Berkeley House Stables started the two-year-old season in style sending their first runner to St Cloud, France to win over 4f 104y.
A jubilant Stan Moore said: '' Wow we are so excited today we think you probably heard us screaming from anywhere in the UK. First runner of the new season and our first time our two year old French Encore.....won convincingly and impressively at St Cloud today under a super ride by Liam Jones. He jumped fast from the stalls and was in the firing line all the way, so exciting. He has some entries at the end of the week and in to next week so hoping he can give us an ENCORE!''
This bay gelding, a son of Showcasing out of a placed mare, raced in the silks of Mrs Evelyn Yates. This yearling was bought in by the vendor for £2,000. With engagements for the Brocklesby Conditions Stakes (Saturday) it will be interesting to see if this February foal makes a quick reappearance. Congratulations to connections.
