‘Red Dragon roars home late…..’

Red Dragon – won at Salisbury under a brilliant ride from Rob Hornby finishing with a late surge in the one mile handicap.

The Racing Post commented: ‘the Michael Blanshard trained seven year old was winning for the first time in four years… and Rob Hornby added ‘Michael was spot on when he told me he needs a strongly run mile and doesn’t quite get a mile and a quarter.’

The win was very special for Lady Eliza Mays Smith, a great supporter of the yard,  who had Red Dragon turned out at home last year when he was recuperating from a couple of minor setbacks.
