Victory in £250k Weatherbys Supersprint with £1K filly

 In Latest News

A five month plan to contest the £250k Weatherbys Supersprint at Newbury came to fruition when Mark and Connie Burton’s grey Hellvelyn 2yo filly Mrs Danvers won the spoils in fine style ridden by Luke Morris. This was her third win from three runs in the colours of Turf Club 2014 who lease her.

The Burton’s circulated an e-mail to a number of trainers in the winter asking them if they would take the filly on. Few replied. We did and it was agreed we would train her and then the plan was born. A sales buy back value of £1k ensured she would have the lowest weight of 8st.

Very shortly afterwards over at Lingfield 4yo filly Ickymasho made all to win at Lingfield for owners Messrs Forbes, Losse and Lambourne. This was her third win but first on turf.
