GLORIOUS GOODWOOD 2003
RACENEWS RACECOURSE SERVICE
SECOND DAY, WEDNESDAY, JULY 30
PREVIEW OF TOMORROW’S LADY O GOODWOOD CUP
Last year’s winner Jardines Lookout heads a field of ten for the Lady O Goodwood Cup, the feature event on the third day of the Glorious Goodwood meeting tomorrow. Though he has not quite refound that form in his two ventures this year, he ran encouragingly when fourth to Mr Dinos in the Gold Cup at Ascot last month and is clearly far from a back number.
If, though, he is to repeat last year’s success, Jardines Lookout will have to reverse Royal Ascot form with Persian Punch, who was written off by some after being well beaten here last year but has rammed that theory very much down its proposers’ throats.
He showed excellent form in the later weeks of last year and, though decisively beaten by Mr Dinos when he was second in the Gold Cup, he left no doubt that he is still a force to be reckoned with. His exploits have rightly made him hugely popular among racing fans and he can be guaranteed a magnificent reception should he win.
Boreas had some fine efforts to his name last season, including a defeat of Persian Punch in the Doncaster Cup. He could not quite run to that mark when the pair were fourth and fifth to Mr Dinos in the Henry 11 Stakes at Sandown in May, but it would be premature to write him off just yet.
As well as Persian Punch, David Elsworth will also saddle Gulf, though the pair are in different ownership with Persian Punch belonging to Jeff Smith and Gulf carrying the colours of Raymond Tooth. Gulf ran well last time when trying to give 18lb to course specialist Mana Dargent at Ascot and looks like a horse on the upgrade.
The Dubai-trained Kayseri won a race in Dubai in April and ran respectably when fifth at York last time, though he may need to improve a bit on that to play a leading role here.
Mark Johnston, whose name is irrevocably associated with the wonderful Double Trigger, the only horse to win the Goodwood Cup three times, is to be represented by Zindabad, who has spent many a day plying his trade in top company all over the world and has been well rewarded for his efforts. Some of his recent shows have not perhaps seen him at his best and he would probably prefer drier ground.
Savannah Bay, controversially awarded a race at Ascot in April which was later taken away from him, ran well in the Gold Cup; Sentinel did very well to beat all but Unleash in the Northumberland Plate last time but is stepping up in grade here, and though Swing Wing was ahead of Persian Punch when they were fourth and fifth at Newbury in May, he may not confirm that form over this longer trip and at these weights.
Today’s crowd at Goodwood was 19,342, up 1,147 or 6 per cent on last year’s figure.
Rod Fabricius, Goodwood’s General Manager and Clerk of the Course, reflected: “We had a fairytale result for Pat Eddery in what will be his last Glorious Goodwood Festival Meeting to ride yet another Group 1 winner.
“A close second was Mark Johnston’s century of winners for the season reached as part of a double.”
Yesterday’s crowd was 13,511, down 705 or five per cent on the 2002. “We’d attribute that to the weather as the losses were largely in the Public Enclosure,” added Fabricius.
WINNING QUOTES RACE ONE
MARRIOTT HOTELS GOODWOOD STAKES
JOHNSTON HITS THE HUNDRED
.Mark Johnston sent out his 100th domestic winner of the year - there have also been three overseas - when Knavesmire Omen made all the runnning to take Goodwood’s longest race of the season by six lengths from Positive Profile.
As well as being his century, this was also the tenth consecutive year in which Johnston has reached three figures, an achievement which no other trainer, even including such stars as Sir Michael Stoute and Henry Cecil, can equal.
“I don’t know if it is our fastest hundred, but it is certainly faster than last year when we did not do it until Bandari won the Voltigeur at York,” said Johnston, who looked back to the time when he first reached the century in 1994. “I wondered at one time if those days might have been more impressive on a strike rate/percentage basis, but as far as I can see this has been our best year in that respect,” he said.
Johnston was keen to pay tribute to the way in which Darryll Holland rode the winner. “Darryll is a marvellous tactical jockey,” he said. “The easier ground certainly helped Knavesmire Omen, but Darryll knew exactly how fast to go and at what stage.”
The jockey, having his 50th Goodwood success, repaid the compliment by saying that “Mark’s horses certainly keep going. I gave him a break at the top of the hill, and really he was going to win from some way out.”
Knavesmire Omen, bought back last autumn by half of the 12-strong syndicate who used to own him, is a possible though at the moment no more than that, for next month’s Tote Ebor at York in which a 7lb penalty will bring his weight up to 9st.
