Saturday, October 2, 2004



Today’s attendance of 16,153 is a record for totesport Cambridgeshire day, being a 3% increase on last year (15,674).

Lisa Hancock, managing director of Newmarket Racecourses, said: “It is a modern day record for this day.

“I am sure that Attraction’s appearance in the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes helped swell the crowd, while Greene King’s Sport of Kings promotion brought over 8,000 of their customers today.”

Race One: EBF Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery
Winner’s Quotes:


Johnny Murtagh, in double form here on Friday, carried on where he left off when steering Wedding Party to victory in the opening EBF Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery.

Wedding Party, who looked very strong up the hill and galloped away to beat Love Affair by a length and a quarter, is trained by Amanda Perrett for the Cheveley Park Stud.

Mrs Perrett said: “Wedding Party is tough and the rain-softened ground suited her. This is not an easy time of the year for fillies, but she did the job well.”

Chris Richardson, managing director of the Cheveley Park Stud, had less encouraging news of Chorist, who was scheduled to run in tomorrow’s Prix Dollar at Longchamp.

He said: “Chorist was being loaded on to the plane this morning for what was her first flight when she threw a wobbly and banged her head. It was considered unsafe for her to travel, but luckily we left her in the Emirates Airlines Champion Stakes so she will be re-routed to Newmarket in two weeks’ time.

“However, Chic, who had a slight problem yesterday, is fine again and has been given the green light to run in the Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes here this afternoon.”


There was a sting in the tail for Johnny Murtagh, successful in the opening EBF Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery, when the Irishman was suspended for three days for careless riding, being adjudged to have caused interference to Shosolosa, who finished fifth.

However, Murtagh, who is banned from October 13-15, will be back in time for Champions’ Day here a fortnight today.


After today’s opening race, the following jockeys reported the ground as:

Richard Hughes, rider of Godsend, said: “Good ground.”

Michael Hills, rider of Je Suis Belle, said: “Same as yesterday.”

Kevin Darley, rider of runner-up Love Affair, said: “Good to soft.”

Seb Sanders, rider of Musical Day, said: “On the slow side.”

Frannie Norton, rider of Malinsa Blue, said: “We’re getting well in there anyway.”

Johnny Murtagh, rider of winner Wedding Party, said: “Good to soft - not too bad.”

Nicky Mackay, rider of third-placed Catch A Star, said: “Dried up a lot since yesterday.”

Paul Hanagan, rider of Icing, said: “Just on the slow side.”

Richard Mullen, rider of Aberdovey, said: “Loose and on the slow side.”

Nelson De Souza, rider of Belly Dancer, said: “Good to soft.”

Richard Hills, rider of Toffee Vodka, said: “Slow side of good but drying, a little bit tacky in places.”

Frankie McDonald, rider of Shosolosa, said: “Slow side of good.”

2.35pm Finnforest Oh So Sharp Stakes
Win Quotes


Penkenna Princess gained consolation for finishing third here at Newmarket on September 21 by belying her odds of 25/1 today to score by half a length from Favourita in the Listed Finnforest Oh So Sharp Stakes.

Paul Hanagan gained his first winner here in the process.

Winning trainer Ralph Beckett said: “The way that she worked this week I had to run her here. I am thrilled with the way that it has worked out.

“I was underbidder on her when she went to Willie Brown for 16,000 guineas and then I bought her for 60,000 guineas six months later.

“She has shown loads at home and I couldn’t believe it when she was beaten here last time - I thought she was a real good thing.

“Today has made up for that and I think there could be more improvement to come as she is a May foal. She’s had two quick races but I wouldn’t rule anything out.”

Hanagan commented: “I have finally got my first Newmarket winner - it has taken a long time - I thought I was never going to get off the mark here.

“It is nice surprise though Mr Beckett said that the filly would take all the beating. He was absolutely right.

“I didn’t expect them all to go across to the stands’ rail but it worked out well for me - I am glad I kicked when I did - I half stole it.”

Race Two: Finnforest Oh So Sharp Stakes
Place Quotes


Richard Quinn gave a positive post-race bulletin to trainer Clive Brittain after he failed by only half a length to get Favourita past Penkenna Princess in the Listed Finnforest Oh So Sharp Stakes.

