Tuesday 24th January
Delighted for all concerned with Master Vintage winning at Leicester today. Given a special ride by Danny Hiskett, this hard pulling type made all and stayed on well up the straight to win convincingly by 6 lengths.
Having been off the course for over 700 days with various problems, including a kissing spine, he rewarded connections for their extreme patience.
He is the first home-bred of the Somedays Here Partnership, who are Eustace and Carol Theodore, Karen Anderson and Amanda Langdale. Apart from the latter, they all live in America but watched the race with great excitement, whilst Amanda was present to see the great win.
Great credit should be given to all at Highwood Farm for all their patience and hard work, and also Gulab Singh who looks after and rides him most days.
Let’s hope his problems are behind him and he can make up for lost time and follow up on this success.
