Double at Wolverhampton
A very successful evening at Wolverhampton was enjoyed thanks to 2yo Poetic Force and 3yo Russian Ranger both winning their handicaps.
Poetic Force is owned by The Sawgrass Survivors, a group of semi professional golfers headed by Mark Vandenberghe of Annie Byers and Ned Ludd fame. We bought this horse at the Doncaster breeze up sales in the spring and took great pleasure from this win.
Russian Ranger is the half brother to a lovely filly we raced some years ago Russian Rosie. This fellow might not be quite up to her class but a 4 length victory here under Richard Kingscote was just reward for the patience shown by owners John Hobson and Graham Clark of The Traditionalists partnership.
