Class 3 Newmarket Races ‘Double’ for RKBA purchases

Whilst busy inspecting yearlings for the forthcoming Goffs Orby sale it was great to put the catalogue down and see two of my purchases win Class 3 handicaps at Newmarket today.

First up was horses-in-training purchase The Statesman (pictured below) who only ran and won on Wednesday, but showed he was clearly none the worse for that outing when winning the 10f class 3 handicap in comfortable fashion. The son of Zoffany who is trained by Ian Williams and owned by Randolph & Mortimer Racing was given a cool ride by Manuel Fernandes and won by an authoritative 2 1/2 lengths off a rating of 87.

The second winner was €30,000 Goffs foal purchase Shenanigans. The daughter of Arcano was running her first race since winning at the Glorious Goodwood festival on 1st August and showed what a progressive filly she is when winning by 1 1/4 lengths off a rating of 91. Congratulations to her connections and to trainer Roger Varian. Black-type next !
