Flying Pursuit

Tim Easterby won the York Dash for the second consecutive season when Flying Pursuit made most to deny stablemate Golden Apollo.

The five-year-old was down to his lowest mark in twelve months and took full advantage under a competent ride from Nathan Evans.

Easterby said: “I couldn’t split them. They are both lovely horses, but the rain that came meant everything (for Flying Pursuit).

“The Ayr Gold Cup is the plan now, but there’s also the Stewards’ Cup to think about.

“It has to rain, but if it does he’ll run at Goodwood.”
