Emotional win for Pogo

Just as we thought it couldn’t get any better, Pogo goes and puts his head in front on the line in the last on Friday at York. He’s a very smart horse, and you won’t meet many with more enthusiasm for the job of being a racehorse than him.

He is owned by John Hills long standing supporters Gary and Linnet Woodward, who are also great friends of ours. Until now Gary and Lin hadn’t been at the races when any of their horses trained by us had won, and we were beginning to wonder if there was some sort of jinx! We certainly celebrated breaking the jinx in style!

Pogo enjoys a bit of cut in the ground and loves Newmarket (having won there twice) so hopefully we will have lots of nice options for him as the season goes on.
