The highly versatile colt, Urban Legend, who has been known to run over distances as far as 3200m and yet has not finished out of the frame in four starts over 1200m and 1400m already this season, yesterday put in a scintillating performance to win the King George Classic Qualifier for 4-7yo.
Over at Raceclubs on Monday, the top three year old sprinters turned out for the second round of the Nunthorpe Sprint Qualifiers. Once again, these events proved extremely popular and there were sufficient entrants to fill to full-size instances of the colts division.
Performance of the day though must go to Dark Assassin for owner The Face. The five year old won this full field contest in convincing style on the American dirt, giving 2lb and a beating to closest pursuer, shotgun_mike’s Inspirona Amazian.
Owner Daztron made an enviable start to the Raceclubs Championship series when stable stars Silver Sprinter and Sir Sam Silver, the only runners for the yard in Champ races on the first day, completed an impressive double.
