What a pity Gael and Dennis Evans were unable to be at Borrowdale Park on Sunday to see their home bred colt, Wantage, carry 60 kgs and win the 1600m Guineas Trial by three lengths.
The son of Ato out of the Tamburlaine (IRE) mare, Angora, is owned by Newbury Racing (Pty) Ltd and has now won three and placed six times from 10 starts.
Trained by Bridget Stidolph, Wantage was ridden by Mathew Thackeray. Tree Of Wisdom, Lil Miss Gee and Donegal Glen filled the minor places.
Congratulations to the winning connections.
