She’s Centimental wins again at Kempton

She has something of an in-and-out profile since her juvenile season, but when she puts it all together on her day Roudee Racing’s She’s Centimental does know how to win!

Yesterday’s return to the winners’ enclosure was her fifth career success, and being very much American-bred it’s probably no surprise that all five have come on the all-weather tracks. She won the last time she’d been to Kempton and was only beaten a length in a 0-85 there prior to that, so she clearly enjoys the test the Sunbury track provides. She could head back there for a race in the middle of April and it’s great to have her back to form for her owners who have been great supporters over the last couple of seasons.

We were delighted to round off the all-weather season by picking up some of the AW bonus scheme Horse Of The Year prize money with Goldsmith finishing in 20th place. The horse has a ton of ability and when races fall anything like well for him – and often when they don’t! – he’s always thereabouts, and his consistency and constitution were rewarded with a £10,000 share of the prize. His owners target these sort of prizes extremely well and we’re very pleased we could combine to this effect. 

We’ve had a busy enough start to the season with our two-year-olds this year without hitting the board just yet, but there has been plenty of encouragement that the first winner is not far away. Atherstone Warrior ran a good race on the testing ground in the Brocklesby. He showed a very good attitude there when it would’ve been pretty easy to drop out having been prominent in the conditions and hopefully he’ll be finding something in the next couple of weeks. The fillies Kuwaitya and Awj are different models to him, both much more naturally speedy, and Awj in particular travelled eye-catchingly well on her Southwell debut. She may now head to France for one of their 900 metre races and she’ll take to soft ground very well.
