BGC Racing donate first Frankel progeny to win over jumps, prize money, to the IJF

by IJF |  19 Dec 2017

The BGC Racing owned ‘Solo Saxophone’ became Frankel’s first winner over Jumps at Catterick on Tuesday afternoon, when coming with a storming late run, after a few traffic issues to impressively win by four lengths. The 3yo colt trained by Dan Skelton, made a perfect winning start to National Hunt racing, opening his account in the 'Injured Jockeys Fund Juvenile Hurdle’ under jockey Harry Skelton. The BGC Racing Club the very generously donated the winnings to the Injured Jockeys Fund, for which we are very grateful. We wish you all the best for the future with Solo Saxophone and your other syndicated horses also.
