Homebred Yuften wins the Balmoral Handicap
Yuften played his part in an exciting QIPCO Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday when capturing the concluding race on the card, the prestigious Balmoral Handicap.
Making his second start for Roger Charlton, the Blue Diamond Stud homebred was always travelling well in the hands of Andrea Atzeni before pouncing against the rail two furlongs out.
Yuften was always in control after that and held the runner-up Remarkable at bay despite idling late on.
It marked the third win for Yuften, who finished second past the post to Charm Spirit in the Group 1 Prix Jean Prat as a three-year-old and defeated the classy Sir Isaac Newton in a Dundalk conditions race earlier this year.
Atzeni was impressed with his mount.
