July Festival success for Celsius
Sat 09 Jul 2022
YARD favourite Celsius secured another victory on the big stage when taking the concluding 5f-handicap at Newmarket's July Festival.
The son of Dragon Pulse, owned by Chris Fahy, Jon Collins and Steve Piper, has bounced back to form this season winning at Ascot back in April before this impressive success.
He was always to the fore under Jack Mitchell and stayed on well up the hill to beat Ancient Times by a length.
Tom said: "He really is a very special horse. He was our first Glorious Goodwood winner, our first Ascot winner and now our first winner at the July Festival.
"He wasn't right last season and as a result we knew we had a well-handicapped horse. That said, Celsius has retained all of his enthusiasm and this was a teriffic effort."