Quinn said: “Favourita did nothing wrong, but the winner got first run on us. I was never going to get through on the rails so had to switch for a run.

“However, she is now a Listed-placed filly, and I think she will do even better next year.”

Brittain had expected a big run from Favourita, the filly having run well to finish fifth to Playful Act in the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster.

He said: “She was flat to the boards all the way but kept on battling all the way to the line.”

Race Three: Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes
Winner’s Quotes


The sustained applause which greeted Attraction after the dual Guineas heroine had bounced back to form to win the Group One Kingdom of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes had trainer Mark Johnston close to tears.

This was Attraction’s fourth Group One triumph, and how she battled up the hill, finding more when Kieren Fallon attacked on Chic to hold on, amidst a crescendo of noise, by a neck.

Told by racecourse chairman Peter Player that, despite the rain-softened going, Attraction had clocked a time only 1.73s outside the course record, Johnston replied: “That is because of the horse, not the ground!”

Johnston, who had agonised all morning whether to let Attraction take her chance, said: “That is the limit of her stamina, and I would have loved to have run her over seven furlongs during the summer or even six.

“Obviously, things got tough in the last furlong, but up until then I thought she was right back to her best and racing like I love to see her - the rest were scrubbing along and all flat to the boards.

“The ground beat her in France, and her other two defeats were inflicted by a fantastic filly in Soviet Song, who deserves to be rated the season’s top miler.

“They are two different types - we run from the front and she comes with one sharp late burst.

“There is no doubt in my mind that Attraction is the best horse that I have trained, and I can’t understand why the official handicappers don’t rate her the number one three-year-old.

“I don’t know what more she has to do to win them over, but it doesn’t really bother me. If they can’t appreciate her, it’s their loss, not mine.

“Attraction will be on her holidays on Monday and will go home to The Duke of Roxburgh’s for a long winter’s rest by the end of the week, but, hopefully, she will come back and race next season.”

Kevin Darley, who immediately made a bee-line for the far rails on leaving the stalls, could not praise Attraction highly enough.

He said: “She is incredible, unbelievable. At half-way she was travelling as well as she has ever done - she switched leads running into the Dip and when Kieren came at me she put her head down and went again.

“The ground was rough on that far rail, but it is definitely faster so we decided to take that route. She dug deep and battled up the hill, and I was not surprised at the reception she got. She deserved it.”

3.15pm Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes
Place Quotes


With racegoers entertained to an epic Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes, it was a pity that there had to be a loser but Chic ended up going down by a neck to Attraction.

Sir Michael Stoute, trainer of Chic, said: “Nearly - she’s very game and the winner is a very admirable, tough filly. Chic put up a very game performance and I’m pleased with her anyway.

“As for plans she’s going home to relax now but she may stay in training as a five-year-old.”

Chris Richardson, managing director of Chic’s owner, the Cheveley Park Stud, added: “She’s run a blinder - she’s tough and game. She had to be pulled off the rail on to ground which is not quite so good but saying that the winner is very good.

“At least we gave her a run for her money.”

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for Khalid Abdulla, owner of third-placed Nebraska Tornado, said: “She wasn’t beaten that far in the end, under two lengths, and stayed on quite well.

“We’ll see about the Breeders’ Cup for her - that’s a possible and then we’ll consider if she stays in training next year.”

Inaugurated in 1966, the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes commemorates King George VI’s great mare Sun Chariot, heroine of the wartime 1000 Guineas, Oaks and St Leger in 1942 when all of the classics were run at Newmarket.

Prior to 1974, the race was confined to three-year-old fillies and was run as a Group Two contest up until this year, when it is upgraded to Group One status.

Generally the contest has been won by fillies just short of the absolute best although there have been some very notable exceptions.

The best winners included Time Charter (1982) who was also successful in the Oaks at Epsom that season and went on to land the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot the following year. Similarly, Cormorant Wood (1983) went on to greater glory, landing the Juddmonte International at York in 1984.

