Last time he won a Listed race and tonight he won the €125,000 Rockingham handicap off top weight. His 12th career win and tonight off a career high mark of 106, El Astronaute did it again. The son of Approve really has been a legend for myself, owner Ross Harmon and trainers John & Sean Quinn. I purchased him with Sean Quinn from the Tattersalls Ascot breeze-up sale as an unraced 2-year-old for £38,000 and he has been an absolute star. Wins have included at Glorious Goodwood, York, Newmarket, Epsom and Chester and he possesses so much raw speed. Congratulations to all winning connections and to all the team at John Quinn’s.
