Game Set and Match totesport Mile
03/08/07

1st 19 Third Set 5/2 FAV
2nd 8 Humungous 20/1
3rd 9 King Of Argos 6/1
4th 10 River Tiber 10/1

Third Set served it up to his rivals again today when adding a Glorious Goodwood victory in the £150,000 totesport Mile, the richest mile handicap of the year, to his recent triumphs at Newmarket’s July Meeting and Ascot’s King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes fixture.

Fast ground suits the Roger Charlton-trained four-year-old, who is owned by John Livock, an ardent fan of tennis.

Charlton said: “We never thought we’d go to Newmarket and win there, go to Ascot and win there, come here and win again. You enter big races and don’t expect to get in, and when we declared for Ascot I said to the owner I don’t think the ground will be right for him, but we’ll declare and get our money back. Instead he gets in, the ground is right and the rest is history. There’s a lot of luck involved.

“People have asked if we had a scheme, but we didn’t. He’s just a nice horse. We’re lucky because he only loses four kilos each time he runs, whereas your average horse loses about 10 or 12 kilos. He puts the weight back on easily, doesn’t seem to need much work and seems very uncomplicated, so since his last race he’s had a day on the walker, a day walking and trotting, a day cantering and a little breeze-up, then we turned him out in a pen and he did nothing yesterday.

“Our horses have come to themselves, but there was nothing really wrong with them. Over the years you accept you will get blank periods in the season. If you’re going to have a good time, it’s better in the second half of the season, because there’s a chance owners will notice and send you a good horse.”

Winning jockey Jimmy Quinn said: “When he came through he opened them up. I had to take the gap when it came and although that was half a furlong too soon I didn’t want to miss my chance. When I got through I sat on him, let him fill his lungs and then aimed for the lollipop. That was my goal.

“It’s nice to get a chance on a horse like this. I’ve been riding a long time, just up and down, up and down, but it’s a dream to get on a horse like this that can be so good twice in a week.

“"It's great isn't it? He's a jockey's dream and there's no snags with him. He's a beautiful big horse and we had an ideal draw.”

 

NO SERIOUS INJURIES IN GOODWOOD FALL

The pile-up one and a half furlongs out in the totesport Mile at Goodwood today resulted in three horses coming down and their jockeys being thrown to the ground.

The three horses and jockeys involved were Drumfire, ridden by Joe Fanning, who fell when clipping the heels of a horse in front of him and brought down Blades Girl, partnered by Ted Durcan, and Darryll Holland’s mount Uhoomagoo.

Ted Durcan walked away unscathed and is fit to ride Light Shift in tomorrow’s Blue Square Nassau Stakes, while Darryll Holland has a suspected broken thumb and Joe Fanning has been taken to Chichester Hospital for precautionary X-rays on his chest but walked into the ambulance.

The stewards held an enquiry and found that the Tolley Dean-ridden Azarole had interfered with Drumfire who clipped heels and fell, bringing down Blades Girl and Uhoomagoo. They considered the interference accidental.

Ted Durcan told Channel 4 TV: “The horse in front of me hit the floor and I was right behind him and unable to swerve around. So I went out over him and it was just a pile-up - one of those things. A bit unlucky but hopefully it is lucky with nobody badly injured and the horses all walked away.

“I could see what was happening ahead of me but there was no room. There loads of runners and the race had really started in earnest so everybody was looking for some room and the beaten horses were dropping back which is half the issue.

“I am perfect but I spoke with the physio and she wants to me to miss the rest of my rides today and put ice on my ankle. I will be here in the morning, no problems.”
