11th April 2013, Jockey Jamie Moore
How fantastic it was to see Fruity O’Rooney get that win he so deserved after such a consistent and thrilling season throughout 2013!
We were slightly concerned that the short turnaround time between his races (just 4 days after his second at Ascot Racecourse) would be an issue but as always Fruity battled until the very end and gave everything. It was pretty tense in the final stages of the race, but Fruity O’Rooney always found that little bit more and he came home to an encore of delighted Fruity fans!
Fruity O’Rooney truly has the heart of a lion and really is the perfect partnership horse because he is so genuine. To say we are thrilled with Fruity O’Rooney is an understatement. We couldn’t be more pleased for the horse, Jamie and all of his Owners – who have now won over £111,000 in prize money during this horse’s racing career. Well done Fruity – what a star he is!
