It was a great night at Sandown last night, TIGHT LIPPED and SPA'S DANCER both won in convincing style. It was great to have 2 winners at a Grade 1 track like Sandown and it was so good for all the owners there who had a great night too. Both horses could return to Sandown for their respective targets in 2 weeks time. They both clearly like the track and it is a horses for courses track.
It was great for Ryan Tate to ride his first winner for the yard as his father Jason was stable jockey for several years. One of his best rides was when he won the Hunt Cup on Refuse to Lose when he dictated from the front. Ryan rode a very good tactical race from the front last night, like father like son!
There is still a share left in TIGHT LIPPED if anyone is interested. He is certainly giving his owners plenty of fun this season.