Prices about him for York vary from the 28-1 of Paddy Power via the 25-1 of the sponsors and the 20-1 from Coral and Ladbrokes to the cautious 16-1 from Victor Chandler.
JOCKEYS ON THE GROUND
After the first race, Mick Kinane described the ground as “good to soft”, David Kinsella said “it’s a bit sticky out there”, Pat Eddery called the ground “soft”, Richard Quinn commented “it’s pretty slow - it’s soft”, Jamie Spencer said “it’s tacky enough” while Seb Sanders said “it’s on the soft side.”
SECOND RACE WINNING QUOTES
THE VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE STAKES
STORY CONTINUES JOHNSTON TWO-YEAR-OLD LUCK
Lucky Story was quoted as short as 25/1 with Paddy Power for next year’s 2,000 Guineas following his length and a quarter success from The Mighty Tiger in the Group 2 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.
“He’s still a bit green and laid-back, he wandered and found a bit more,” said the winning trainer Mark Johnston. “He threw away his first race and has never had a proper battle since. I still think there’s more to come.
“I’ve said all week that he’s the best I’ve had since Mister Baileys and this horse is certainly built, bred and got the form for the Guineas.
“Early on I was sure that he was the best we had then he got beaten in a gallop by Russian Valour, who has gone on to win the Norfolk.
“He’s certainly a Group 1 horse from now on and (owner’s racing manager) Joe Mercer mentioned the Dewhurst and Racing Post Trophy.
“I’ve never been remotely in this position before with my two-year-olds, not even bringing Pearl Of Love, Russian Valour and Attraction to Goodwood.”
Jockey Keith Dalgleish added: “He’s still backward and a big baby but he’s a lovely horse. Of all the years I’ve been involved in the yard, this is easily the best set of two-year-olds we have had.
“He’s just done enough to win and is still very green.”
PLACED QUOTES RACE TWO
VEUVE CLICQUOT VINTAGE STAKES
O’BRIEN CONTENT WITH PLACED HORSES
Aidan O’Brien was very satisfied with the displays by his team of The Mighty Tiger and Devil Moon, who filled the places behind successful hot favourite Lucky Story in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.
“I was very pleased with them both, especially as this was the first time that either of them has raced round a bend,” he said.
“The Mighty Tiger looked as if he could make a race of it with the winner going to the last furlong, but Mick (Kinane) said that he had been very green going round the bend into the straight.
“He kept on well, though, and although Devil Moon was a 100-1 chance he did not surprise us. He has always been a horse that we have liked and he has been going well.
“But having said that, the winner does look like a very good horse.”
WINNING QUOTES RACE THREE
REEL BUDDY FROM LAST TO FIRST
Reel Buddy, starting at 20-1, came from last to first to win a brilliantly exciting Sussex Stakes in a driving finish in which the first five were separated by barely half a length as he got home from Statue of Liberty, Norse Dancer, Zafeen and Moon Ballad.
But for all the merit of his achievement, the real star of the show was his rider Pat Eddery, now in the closing months of his career as a jockey after a 30-plus year career which has yielded him 11 championships.
And the occasion was not lost on his fellow riders, as they came out in force to cheer him as he rode Reel Buddy back to the unsaddling enclosure. One of them, possibly Jimmy Quinn, had the nerve to call out ‘well done, grandad ’, but Eddery showed no sign of taking offence at such impertinence.
“It’s great to ride a Group 1 winner in my final season,” he said. “Some people may have felt that I would retire if I rode another Group 1 winner, but I certainly shant’t be packing up at once. I enjoy it too much and I shall certainly go on for a bit longer, though overall the time has come to call it a day.”
Speaking of Reel Buddy, Eddery said: “He’s a funny old horse and you mustn’t get at him. If you get at him he can stop on you, so all you can do is squeeze him up, and he has run on really well today.”
Richard Hannon junior, whose father trains the winner but was unable to be at Goodwood, explained the absence. “Dad has hurt his back but he will have been watching at home and no doubt riding a finish. It will be kill or cure as far as his back was concerned.”
Hannon also revealed that if his father had had his way Reel Buddy would have run in the Listed Vodafone Thorougbred Stakes here on Saturday, but owner Bill Jones, who races under the banner of the Speedlith Group, wanted to take his chance today.
“I suppose you could say that we would have owed him £128,000 (winning owner’s prize money) if he hadn’t run,” he said.
“He’s a funny horse and, though he has never won anything bet
ter than a Group III before now, he was always the sort who just might do something like this. You couldn’t really fancy him, but even so I backed him!”