The outstanding grey mare Indian Skimmer was successful in 1988 and won a total of three Group One contests during her career, which included the Champion Stakes at Newmarket later in the month.
By far the most successful trainer is Luca Cumani. The Italian has saddled six winners of the the Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes - Free Guest (1984 and 1985), Infamy (1987), Red Slippers (1992), One So Wonderful (1997) and Kissogram (1998). One So Wonderful and Infamy proved to be the best of his winners, with the former going on to land the Juddmonte International at York the following season while Infamy won the Grade One Rothmans International at Woodbine, Canada in 1988. Similarly the 1989 winner Braiswick went on to top success in Canada, landing the Grade One E P Taylor Stakes at Woodbine.

Several winners have also gone on to significant success as broodmares, most notably 1981 scorer Home On The Range, who produced the 1987 Derby hero Reference Point.

3.55pm totesport Cambridgeshire Heritage Handicap
Win quotes


David Elsworth was not surprised that Spanish Don won the £ 130,000 totesport Cambridgeshire despite the fact that the six-year-old went off at 100/1, the first winner of this historic race to start at this price since Pullover in 1932.

Elsworth said: “Well I never - fancy that! It was a surprise that he went off at 100/1 but not a surprise that he won - he’s a very good horse. He’s won two already this year, he won a few last year and he’s a prolific winner - his form ties in well.

“He was four lengths behind Gatwick last time at Newbury and that one was 9/1 and we were 100/1. I was standing behind Mick Channon [Gatwick’s trainer] and I said to him I’ve got very good odds here! However, a very good price doesn’t make them any quicker!

“I was disappointed with him at Newbury and I really thought that he would win there. However, four lengths is not a lot on loose ground and with a lot of other horses in the way.

“I really thought that he was a Cambridgeshire horse which was mentioned in despatches after he won at Kempton. I took him to York but withdrew him because of the ground and then after Newbury our confidence took a bashing.

“I had a few quid on him today but not as much as at Newbury though.

“This has been great fun and seriously it must be my popularity that made him a 100/1 chance! Even the Racing Post said that he had a chance!

“When he was a three-year-old in France owned by Khalid Abdulla and trained by Andre Fabre he was rated 105. I inherited him on 70 and he’s 95 before this win.

“I don’t know if I’ve trained a 100/1 winner before - I’ve had a 100/1 third in the Emirates Airline Champion Stakes [Indian Creek] and a 100/1 third in the ultimatebet.com 2000 Guineas [Norse Dancer].”

It was the second time he had trained the winner of the totesport Cambridgeshire, having sent out Lear Spear at 20/1 in 1998.

Race Four: totesport Cambridgeshire
Place Quotes


“What do I have to do to win a race?” asked Patrick Chamings after Take A Bow had been beaten a neck by 100-1 shot Spanish Don in the totesport Cambridgeshire.

Chamings, whose last 31 runners have all been beaten, said: “I am in the cold list, yet I have finished second in two big races in successive week-ends, Self Defense at Ascot and now Take A Bow in the totesport Cambridgeshire.

“Our fellow has run a fantastic race for a three-year-old and, remember, we were giving the winner 2lb. He is only a frame of a horse and we will probably put him away now as he has four-year-old written all over him.”

Pedrillo, subject of a monumental gamble, being backed down to 7-2 favourite, trailed in 22nd.

Seb Sanders, who had wasted to get down to 8st 3lb for Pedrillo, said: “I had worked so hard and it is a huge anticlimax. He just never ran his race - it’s disappointing, but that’s racing.”


● The totesport Cambridgeshire was first run in 1839, being won by Lanercost.

● The famous handicap is run over 1m 1f on the Rowley Mile course at Newmarket. It has also been held four times on the July course (1999, 1986, 1941, 1939) while the 1940 Cambridgeshire took place at Nottingham.

● La Fleche won the 1892 Cambridgeshire after success in the 1000 Guineas, Oaks and St Leger that season.

● The 1994 winner Halling, who captured the Cambridgeshire off 8st 8lb, went on to score five times in Group One company, taking in the Eclipse (twice), Juddmonte International (twice) and Prix d’Ispahan.

