Owner Chris van Hoorn was delighted to be back at the racecourse and to see his homebred filly Sweet Charity return to the winners enclosure under an exquisite ride from champion jockey Oisin Murphy. Travelling really well throughout the ten furlong handicap, Sweet Charity was last off the bridle and Oisin eased her through a gap to challenge half way up the home straight. Finishing best of all, it seemed to most viewers and pundits that she had won by a head, but with the bob of heads exactly on the line, Rob Hornby's rally on the long time leader Vischio made the winning margin judged to be just a nose after a long delay. Always trying her heart out, this was a sweet victory for Sweet Charity, giving weight to a field of mostly younger horses. Two winners in two days makes the start of the month very memorable for all connected with Keeper's Stables.
Located on the Berkshire Downs in the famous racing village of West Ilsley, this picturesque and tranquil racing yard with some of the finest gallops in the country is a fantastic place to have a horse in training. Pictured right is Miss Marjurie winning Group 3 at Haydock 30th May 2015
