Trainer Ruth Carr at the double at Ayr Racecourse
By: Iain Ferguson
TRAINER Ruth Carr was in double winning form at Ayr Racecourse yesterday, saddling Vallarta to win the William Hill In The App Store Handicap followed by Victoire De Lyphar in the feature race of the day, the William Hill Dowload The App Handicap.
Both horses were ridden by Jimmy Sullivan, who had to be at his strongest on Vallarta, who just held on by a short to beat Invoke. The horse is owned by St Andrews businessman Douglas Renton.
Victoire de Lyphar held off Moonlightnavigator, who has now finished second on the last three Mondays at Ayr.
Linda Perratt, who trains at Jackton near East Kilbride, was successful with Dark Crystal, who last week became her first winner of the season, and followed up with a comfortable length and a quarter win from Charava in the William Hill Daily Racing Podcast Handicap over seven furlongs.
Keith Dalgleish continued his fine season when Sattelac (pictured left above), ridden by Phillip Makin, got up by a nose to beat Sakhalin Star in the one mile two furlong handicap. That was Keith’s 46th winner of the year.
