Battaash in a league of his own!

Our little pocket rocket proved to the world that he really is the fastest horse about when smashing the track record in the Nunthorpe at York.

He looked like he’d had a race on Saturday morning which is understandable, and he lost more weight than he had in any of his previous races this season. We’ll monitor how he is over the next week or so before making any decisions on his next race.

It’s hard to put into words what his win means to everyone at Faringdon Place. There were plenty of tears of joy shed as he crossed the line and we are very aware of how we lucky we are to have such an exceptional horse in the yard.  A big thank you must go to those closest to him – Bob, Viktoria, Wayne, Alison and Bluey plus Ian and Fernando (vets) and Lance (farrier).