● Three horses have managed to pull off the “Autumn Double” (totesport Cambridgeshire & totesport Cesarewitch) - Rosebery (1876), Foxhall (1881) and Plaisanterie (1885). The last trainer to win the totesport Cambridgeshire and the totesport Cesarewitch in the same year was Sam Darling in 1925, taking the former with Masked Marvel and the latter with Forseti.

● There have been six dual winners of the race: Hackler’s Pride (1903 & 1904), Christmas Daisy (1909 & 1910), Sterope (1948 & 1949), Prince de Galles (1969 & 1970), Baronet (1978 & 1980) and Rambo’s Hall (1989 & 1992).

● Baronet, trained at Epsom by John Benstead, was something of a Cambridgeshire specialist. In addition to winning the handicap in 1978 and 1980, he was also second in 1977 and 1981.

● Pullover caused the biggest shock ever in the Cambridgeshire when winning at 100/1 in 1932, while the shortest-priced horse to be successful was the 11/10 shot Polymelus in 1906.

● In more recent times, the biggest shocks have come with the 50/1 shots Braughing (1981) and Balthus (1987), while the 2001 hero I Cried For You was returned at 33/1.

● Since the war only seven favourites have been triumphant, the last being the Sir Mark Prescott-trained Pasternak in 1997 who went off at 4/1, landing a huge gamble.

● Among current trainers, the most successful is Jeremy Glover who has sent out the victor on four occasions (Balthus 1987, Rambo’s Hall 1989 & 1992 and Clifton Fox 1996). Sir Mark Prescott is next in line with three winners (Quinlan Terry 1988, Pasternak 1997 and Chivalry 2003).

● Three of Jeremy Glover’s Cambridgeshire heroes were partnered by Dean McKeown, making him and George Duffield (who won on all three of Sir Mark Prescott’s winners) the most successful current jockeys in the contest.

● The highest weight carried to victory in the post-war period was the 9st 10lb shouldered by the Roger Charlton-trained Cap Juluca in 1995.

● On the other hand, Esquire won with the featherweight of 6st 3lb in 1945.

● There have been two dead-heats during the race’s history - Medal & Niantic (1927) and Violetta III & Henry The Seventh (1961).


The totesport Cambridgeshire, run over nine furlongs today ( Saturday, October 2), and the totesport Cesarewitch, double the length at two and a quarter miles on Saturday, October 16, form the totesport Autumn Double.

This year’s £100,000 totesport Autumn Double means that trainers are keener than ever to do well in both races which are among the biggest betting events of the year.

A magnificent £100,000 bonus (£70,000 to the stable staff, £30,000 to the trainer) is on offer to any stable which can win both legs of the 2004 totesport Autumn Double and this is in addition to the tremendous prize money - £130,000 each - for the totesport Cambridgeshire and totesport Cesarewitch.

Sir Mark Prescott tried to land the totesport Autumn Double in 2003, the first year the bonus was offered. After his Chivalry won the totesport Cambridgeshire, the Heath House handler had two runners in the totesport Cambridgeshire, but they could only finish 11th and 18th.

There are five trainers with runners/entries in both handicaps Mick Channon, Michael Jarvis, Jeremy Noseda, Sir Mark Prescott and Mark Tompkins. There were 19 at the entry stage.

totesport, as part of their Autumn Double Bonus, have invited representatives from each yard that entered in both the totesport Cambridgeshire and the totesport Cesarewitch to enjoy a day's racing and hospitality at Newmarket on Saturday. The stable staff from some of the top yards in the country will be hosted by totesport in the Sponsors' Lounge.

Joe Scanlon Managing Director of totesport, said: “The tote recognises the hard work and huge contribution, from so many people that goes on behind the scenes in racing. In celebration of this and in keeping with the £100,000 totesport Autumn Double Bonus, we wanted to entertain the people who work tirelessly within the industry. We hope that they enjoy their day. “

Lisa Hancock Newmarket's Managing Director said: “We are very pleased that the tote are again offering the Autumn Double Bonus that, if won, will be split £30,000 to the trainer and £70,000 to the stable staff. We hope that they enjoy their day's racing at Newmarket this Saturday.”

No winner of the totesport Cambridgeshire has been drawn below 11 since 1992.

