Beautifully ridden (and it would have to be said even if he didn’t win) by Rajiv Maragh, Main Sequence won his first race of the 2015 season. He’s feeling a lot more comfortable now and breaks with the field which is good, but if you are on the rail and need an outside run it could pose a problem, but Rajiv knows his horse and knew he had to get him to the outside for his winning run. It was lovely to see him hit the front and keep running rather than wait for the field as in the past. An honororable mention to the wonderful Twilight Eclipse owned by our other owners West Point Thoroughbreds. As Todd Schrupp put it, Twilight Eclipse is what Sham was to Secretariat! David Grening said “And all the older dirt male horses in the country breathe a sigh of relief that they have their own Eclipse Award category.” Many, many congratulations to Flaxman Holdings Limited for their homebred Eclipse winner.
