WINNING QUOTES FIRST RACE
CURTIS MEDICAL RATED STAKES
MAYBE THE
WOKINGHAM AGAIN
FOR THE DOCTOR



"He had the form to win the race, his fourth in last year's Wokingham was very solid and he chipped a knee when he ran at Newbury after that, so there was an excuse for him then," said Fulke Johnson Houghton after John Reid had brought Doctor Spin home as the two lengths winner from favourite Sheer Viking.


The winner got very warm in the paddock and down at the start, but the trainer was not concerned about the way in which the horse looked like an advertisement for Omo.

"He always does that, he is a very heavy sweater even at home and I would have been worried if he had not sweated," the trainer added.


"He is in the Wokingham again but whether he runs in that will depend on what happens with ‘im wot duz the weights'; if he gets put up too much I may run him in the Cork and Orrery; I have put him in that race with that in mind.


"I think that his tendency to sweat comes from the Vaigly Great in him (sire of the winner's dam), he was inclined to get very warm, but there is nothing bad about him and he has always been a very genuine horse.






WINNING QUOTES SECOND RACE
MAIL ON SUNDAY MILE HANDICAP

MUCH TRAVELLED
MOSSE ON THE MARK



Gerald Mosse, who was riding in New York last night and came to Newmarket primarily to partner Chez Cherie in the Sagitta 1,000 Guineas, picked up a spare ride on Atavus and turned the colt into a 20-1 winner.


The horse in America was disappointing - "New York was less good than this," said Mosse with elegant understatement as he went to weigh in.


"This horse was good, I was always happy with him and when I asked him to improve he did so readily; the more I kept asking him the more he was able to find.


Atavus was in front entering the final furlong and held on well to beat Red n'Socks by a neck with Moon Solitaire, who led the batch who raced on the stands side, two lengths back in third.


The winner is one of three horses who race for the Stableside Racing Partnership, which is run by David Lancaster-Smith. Of their trio, two, including Atavus, are with William Muir and they also have one with George Margarson.


"We and William have been lucky together," said Lancaster-Smith. "We have owned his first two-year-old winner for each of the last two years and now we have combined for his first grass winner of the season."




WINNING QUOTES THIRD RACE
R L DAVISON PRETTY POLLY STAKES
MELIKAH GOES INTO
THE OAKS PICTURE



The debutante Melikah came from last to first to gain a narrow win but in spite of the fact that she beat Clog Dance by only a head, Godolphin's Simon Crisford was very happy with the filly's performance.


"They went no gallop and the race turned into a sprint, which was no good to her as she is bred to want a mile and a half plus," said Crisford about the winning filly, who is by one Arc winner, Lammtarra, out of another, Urban Sea,

"What we hope now is that she can live up to her pedigree; she is in the Oaks picture now but we have some other fillies as well for that and we shall know more in a couple of weeks' time," Crisford added.


"Frankie (Dettori) liked her a lot and said that she could be an Oaks filly," Crisford added. "But the early pace was so slow that it was really a farce of a race. She will look much better in a race run at a proper gallop."

Crisford also had news of China Visit, who finished sixth in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday night. "He has run a huge race but he just did not get the trip. We shall have to talk to Sheikh Maktoum but it could be that he will come back here and run in the St James's Palace Stakes," he said.


Curule, the other Goldophin Kentucky Derby runner who finished seventh, will go for America's Belmont Stakes, along with
stable companion Chief Seattle.




WINNING QUOTES FOURTH RACE
SAGITTA 1,000 GUINEAS

JOHN GOSDEN ABOUT LAHAN


"This was a real team effort and we have all had to come through the most dreadful winter," said John Gosden after Lahan had given him his first success in a Newmarket classic.


Lahan came here after a very disappointing run in the Fred Darling at Newbury, where her trainer is adamant that the ground was too soft for her, but even so he had hoped for better things.


"I was very depressed when I left Newbury that afternoon and she had finished only fourth, but my daughter Serena was in the car with me and she said that I was not to worry, it was only a horse race.


"But I was glad Lahan was able to run at Newbury. We had such a dreadful April with 12 inches of rain and we missed four work days and two race meetings were abandoned. The ground at Newbury was dreadful, but at least Lahan had had the benefit of having the run and going down the road to the races. That was a good thing for her.


