Clares Rocket lay down a clear signal of intent at the weekend as he broke the current Towcester track record in a solo 500m trial. Navigating the track much better than his first look last week he shaved 24 spots off the current record, stopping the clock at 28.94.

Alongside Clares Rocket we took another 5 runners, next best on the clock was Drive On Tipp who crossed the line in 29.10. Kiss and Hug recorded 29.32, Garryvoe Bobby 29.43 and Impressive Guy 29.59. Last years Irish Derby Finalist, Sonic, completed a solo sprint in a solid 15.46.

With a little over 6 weeks until the opening round, the intention is to continue heading to Towcester for the upcoming Trial Stakes to enhance our teams knowledge of the circuit.
