Mulligatawny triumphs at Ayr
A successful foray yesterday evening at Ayr for our two ROGER FELL trained runners, both ridden by Clifford Lee.
KUPA RIVER placed 3rd in the 7f race and continued his fine form this year. From 9 starts, he has won three and been 2nd or 3rd in five more!
Then 30 minutes later MULLIGATAWNY went off second favourite in the 1m 2f race. He was always close up and then ridden to lead over 2f out, although the favourite challenged, he held on well in the final furlong to bring up his first win of the season - a fourth of his career. He is such a likeable horse who always puts his head down and tries. An extra special win for one of his owners, who was celebrating a 3rd wedding anniversary cheering him home in a restaurant with her husband! Well done to all his owners; there's a lovely photo of them enjoying champagne in the winners' suite at Ayr in the gallery.
We love the photo of Kupa River and Mulligatawny in the Ayr stable yard after racing giving each other congratulations! Thank you to Sarah Jones who looks after them for taking this photo - it's just wonderful.