"It has been a big test this winter moving to Manton - maybe I have some sort of an 11-year itch as I trained in California for 11 years and then had another 11 years here at Newmarket.

"I like new challenges which is why I went to Manton and the Sangster team have been marvellous to work for. It has been quite an effort for all of us getting to know each other, but it has gone very well.


"I was very worried in the early stages of the race that she would not be able to get cover, it looked desperate at one stage, but then she was able to get covered and settled well.


"I do not think that she is an Oaks filly and my feeling would be to run her next in the Coronation Stakes at Ascot; the Prix de Diane could be a possibility but I shall have to talk to Sheikh Hamdan and see what he thinks is the race to go for," Gosden added.


"I was not worried about her getting the mile," said the trainer. "She stayed seven furlongs well when she won the Rockfel and I am sure it was the ground and not the trip when she was beaten at Newbury."

After Lahan had won last season's Rockfel Stakes on the July course, Gosden said that he hoped he would be able to continue training the filly this year and that she would not be snapped up by Godolphin. Owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum, who also bred the winner, kept Lahan with Gosden and he and Richard Hills were enjoying their second 1,000 Guineas triumph following Harayir in 1995.





WINNING QUOTES FOURTH RACE
SAGITTA 1000 GUINEAS

RICHARD HILLS ON LAHAN



"She was very keen early and I knew that I had to get her covered and settled," said the winning jockey, whose second 1,000 triumph this was.

He won for the same owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum on Harayir in 1995 - the first Sunday classic run in England.


"But I was happy enough with her by halfway, which was good as I was then able to give her a breather. I had to do that so that I could conserve her speed for the finish.


"The gaps came just when I wanted them; she was always going very well and happily once I had got her settled and she quickened up really well.


"I would think that she is more likely to be a miler rather than an Oaks filly; even though she is by Unfuwain he had sired plenty of winners who have shown a lot of speed and her dam was very fast."




FOURTH RACE PLACED QUOTES
THE SAGITTA 1000 GUINEAS

ELLEN NARROWLY FAILS TO BRING OFF 66/1 SHOCK



The 66/1 chance Princess Ellen, who Gerard Butler inherited from Peter Chapple-Hyam this season, came with a late rattle to lose out by a length and a quarter to Lahan in the Sagitta 1000 Guineas.


"My heart is in my mouth," said Butler. "But I am not that surprised after how the colt (Compton Bolter) ran yesterday to finish fifth (in the Sagitta 2000 Guineas). She has been doing it very nicely at home and you always dream that they will do well on the course. But work in the morning and racing in the afternoon are two different things.


"Lahan got first run on her today which didn't help her. We'll head to Ireland now and maybe easier ground will help her there."

Jockey Kevin Darley added: "She ran a tremendous race and travelled well throughout although I got a little stuck behind going into the dip. She's a filly that likes to use herself and once she got out she showed really good pace. Gerard Butler has done a great job with her since getting her from Peter Chapple-Hyam."

Petrushka, the 5/4 favourite, finished third, beaten just over four lengths. Her trainer Sir Michael Stoute, said: "She's run creditably although we had hoped for a bit better. The way she ran today, she looked like she'd need further. I'm happy but not ecstatic."

Harry Herbert, who manages the filly's owners, Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, added: "We didn't see the same filly today as we did in the Nell Gwyn, for whatever reason. But she's game and stayed on, even if she was squeezed up a couple of times. It's still thrilling to finish third in the Guineas. It certainly looked today as if the Oaks would be a natural progression."

Kieren Fallon, who partnered Petrushka, added: "She handled the ground pretty well. She was game and stayed on even though we got squeezed up a couple of times."

Mick Channon felt that fourth-placed Seazun would have performed even better if she had been covered up. "I'm thrilled with the filly," the trainer said. "But unfortunately John (Reid) couldn't get any cover, which she needs, and she just had to go straight on her own."





FOURTH RACE QUOTES
SAGITTA 1000 GUINEAS
BEATEN HORSES



Richard Quinn, rider of the Henry Cecil-trained fifth High Walden, said: "She has run a smashing race first time up. Coming into the dip, the others quickened up and she stayed on. She'll get a bit further and the race will sharpen her up."


