Indomeneo is our 50th winner of 2019
INDOMENEO WINS. A sixth career win for the son of Piccolo and a super training performance from Richard Fahey. He ran at Haydock on Friday and finished a respectable 4th, returning to the track 24 hours later to win over 2 furlongs further, under Connor Murtagh.

VENTURA OCEAN (Richard Fahey) - Placed 2nd over 7 furlongs in the feature race at Doncaster. Rated 90, he has finished 1st or 2nd in 6 of his 11 starts over 6 and 7 furlongs.
ICE COLD IN ALEX (Ken Condon) - Was a fast finishing 3rd in the €125k Premier Handicap at The Curragh. Considering all the racing coverage on Racing TV yesterday, the channel chose him as their 'eyecatcher' from the day!

OVER THE JUMPS:
LEGAL HISTORY (David Pipe) - Having been off the track for 65 days after wind surgery, he ran a cracker in the Listed Summer Hurdle at Market Rasen under Tom Scudamore to place 2nd. He has been a revelation over obstacles since we purchased him, with his form reading 3422112-22 and giving his owners some superb days racing. Yet more to come from him we think....!!
PS. Well done to Nicky Henderson with an across the card four timer at Market Rasen yesterday too - and it's only July! Did you know that we have just launched a new syndicate with the master of Seven Barrows? A filly by CRILLON (sire of the great Buveur d'Air no less) and shares are now available here: http://www.middlehamparkracing.net/horses/view,crillon-ex-similaresisoldofa-filly_280.htm
A very productive couple of days on the track, with 3 winners, three 2nd's and two 3rd's, as well as 5 horses in 4th position. As we mentioned in the story preview, we have now passed £700,000 of prize money for the year and it was nice to get 50 winners on the board too! Plenty of top action coming up for the rest of July - as ever, see all our up to date entries and declarations here: http://www.middlehamparkracing.net/entries.htm
We loved this tweet from one of our followers on Twitter: "MPR are flying right now, I find myself shouting their horses on even when I have no interest in the race!" THANK YOU!