Race Five: The Kennett Handicap
Winner & Placed Quotes


Barry Hills has left his betting boots in the cupboard for most of this season, but he brought them out to have a crack at Flamboyant Lad in the Kennett Handicap, and this consistent colt duly obliged at 11-2.

“There is no point in punting if you are not happy with your horses, and they have not been pleasing me, so I’ve barely had a bet,” said Hills.

So why lump on Flamboyant Lad? “The horses have just come right, he is improving and had a nice weight, so I thought I’d go for a little tickle,” replied the Lambourn trainer.

Flamboyant Lad is entered in the Horses-in-Training Sales, but Hills is inclined to advise Sheikh Maktoum Al Maktoum, the colt’s owner-breeder, to take him out.

He explained: “He has size and physique and enough scope to carry on, and he could make a nice horse for next year.”

Richard Hughes, who rode runner-up Corsican Native, told connections: “He needs a mile and a half or a mile and a quarter with a bit of cut in the ground.”

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to Khalid Abdullah, owner of Corsican Native, opined: “That was a good run.”

Sixth race - Suffolk Insulation And Renovation Services EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes

Win quotes


Loyal Love gave Godolphin their 100th win in Britain this season in beating Discuss by two and a half lengths.

Assistant trainer Neil Graham said: “She had the faster ground on the far rail didn’t she? Johnny said it was a bit loose and that she would appreciate quicker ground. She’s got bags of natural speed and a good attitude.

“She’ll go to Dubai for the winter but I’m not sure if she’ll run again this season - we’ll see what the trainer [Saeed bin Suroor] thinks.

“She’s a nice filly who ran well first time out and she may well come on again.”

The winner received a quote of 40/1 for next year’s UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas from Paddy Power.

Sir Michael Stoute, trainer of Discuss, who remains a 25/1 chance with the Irish bookmaker, said: “That was a very, very pleasing debut - she’s a lovely, big scopey filly.”

Richard Hills said of the 7/4 favourite Alhaadh, who finished ninth and was removed from the UltimateBet.com 1000 Guineas betting by Paddy Power having been a 25/1 chance: “She travelled well but got a bit tired - she’s a nice filly and she could well come back and run at the next meeting and win her maiden - she wants further.”

Seventh race - NGK Spark Plugs Handicap
Win Quotes


Sir Mark Prescott was in jovial mood after Quarrymount had run away with today’s concluding handicap to give him some compensation for favourite Pedrillo’s disappointing 22nd in the totesport Cambridgeshire.

“We’re delighted to be here now!” said Prescott as he took his ‘rightful’ position in the winner’s enclosure.

He went on to tell a tale of when he worked for trainer Jack Waugh. “One day a horse broke a leg on the gallops in the morning at Mr Waugh’s. I had to go with a horse to Catterick for a seller which he duly won.

“When I returned home I went up to Mr Waugh and said: “I’m so sorry.” He responded by grabbing my arm and saying: “When you’re a flipping trainer, you’ll know that any winner is a great day!”

He continued: “Quarrymount has done it well and Seb has rushed off to Wolverhampton for the 7.30pm.”

Speaking about Songerie, a two-year-old who represented Prescott in a Group Three in Ireland, he added: “She ran like a drain. Apparently there wasn’t much room and there was a bit of a barging match between my jockey Mr Ahern and another jockey, who exchanged words.

“Mr Ahern was due in to see the stewards after racing so I don’t know much more as he was speaking from behind prison bars!”


Stable staff representing yards which entered horses in both legs of totesport’s Autumn Double, today’s feature race, the totesport Cambridgeshire, and the totesport Cesarewitch at Newmarket on Champions’ Day in two weeks time, are being entertained to a day’s racing and hospitality at the racecourse today.

This is the second year which totesport has offered a magnificent £ 100,000 bonus (£ 70,000 to the stable staff and £ 30,000 to the trainer) to any stable which can win both legs of the 2004 totesport Autumn Double.