The Godolphin runner Bintalreef performed very disappointingly, finishing last..


Her jockey Frankie Dettori said: "I think the first step (out of the stalls) she definitely pulled something as she dipped down. When I tried to move up to challenge, something was clearly wrong.


"I think something will emerge soon. It was very disappointing because we really fancied our chances."




LADBROKES REACTION



Ladbrokes pushed the Sagitta 1000 Guineas third Petrushka out to 8/1 from 4/1 for the Vodafone Oaks, having Love Divine and Teggiano at the same price, with Embraced 14/1, Meilikah, Kalypso Katie and Interlude 16/1 and 20/1 bar.

Petrushka (IRE)
An IR110,000 guineas (a guinea = 1.05) John Warren purchase at the 1998 Goffs Orby Sale, Petrushka became the most expensive yearling ever bought by Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, although her price has since been surpassed by a 155,000gns Bering colt last October.

Petrushka, who is out of a half-sister to the Irish 2,000 Guineas and Dubai Champion Stakes winner Spectrum, ran once as a two-year-old, beating 18 rivals in a seven-furlong Leicester maiden on October 11.

She jumped to the front of the betting for both the Sagitta 1000 Guineas and Vodafone Oaks following her Newmarket outing this season, when running away with the Group 3 Shadwell Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes, with Seazun four lengths behind in second.

Race Record: Starts: 2; 1st: 2; 2nd: 0; 3rd: 0; Win Prize Money: 24,085

The Library Syndicate of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Ltd
The Library Ownership Syndicate, organised by Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Ltd, came into existence in late 1998 following the purchase of four yearlings by John Warren. Petrushka and Defiant are trained by Sir Michael Stoute, while Astronaut is with William Haggas and Pompeii, who won a Warwick handicap on Monday, May 1, after taking his maiden at Leicester in April, is handled by Paul Cole.
Highclere issued 20 shares at 22,000 each to cover the purchase costs, plus training and other charges, in the first and second years, 1999 and 2000. The owners include David Mort, who started out as a docker and built up a plant hire business in Wales, Michael Brower, who co-founded Garfunkels restaurants, and Lord Hambleden.

Mort and his wife Dorothy are long-standing racing enthusiasts and previously owned horses like Varingo, who won the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot in 1979, and Montendre, who is still in training at the age of 13. Michael Brower and Lord Hambleden have been involved in Highclere Thoroughbred Racing syndicates from the beginning in 1993 and owned shares in the two best Highclere horses to date, Lake Coniston and Tamarisk.

Sir Michael Stoute
Born in Barbados on October 22, 1945, where his father was chief of police, Michael Stoute came to Britain in 1965 to nurture his love of racing. He joined Pat Rohan at Malton before moving to Newmarket three years later to work for Doug Smith and then Tom Jones. Stoute took out a public licence to train in 1972, recording his first success that year when Sandal won at Newmarket on April 28. Since then he has been at the top of his profession and has been champion trainer five times - in 1981, 1986, 1989, 1994 and, most recently, in 1997 when his two older horses Singspiel and Pilsudski proved great ambassadors for the yard. Pilsudski added four Group One races to his impressive portfolio - the Coral-Eclipse, the Irish Champion Stakes, the Dubai Champion Stakes and the Japan Cup, while Singspiel won the Dubai World Cup, the Vodafone Coronation Cup and the Juddmonte International.
Stoute, who has won the Vodafone Derby twice - with Shergar in 1981 and Shahrastani five years later - has landed the 1,000 Guineas once before, with Musical Bliss in 1989. His long list of big-race successes also includes the 2,000 Guineas (four times), King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes (twice), Vodafone Oaks, the Irish Derby (three times), Irish Oaks (five times), Irish 1,000 Guineas and Irish 2,000 Guineas (three times) as well as many other races across the globe. Stoute, who was knighted in 1998 for his services to sport and tourism in Barbados, has 190 horses in training this year at his Freemason Lodge yard in Newmarket. Champion jockey Kieren Fallon became the stable's retained rider this season and they marked their new association when King's Best won the Sagitta 2,000 Guineas yesterday.

