Bryan Smarts Sirenuse showed very good speed to win the 5f C4 Handicap at Thirsk today on going described as Good to Firm, she clocked a time of 57.98 secs in doing so which was slightly faster than the C2 won by Fol Hollow on the same card. She managed to bag the rail and was able to stay to win by 1 1/4 lengths from the fast finishing pair of Brierty and Indian Trail. Said to have got even faster this year, she is a pure 5f horse that requires fast ground to show her best. She looks sure to go on from this.
I have been a follower of racing from an early age with my first memory being trying to pick the winner of the Derby in 1965. This interest has moved on to having shares in horses which has resulted in wins at the Dubai Festival, with Turn on the Style, and more recently with Tatlisu in the Ayr Silver Cup.
This blog is primarily about sprinters which I have always had an interest in and it will cover most 5f and 6f races throughout the season.
