Al Suil Eile Gets Us Rolling
We’re up and running with our flat team in 2020 courtesy of Al Suil Eile’s win at Southwell on Sunday (12/01/20). This win made amends for a frustrating result for the horse at the same track only a week earlier. There he missed the break after other horses had caused a delay to the start and in the circumstances ran well to finish third.
On this occasion Al Suil Eile jumped well from the gates and was able to take up a position whereby he tracked the leaders from an early stage under Ben Curtis. He was never far away and turning for home attacked the front runners up the inside. Al Suil Eile got himself in to a duel with the eventual second a couple of furlongs from home. Knowing that our horse has form over a bit further I was always confident that he would be strong right up to the line and so it proved. In the end Al Suil Eile won by 3/4 of a length.
It is great to be up and running so soon in to the new year. We have a lovely team of horses gathered at our Bellwood Cottage and Highfield yards and I just pray that they stay fit and healthy for rest of the year.