Pat Eddery, riding his sixth Sussex Stakes winner on Reel Buddy, said: “I am going to ride to the end of the season. That was just the icing on the cake - great. Reel Buddy gave me a lovely ride throughout the race - he picked up well for me - it was very exciting.
“They were going a pretty good gallop - motoring along. Luckily enough they got to the furlong marker and they were all stopping - my little fellow had something in reserve.
“To win any Group 1 is just fantastic - it is just lovely to do it in my last year. The horse has always threatened to come up with a good one and today he did.
“My fellow just kept running on and staying on - when I got to the front I was just a bit worried that he would take it easy because you cannot give him a smack - he will pull up with you - I just squeezed him and he got home.
“He thought he had the race won because he went half a length up and eased down on me. I have still got to ride for Mr Dunlop and I will ride until the end of the season for him.
“Each Group 1 is just great and that was fantastic. I am just so pleased that Richard (Hannon) gave me the ride. I have ridden Reel Buddy the last twice and today he has come up with the goods.
“When you ride good ones like that, it is great, but they don’t come up every day. I will definitely retire at the end of the season. I am looking forward to my new venture, the Pat Eddery Racing Syndicate, and I cannot do that and ride.
“Goodwood has been a very lucky track for me - I have ridden a lot of winners here. It is quite funny, down at the start, I knew I had ridden five Sussex Stakes winners and needed one more to equal Lester Piggott’s total and I said I don’t think it will happen today!
“I thought he would be placed because he ran a great race last year - obviously the ground and the pace helped him. This big Goodwood meeting is always fantastic - one of the best.
“It is great that the jocks came out - really good.”
THIRD RACE PLACED QUOTES
THE SUSSEX STAKES
LIBERTY BACK TO FORM
Statue Of Liberty, who was well-backed for the Sussex Stakes throughout the day, nearly justified the support when losing out by a head to Reel Buddy in the Group 1 event.
“He had no luck in the race but was really coming home,” said the second’s trainer Aidan O’Brien. “He was by far our best two-year-old last year then was off for 11 months before Ascot, he had a little setback in the spring and I didn’t really have time to prepare him fully.
“He ran much better today and is in all the good mile races.”
David Elsworth, trainer of third-placed Norse Dancer, said: “We were in front but not where it mattered. He has an abundance of ability and in hindsight Richard (Quinn) would have probably come a bit later. We will have an alternative plan next time.
“He’s in the Juddmonte International and a Group 3 at Deauville but if we decide to go for a Group 1 next I think we’ll go to York.”
Mick Channon was satisfied with the efforts of St James’s Palace Stakes winner Zafeen to come fourth. “He’s run a cracker again but would have preferred a bit better ground,” said the trainer. “He’s run his race and we’ll take our time with him, he’s still got everything to play for.”
The 9/4 favourite Trade Fair finished sixth and his trainer Roger Charlton said: “He’s run well to a furlong and a half out then he got a bit squeezed and the ground probably didn’t suit.”
FOURTH RACE QUOTES
THE TOTE GOLD TROPHY
SWEDISH DREAMS FOR REFUGE
The Swedish Derby on August 10 is the target for the Sir Mark Prescott-trained No Refuge after he justified strong market support to land the Tote Gold Trophy under Seb Sanders.
“They went very quick, they went so fast that I just took my time but probably got there too soon,” said Sanders. “He’s still improving and is very laidback - when he won for the first time at Wolverhampton it was probably the hardest ride of my life.”
Wally Sturt, who owns the winner in partnership, added: “Sir Mark has taken the stable staff to a buffet lunch organised by one of his owners so he has left us in charge. He likes to go to these things to check up on the staff!
“He’s gone up the weights a lot and about a month ago we decided to go for the Swedish Derby on August 10, where we could pick up £71,000 if he wins.”
After Santando had beaten all but No Refuge in the Tote Gold Trophy, trainer Clive Brittain said: “He has run very well and the idea now is to run him in the Ebor.”
The colt is quoted at 20/1 (from 25/1) by Ladbrokes for the big York handicap and Brittain feels that the track and the longer distance will suit him well.
“He’s a very lazy horse and a hard ride - it has taken all Kieren Fallon’s strength to win on him and when he couldn’t ride today we wanted to give him every help we could which is why we put the visor on.
“We have tried him in cheekpieces but they didn’t have any effect and he worked well at home in a visor when we tried it.”
Santando has 7st 11lb in the Ebor and has also been entered for the St Leger. “You know me, never leave any stone unturned,” added the trainer.
Barry Hills was very pleased with the effort by Trust Rule, who came from a long way back to finish third at his first attempt over this distance.
“We had to hold him up to help him get the trip and he didn’t come down the hill too well,” he added.
