Glorious Goodwood has historically been a good festival for horses purchased by myself and the 2023 renewal saw 2 winners for myself and trainers John & Sean Quinn. First up came Lord Riddiford who won the opening race of the festival and a race he was winning for the 3rd year on the trot – what a training performance from John and Sean and many congratulations to their owners the JAM Partnership who love Goodwood nearly as much as the horse does ! Lord Riddiford was a €27k yearling purchase from the Tattersalls Ireland sale.
Next up was the young pretender to Lord Riddiford’s crown, JM Jungle. JM Jungle is a 3-year-old by Bungle Inthejungle and cost £46,000 from the Goffs UK yearling sale in 2021 and like Lord Riddiford was winning over the 5f distance. He is a progressive young horse who has not been out of the top four in 7 races in 2023. Congratulations to his owners MPS Racing Ltd and The Ayrshire Tradesmen.
Well done also to John & Sean Quinn and all their team at home and to jockey Jason Hart who rode both winners.
