Superb plan and ride
Many Congratulations to our close friend and associate Vaughan Marshall on training the winner of the Gr1 J&B Met at Kenilworth.
Anton Marcus gave HILL FIFTY FOUR (2nd last year) a masterful ride within a plan hatched by Vaughan Marshall to overcome his wide draw. Gently arriving at the front to take a soft lead, HILL FIFTY FOUR took the field well into the straight then went for the ground closer to the centre of the course allowing challengrs on the inside. At the right moment, Anton gave his horse the word and skipped clear to win with something in hand.
Champion owners Markus and Ingrid Jooste had not won the Met before and were clearly thrilled.
How many Group 1s is that Vaughan? 26?
