Ruby Ruby Ruby – what a wonderful mare she is, even at the ripe old age of 11! Congratulations to all of her Owners on this fabulous, surprise win…whom for many your first win with HOTSR. We do hope you enjoyed the champagne!
We were a little bit worried about the ground not being soft enough but from the offset Ruby never really looked like getting beat. Travelling strongly in a much more handier position than usual, she soon edged to the front and once there she quickly had her rivals off the bridle. With just Chillabella remaining upsides around the final bend, she enjoyed nudging her rival out the way and from there pulled clear. She kept us on our toes at the final hurdle with an awkward jump, but ultimately it was a hands and heels for Josh in the closing stages.
Josh was delighted with Ruby Yeats and hopefully we can see the mare win one more time season season before she retires to become a Broodmare.
