Mullins is Dynamite at York
Willie Mullins and Frankie Dettori provided owner Rich Ricci with his biggest flat success to date as the Galway Hurdle runner up finished clear of the rest in the Group 2 Lonsdale Cup at York this afternoon.
Ran well in the Northumberland Plate when second behind Quest For More but was supremly ahead of the field today under a confident Frankie Dettori ride with Mizzou closest behind in second and Hidden Gold completing the places.
Rich Ricci “That was excellent, Frankie brilliant and Willie Mullins is a genius. He won on the snaff, I’m not used to this Flat lark and it’s brilliant. We had hopes he might be a Melbourne Cup horse. I think he’ll probably go to Australia. We’ll see what mark he gets and and it’s an option we’ll consider.”
The second Mizzou has done better this time reversing recent form with those in behind and now Luca Cumani will look towards Champions Day…
“He ran very well and got his revenge on the Gold Cup horses. He ran a cracking race and we will look at the Cup races at Doncaster and particularly the big one on Champions day.”
