Jockey Graham Lee wins three races at Ayr Racecourse
By: Iain Ferguson
IT was treble tops for jockey Graham Lee at the Racing UK Raceday at Ayr Racecourse on Monday when he rode a three timer.
Lee’s first win came on the Newmarket raider Thecornishcowboy (11/8 fav) in the Jacqui Maloney 60th Birthday Celebration Handicap.
Legs two and three of the treble were for trainer Jim Goldie. Monel, a 5/1 chance in the colours of Johnnie Delta Racing, won Division 1 of the Racing UK Free 1 Month Trial Handicap followed by Goninodaethat (8/1) in Division 11. Both horses had been successful at Ayr’s May meeting.
Carluke-based trainer Keith Dalgleish looks to have a great prospect in Doc Charm. The even money favourite in the hands of stable jockey Tom Eaves sprinted six lengths clear to win the EBF/ Scottish Sun Raceday 21st June Maiden Stakes. The prestigious Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot is next on the agenda for this two year-old.
Dalgleish and Eaves doubled up with Lysino, an 11/4 chance, in the longest race of the afternoon, the one mile five furlong handicap an emphatic eight length winner.
North Yorkshire based trainer Ruth Carr took the feature race, the Racing UK Anywhere Available Now Handicap with San Cassiano (5/1) ridden by James Sullivan (pictured above).
The next meeting at Ayr Racecourse is The Scottish Run Raceday on Saturday 21 June. For more information call 01292 264179 or go online at www.ayr-racecourse.co.uk
