ATB Horses Ready To Kick Off At Royal Ascot

Jun 14, 2014

This coming week sees Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock horses head to Royal Ascot. Trained by Marco Botti, Tac De Boistron and Dandino kick it off.

Tac de Boistron is racing on Thursday in the Ascot Gold Cup over 4000m. With two starts under his girth for this prep, in his first start for the prep he won the Group Three Sargo Stakes over 3200m with top weight ridden by Frankie Dettori. His second start, The Group Two Yorkshire Cup on a good track he came second. While this gelding relishes wet ground Marco dared running him on a good ground in what turned out to be a great decision by the star International Trainer. The race takes place at 4:25pm on Thursday in the UK, or in Australia in the early hours of Friday morning at 1:25am. The following is a link to the nominations card: http://www.racingpost.com/horses2/cards/card.sd?race_id=599415&r_date=2014-06-19#raceTabs=lc_

The following is a video for you to decide if Tac de Boistron is the best wet stayer in the world. Take a look, you'll be amazed at Tac's determination to win! 

Dandino is set to resume from his spell on Saturday in the Group Two Hardwicke Stakes over 2400m. The six-year-old Dansili stallion has been working great and Marco has been very happy with his progress. Nominations for this race are yet to come so stay tuned.
