Declarationoflove does us proud on debut
The son of Declaration Of War, owned by Ian Barratt, Stephen Short and Adam Signy, was not only our first two-year-old runner but also our first turf runner. We were excited to get a gauge on the rest of our juveniles and delighted that this colt shaped with considerable promise.
Life was always going to be tough for jockey Pat Cosgrave as he was drawn widest of all in stall 11. However, Declarationoflove broke smartly from the gates and was soon on the heels of the leaders. He showed signs of greeness but picked up nicely when asked to be beaten less than two lengths.
Being a 28,000eu buy, we shall be looking towards an aution maiden for him now and hopefully he will be winning for his connections soon.
Our next runners are due in a fortnight or so but it is a busy time in Newmarket with the Craven Meeting and the Breeze-up sales taking place.
