Afaak off the mark

Ghanaati is a horse both we and Sheikh Hamdan hold close to our hearts so it’s special when one of her offspring win, as Afaak did on Saturday evening. He’s a lovely horse, but is mentally still quite immature and that showed in the race. However, once he got the idea of what as required he put the race to bed quickly and won cosily in the end. We will see what kind of handicap mark he gets and then go from there.

Sasini was another who really pleased us when she finished a close second at Nottingham on her first start of the season. She’s very well bred so the first aim is to win with her and then go on.