WINNING QUOTES RACE FIVE
WEATHERBYS BANK FILLIES’ RATED STAKES
THE VISOR HAS MADE THE DIFFERENCE
“She is an improving filly and putting the visor on her has made all the difference,” said Michael Bell after Hoh Buzzard had made all the running to take the Weatherbys Bank Fillies’ Rated Stakes by three lengths from Opera Glass.
“Kieren (Fallon) advised us to put the visor on when he rode her three races ago and it has certainly done the trick.
“She doesn’t have to make the running like she did here, but she did so when she won at Newmarket and Kieren said that there was no pace on here so she might as well do so again.
“We have targeted this race since she won at Newmarket -- it was the obvious race to go for --, and now we shall move her up in class and try for a Listed race. There is one at Ascot which might suit her.”
Bell added that Nevisian Lad, who finished last in the Veuve Clicquiot Vintage Stakes, could not cope with the soft ground.
“He is clearly a six furlong horse who wants it firm,” he said. “When I walked the course this morning it was undoubtedly soft in the straight and he did not like it, but you never know until you try and now we know where we are with him.”
Johnny Murtagh was fined £130 for not arriving to ride Castleton in the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes and for giving no explanation to the stewards.
Keith Dalgleish was suspended for two days (August 8 and 9) for using his whip with excessive force on Lucky Story, winner of the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes.
SIXTH RACE QUOTES
THE FINDON MAIDEN FILLIES’ STAKES
HILLS FORECASTS BRIGHT FUTURE WITH TAROT CARDS
Prince Khalid Abdulla was on hand to watch his home-bred juvenile Tarot Card make a winning debut when landing the Findon Maiden Fillies’ Stakes by half a length from Dunloskin.
“I don’t think the track suited and she was a bit green to start with but is quite a nice animal,” said the winning trainer Barry Hills. “We’ll step her up to seven furlongs next and she’ll get a mile.”
Hills is considering the Group 3 Britannia Rescue Prestige Stakes, which he won last year with Geminiani, at Goodwood on Sunday, August 24, as a possible next step.
“We’d maybe bring her back here for that race, it’s the sort of thing you’d be aiming at.”
Michael Jarvis was very satisfied with the debut effort by runner-up Dunloskin, the only one of the six fillies to have been entered for York’s Lowther Stakes.
“She is a fine big filly with a bit of size about her,” he said. “It looked as if she might win a furlong and a half out, but then she started pricking her ears and looking about her, as they so often do due to inexperience.”
WINNING QUOTES RACE SEVEN
FIRST STRIKE FOR CARROLL
Former jump jockey Tony Carroll, who now trains a mixed string of about 40 horses near Alcester in Warwickshire, sent out his first winner at the course when 9-2 favourite Cerulean Rose completed a hat trick to take the closing Zuhair Handicap.
And he left no doubt about how much the success meant to him and his team. “It is wonderful for a little stable like ours to have a winner at a big meeting like this,” he said.
“The filly used to have a wind problem but an operation has sorted that out, and though she came here with a penalty from her win at Chepstow last week, we felt that she had a decent chance from her handicap mark.
“I tried her once over hurdles last season when she ran in a juvenile hurdle at Newbury, but not surprisingly she didn’t get the trip.”
Zuhair’s attempt to win the race for the fifth year in a row ended in disappointemnt as the ten-year-old could never get close enough to mount
a serious challenge and finished eighth.
His rider Alex Greaves said: “the old boy has run really well considering that he needs ground like the M25. He loves Goodwood and really deserved to have a race named after him, but whether we’ll be back next year I don’t know.”
Her husband, the horse’s trainer Dandy Nicholls, felt that another return remains a possibility. “We could be back next season and he would certainly have liked the ground to be faster,” he said. “He was keeping on at the end but he is ten years old now and it can’t get any easier for him.”

ZUHAIR BIDS FOR GOODWOOD FIVE IN A ROW
The ten-year-old Zuhair is bidding for a remarkable five-timer when he runs in the race named after him, the Zuhair Handicap, today at 5.35pm. He has made the race his own in the last four seasons and the Goodwood executive feel that such an achievement deserved special recognition as the highspot of a career which has seen him win ten of 103 starts and earn £127,631.
His bandwagon in the race which until this year has been known as the Charlton Handicap began in 1999 when he was ridden by Kieren Fallon and won by a neck. And two days later he came out under his penalty in the Stewards’ Sprint Handicap (the consolation race for those who do not make the cut in the Vodafone Stewards’ Cup), this time ridden by Alex Greaves, the wife of his trainer Dandy Nicholls, and won by a head.
