviewed by 'Tommo' in the paddock (see photo). We know he is thrilled and no doubt can't wait to tell his story to his school chums. Congratulations to all owners.
We also saw ZABALETASWANSONG run a great race at Windsor to take 2nd under Sean Levey and we look forward to seeing him race over 7 furlongs going forward.
