The Roger Varian trained Tomyris was a convincing winner of the Rossdales Maiden Fillies Stakes at Newmarket’s Craven Meeting last week (2oth April). Rossdales have been sponsors of this race for many years and this year's renewal did not disappoint.
Tomyris, an attractive filly by acclaimed sire Invincible Spirit, is owned by Nurlan Blzakov and was having her second racecourse outing. She started 11/4 joint favourite under jockey Silvestre De Sousa. In a field of 8 runners, she took a keen hold early on and ran on strongly to win by 1½ lengths.
Rossdales partner Tim Barnett presented the prizes to winning connections (pictured above and right). The Best Turned Out prize was awarded by Cathee Tasker and Jo Harvey, who are part of our team at the hospital.