Alex Greaves has partnered Zuhair to all his three subsequent wins in what has become ‘his’ race. They won by a length and a quarter in 2000, by half a length in 2001 and by a length and a quarter again last year. She rides again today.
He had another Goodwood success in September, 2000 when he was ridden by Jimmy Quinn, but long before he began his affair with the Sussex Downs he was one of Dick Hern’s team and gained his first success in a maiden race at Newmarket in 1995 when he was partnered by Richard Hills.
He then moved on to Ginger McCain of Red Rum fame and won an amateurs’ handicap at Wolverhampton in 1997 in the hands of Geoff Lake, who later turned professional and became a jump jockey, and had his first success for the combination of Nicholls, Greaves and the Gardening Partnership who own him, at Lingfield in 1999. He won again at York later that year but since then it is only at Goodwood that his light has shone.
“He lights up like a Christmas tree when he comes here, though sometimes he gets so far behind that you can never be confident,” said Nicholls last year.
And as far as today is concerned, the trainer says that the old horse is in very good form. “It is quite something to get him to be able to run in the same race five years in a row, and as for winning it, well....”, he said.
SATURDAY TICKETS AVAILABLE
Additional tickets have been released for sale on Saturday, so that racegoers can pay on the day to enter both the Gordon and Public Enclosures.
Tickets for the Gordon Enclosure cost £27 and for those for the Public Enclosure are priced at £12.
GOING NEWS AT 10AM
Following yesterday’s rain the going for the second day of the meeting is
GOOD TO SOFT,
SOFT PLACES IN THE STRAIGHT.
“We had eight and a half millimetres of rain between 4pm and 9pm yesterday, but nothing since then apart from a bit of mist this morning,” said clerk of the course Seamus Buckley.
“The soft patches are near the stands’ side but the forecast is that things should dry out through the day.
“We have dolled off two metres on the crown of the lower bend, and the other rails remain in the same positions as they were yesterday.
“On the lower bend we have dolled off five metres from the six furlong marker to the winning post, and on the upper bend for about a furlong round the bend itself.
“The rail along the four furlongs on the far side in the straight will be taken down this evening, that on the lower bend will be removed after racing tomorrow and that on the upper bend on Friday evening, so that there will be a fresh strip for Saturday’s Group 1 race, the Vodafone Nassau Stakes.”
The change in ground conditions from yesterday has thrown a lot of plans into disarray, but one constant throughout the morning has been the level of support for Heir To Be in the opening Marriott Hotels Goodwood Stakes (2.05). He has been backed from 9-1 to 7-1 with Ladbrokes, to the same price from 10-1 with
Victor Chandler, from 7-1 to 6-1 with Paddy Power, from 14-1 much the biggest morning price) to 6-1 with the Tote, to the same price from 10-1 with Skybet and from 10-1 to 15-2 with Coral. In the same race,Powers have cut Marakabei from 8-1 to 7-1 and the mare has also been reduced from 10-1 to 8-1 by Ladbrokes.
Ladbrokes report that Lucky Story is their best-backed horse of the day and he is now at 11-10 from 13-8 in the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Stakes (2.40) The colt has also been popular with Powers where he is at 11-8 from 13-8.
The withdrawals of Kalaman and Where Or When from the Sussex Stakes (3.15) will mean big deductions under rule 4 for those who took an early price, and the best-supported horses since news of those non-runners have been Norse Dancer and Statue of Liberty. Norse Dancer has come in from12-1 to 9-1 in the new market with Ladbrokes, while Coral report strong interest in Statue of Liberty in the old market at 33-1 and from 16-1 to 7-1 in the new version. Skybet’s new list has seen Moon Ballad trimmed from 3-1 to 5-2 and Trade Fair pushed out to 2-1 from 13-8.
Business has taken a wide range in the Tote Gold Trophy Handicap (3.50) with Coral trimming Financial Future from 16-1 to 10-1, and Chandlers bringing in In Love from 25-1 to 16-1 and No Refuge from 10-1 to 8-1. The same duo have been in demand with Paddy Power with In Love now trading at 14-1 from 16-1 and No Refuge in by a point to 9-1. In Love has also been in demand with the Tote, who have cut her frm 25-1 to 14-1. Another popular contender in this heat has been Highland Games, in from 15-2 to 6-1 with Skybet
In the closing Zuhair Handicap (5.35),there has been money for that horse’s stablemate Flak Jacket who is in from 11-2 to 5-1 with Powers and from the same price to 4-1 with Skybet and for outsider Attorney, now at 33-1 from 50-1 with Powers.
