Island Brave... As Brave as a Lion

Island Brave... As Brave as a Lion
So pleased to be able to report that Island Brave returned to the winners enclosure today, winning the Old Borough Cup at Haydock, under a superb ride by Silvestre De Sousa. It’s been 9 months and this his 8th run sine his last win, and he has been running very well in his recent runs. A drop back to 1mile 6f today under a prominent ride by Silvestre De Sousa, made the difference, and having been headed 3 furlongs old, battled back gamely to win by 1/2 a length to a closing field. Having been beaten by a nose on Wednesday by a horse ridden by Sylvestre it’s nice to see the luck going our way today. So pleased for his owner Donald Kerr who is a great supporter of the yard, and a big thank you to all the staff at Kingston Common Farm, for the early starts and late finishes. It’s days like this that make all the hard work worth it. The horses are in great form, and hoping to add to the tally of winners over the next couple of weeks.