There are five trainers with runners/entries in both races - Mick Channon, Michael Jarvis, Jeremy Noseda, Sir Mark Prescott and Mark Tompkins, while there were 19 at the entry stage..

totesport sent out invitations to those 19 to send two stable staff to Newmarket, where they will enjoy a buffet lunch with food and drink all day in the Sponsors’ Lounge. The sponsor is expecting most yards to send representatives and they are looking forward to greeting approximately 20 to 30 stable staff.

Today’s totesport Cambridgeshire has a clear market leader in the Sir Mark Prescott-trained Pedrillo, who was 5/1 this morning with totesport. Last season Prescott landed this prestigious contest courtesy of Chivalry.

Pedrillo is the only horse to have seriously been backed since totesport begun their ante-post market with the Singspiel gelding an original 20/1.

“I would be surprised if the money doesn’t keep coming for Pedrillo, who appears to be a horse who shouldn’t get beaten,” said Paul Petrie, totesport’s PR Executive this morning.

“However totesport are offering each-way 1/4 odds for 1,2,3, 4 AND 5 and punters have been taking advantage of this each-way value with Able Baker Charlie and Everest well-backed each-way.”


Mark Johnston has yet to make a decision as to whether Attraction will run in the Group 1 £ 200,000 Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes today, leaving the final verdict until after the first two races are run.

He walked the eight furlongs of the Rowley Mile at noon with his son Charlie.

The trainer said: “I haven’t come to a conclusion yet as to whether Attraction will run - it is good to soft over the whole course.

“My stick has been going in five inches the whole way and no decision concerning Attraction’s participation will be made until after the first two races are run.”


Following three millimetres of rain overnight, the ground for totesport Cambridgeshire day has been changed to

GOOD - GOOD TO SOFT in places.

Clerk of the course Michael Prosser said: “The ground is now just on the easy side of good and my going stick measures 7.3.

“We have a drying wind and sunshine at the moment. The forecast is for isolated showers this afternoon, and I just hope they miss us.”

Because of the change in ground, Sky Quest has joined Flighty Fellow in being withdrawn from the first leg of the autumn double, leaving 34 runners.


Bookies fear another backlash with Pedrillo in today’s totesport Cambridgeshire, similar to that which hit them so hard with Pasternak, who landed a monumental gamble for the same Sir Mark Prescott stable in this race seven years ago.

Corals were prepared for the stampede for their early morning offer of 11-2, and they were not disappointed, but they soon had to beat a retreat and cut Pedrillo’s odds to 9-2.

Dave Stevens of Corals said: “We saw bits and pieces for Audience at 28-1 and for Ice Palace at 16-1, while Lundy’s Lane, being the Pricewise selection in The Racing Post, was popular from 28-1 to 20-1.

“But all the serious money has been for Pedrillo, and the support has been sustained right through the morning.

“However, our odds compilers have taken the view that we simply have to keep laying Pedrillo at 9-2.

“After all, it is a 33-runner cavalry charge and, while we have the utmost respect for Sir Mark and his record in big handicaps, we are more than happy to take him on at that price.”

Victor Chandler, Ladbrokes and Paddy Power all took a breakfast-time hammering about Pedrillo, with Tony Coleman, representing the last-named firm, declaring: “The moment Sir Mark revealed on this morning’s Morning Line on Channel 4 that he had marked Pedrillo down as his Cambridgeshire horse after he had won his first race as a two-year-old the phones started ringing and, while it is not quite a plunge of Pasternak proportion, it would hurt if Prescott pulled it off again.”

Paddy Power also report money for Lundy’s Lane (20-1 from 25-1) and Zonergem (22-1 from 25-1) for the first leg of the autumn double, while Chandlers have trimmed Vicious Warrior to 40-1 (from 50-1) and Blue Spinnaker to 16-1 (from 20-1).

Most of the morning business surrounded the totesport Cambridgeshire, but Wedding Party has also been a solid order for the opening EBF Jersey Lily Fillies’ Nursery, being shortened to 8-1 from 10-1 with both Paddy Power and Ladbrokes, while Paddy Power, anticipating a big run from the much-heralded newcomers Discuss and Alhaadh in the Suffolk Insulation and Renovation Services EBF Maiden Fillies’ Stakes, have introduced both at 25-1 into their ante-post market for next year’s UtimateBet.com 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket.
