Battling the rain at Yarmouth ISLAY OF ANGLESEY puts in a stoic performance to land the spoils in the Supporting Stable Staff Week Handicap under Ray Dawson.
The move up in trip from 7 furlongs proved favourable for ISAY OF ANGLESEY this afternoon. The three-year-old son of Holy Roman Emporer saw the one mile race out in decent fashion to open his account. Remaining prominent over the course and distance, taking up the running in the closing stages, a duel unfolded with BUNKER BAY who put in a challenge up the home straight. ISLAY OF ANGLESEY prevailed denying BUNKER BAY the win, holding on to land the prize by 2 ¼ lengths.
Congratulations to Opulence Thoroughbreds and winning connections. ISLAY OF ANGLESEY justified market favouritism in style this afternoon and we hope he continues on this upward trajectory this season.
