We were delighted to return from Warwick’s Classic Chase day with a winner yesterday, as Point Of Principle was successful on his debut in the concluding bumper under Alan Johns!

Settled in midfield through the first half of the race, he came off the bridle in the back straight, but responded really well to pressure and, having closed into third rounding the home bend, he stayed on relentlessly up the straight, taking the lead entering the final furlong and galloping on resolutely to the line.

It was a hugely encouraging performance from the four year old, a £8,500 purchase from the Doncaster Sale last May, and he looks to have a very bright future for his owners Oceans Racing, many of whom were present to cheer him home!  He is absolutely fine this morning and we will give him a few quiet days before having a think on where he could go next.
