Winner – Chitra
Chitra notched the sixth win of her career in a tightly fought contest at Lingfield on Monday afternoon. Gary and Lesley Middlebrook’s tough homebred daughter of Sea the Moon battled bravely under a well judged Richard Kingscote ride.
Breaking well from the gates as is her customary style the filly ended up just behind the leader and got a nice split as the horses fanned out around the home turn. Battling down the home straight her head was in front where it mattered.
The admirable sprinter has now won 6 of her 19 starts. Only four other horses of her generation have achieved that so far in their career in the UK. It’s a testament to her constitution and the hard work of the team at home in developing her.
The latest generation of yearlings have arrived at Sarsen Farm and there are various ownership opportunities available, from 5% shares to entire horses. Check out the for sale page if you would like to own the horse that can follow in her footsteps.
