Ventura Destiny wins again
For a filly we bought for just €17,000 in France 12 months ago, she has now rewarded her owners with two back-to-back wins!
She and jockey Ben Sanderson have formed a winning partnership on the all-weather. After taking the 7f nursery handicap at Newcastle on October 25th, the pair were reunited at Southwell last evening, once again over 7 furlongs. Ben kept her in touch and then began to push her along over 4f out (at this point, we were thinking that she was not enjoying the sand in her eyes!) She made good headway on the inner to track the race leaders 3f out, beginning to challenge at the 2 furlong pole out, moving to lead well, pull away and stay on strongly at the line, 5 lengths ahead of the 2nd placed horse.

The daughter of Outstrip is certainly giving her owners some thrills and looks to have plenty more to give! Well done everyone.