Previous Sagitta 1000 Guineas Win: 1989 Musical Bliss

Kieren Fallon
Born on February 22, 1965, in County Clare, Ireland, Kieren Fallon joined Kevin Prendergast's yard as an apprentice in 1983. His first winner came on board Piccadilly Lord at Navan on June 18, 1984. Moved from Ireland to ride for Jimmy FitzGerald's Malton stable from 1989 until 1991 and then spent three years with Lynda Ramsden's yard from 1993 until the end of 1996. At the start of the 1997 Flat season, Fallon took up a surprise appointment as stable jockey to the Henry Cecil yard and promptly fulfilled the weight of expectation laid on his shoulders when winning the Sagitta 1000 Guineas on Sleepytime and Vodafone Oaks on Reams Of Verse. He ceased riding for Cecil last August and has been first rider to Sir Michael Stoute since the start of the 2000 season. The new partnership has made an excellent start with the victory of King's Best in yesterday's Sagitta 2000 Guineas.

Fallon has been champion jockey for the past three seasons, riding a double century on each occasion - 202 wins in 1997, 204 in 1998 and 202 last season, when he also won three of the five classics - the Sagitta 1000 Guineas on Wince, the Vodafone Oaks on Ramruma and the Vodafone Derby on Oath, his first success in the premier classic.

Previous Sagitta 1000 Guineas Wins: 1997 Sleepytime, 1999 Wince.





GUINEAS DOUBLE TEAMS



If Petrushka wins the Sagitta 1000 Guineas at Newmarket today her trainer and jockey team of Sir Michael Stoute and Kieren Fallon will be the first combination to pull off the Guineas double for 33 years. That was back in 1967 when Fleet and Royal Palace won for Noel Murless and the Australian George Moore, who was the retained rider at Warren Place for that season.


The last jockey to land the double on his own is Lester Piggott, who replaced the unwell Duncan Keith on Humble Duty in the 1,000 Guineas when that grey filly won by seven lengths in 1970, and rode Nijinsky to the Triple Crown victories in that same season.


Henry Cecil and Kieren Fallon just missed out on the double last season when Wince won the Sagitta 1000 Guineas, the day after Enrique had finished second in the Sagitta 2000 Guineas.


Aidan O'Brien and Michael Kinane also came close to the double two years ago when King of Kings won the Sagitta 2000 Guineas but Shahtoush, who went on to land the Vodafone Oaks at Epsom, had to give best to Cape Verdi in the 1000.


Sir Michael Stoute and Walter Swinburn had a similar frustrating experience in 1988 when Doyoun won the 2,000 but Dabaweyaa found Ravinella too good in the fillies' classic.




BETTING
NEWS AT 1 PM



Although the Godolphin horses have not made a flying start in England over the last two days, there is a clear impression from the major bookmakers' offices that they may have a good afternoon, with Melikah the subject of very good support in the RL Davison Pretty Polly Stakes (3.05pm).


The filly, who is by one Arc winner, Lammtarra out of another, Urban Sea, has been well supported at 10-11 with Ladbrokes and is in from 11-8 to 11-10 with William Hill. That firm also report sound money for Bintalreef in the Sagitta 1,000 Guineas (3.45pm), though she remains at 100-30 with them.


Ladbrokes say that the Sagitta 1,000 Guineas has been a quiet race so far as they are concerned, though there has been interest in the hot favourite Petrushka, Bintalreef, Seazun and Aunty Rose. Their prices, though have not changed.


The Rayners Lane firm have had money in the opening Curtis Medical Handicap (2pm) for Delegate and Sheer Viking, and in the Mail on Sunday Handicap (2.30pm) they have shortened Sutton Common from 20-1 to 14-1, as well as laying Kathir and All The Gears. Naval Affair has also been popular with them for the Pretty Polly.


Chandlers is another firm to have laid Sutton Common, who is now a 10-1 shot (from 14) with them, and they have had support in the same race for Moon Solitaire, who is in two points from the morning 16-1.


They have trimmed Ho Leng in the opener from 9-1 to 7-1, and Petrushka is in from 6-4 to 6-5 for the Sagitta 1,000 Guineas.


The Tote has also had money for Moon Solitaire and Kathir, who are both in from 16-1 to 10-1.
