Toormore is a National treasure

first_imgToormore took his unblemished record to three with an emphatic all-the-way win in the Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes at the Curragh. Richard Hughes bounced the Richard Hannon-trained colt out of the stalls and set the pace he wanted. The even-money favourite asserted a furlong to win from his main market rival Sudirman, with Giovanni Boldini third. Press Associationcenter_img Tim Palin, racing manager for Middleham Park, said “We weren’t sure whether to make the running or not beforehand but he ended up getting a fairly uncontested lead. He’s a great attitude and the further he goes the better he is. “He’s in the Racing Post Trophy (Doncaster, October 26) but will not run again this season. He’s a very clean-winded horse, and could go straight for the Guineas next year.” Hughes said: “The track is wide open and windy, and it’s difficult for two-year-olds. He’s not a precocious two-year-old by any means and is a big shell of a horse.” last_img
