Alemaratalyoum took the journey up to Newcastle yesterday as he sought to maintain our good recent record at the track in the 2:00 this afternoon. Silvestre De Sousa decided to go to the front of the four runner field when there was no early pace and he dictated affairs on the son of Lope De Vega. He started to wind up the pace as they entered the final two furlongs and strode away to ultimately win comfortably from Mia Cara.
It is hard to get too carried away with this performance given that our colt had three pounds in hand of the field on official ratings with two of his three opponents. He did win comfortably however and he looks to be an improving type. We hope the handicapper will not treat him too hashly given the race was run three seconds above standard and he was able to dictate the gallop, as well as this the second was rated 67.
Congratulations to Mr Mohammed Jaber who owns Alemaratalyoum. We hope your colt can improve as the season progresses and provide you with some fun during the 2017 campaign. Well done to everyone at La Grange, we have made a slightly faster start than last season and hopefully we can maintain the stable form as we approach the turf season.
