SANDY COVE has been our only flat runner of the year to date and became our first winner at Kempton last night. We hope this is a good sign for the season ahead with the beginning of the turf season fast approaching. SANDY COVE is becoming a bit of a Kempton specialist recording his 3rd win there last night and his 5th win overall. He ran very well first time out this year, finishing a close second, and seems to have come on for that run and won in good fashion under a very good ride from Ryan Tate. Ryan seems to get on very well with the horse and his 3 pound allowance proved beneficial as the horse was winning off a career high mark last night. He is owned by Blue Peter Racing and they have justified their decision not to sell him at the sales last year, hopefully they will have another fruitful year. We will probably now wait for the turf season for him as there are no obvious opportunities for him back at Kempton in the foreseeable future. He does want fast ground though so if it turns into a wet spring we may have to think again!
