21st July 2017, Jockey George Wood
A massive congratulations to the connections of Raven’s Lady as she scores her third career win – her second in succession at the July course in Newmarket!
After winning over C&D on 30th June, Raven’s Lady received a 3lbs increase to a rating of 88 and she took full advantage of her mark last night in the EBF fillies handicap race – securing a tasty pot of prize money!
The tough filly traveled powerfully, stayed on gamely and really dug deep to hang on for the win. Jockey George Wood rode the perfect race and said “the minute Clon Coulis came alongside Raven’s Lady, she picked up again and was determined not to let her pass. She showed real guts!”
Trainer Marco Botti was delighted with the performance and says “she’s proved to be a revelation over 6 furlongs and next time I would like to look towards Listed level.”
The future certainly looks bright for Raven’s Lady and hopefully she can continue to progress this season! We must thank Marco and his team once again for all their work behind the scenes, it’s superb to see the hard work paying off.
Marco will await our revised handicap rating before formulating the next plan.
