Across The Card Double With Taqneen & Mahsooba

Mon 04 August 2014

La Grange Stables enjoyed an across the card double for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum on Saturday.

Mahsooba looks an exciting two year old filly by the American sire, Hard Spun as she won nicely at Newmarket on her second start.  David Probert settled Mahsooba towards the rear of the field in the seven furlong maiden contest and hit a bit of traffic problems before securing a winning run inside the final furlong.

Taqneen bolted up at Thirsk on his fifth time of trying completing our across the card double.  This gelding had been knocking on the door for some time, finishing second on his last three starts.  The heavens opened at Thirsk and the ground quickly change to soft but this did not affect Taqneen, who was wearing first time blinkers as he made all under Paul Mulrennan winning by three and a half lengths.
