Rodrigo De Torres makes a comeback in the Sports, Games, Bingo and More Conditions Stakes
Rodrigo De Torres, partly owned by Elaine Burke, made a terrific comeback when he bagged a victory in the Sports, Games, Bingo and More Conditions Stakes at Nottingham on 6th June, 2012, with Martin Harley aboard.
With a 7-1 shot, things did not seem to go in his favour in the early part of the race, but he proved the prediction wrong and defeated the Saeed Bin Suroor trained, Invisible Man, by 3 ¾ lengths, who was also the race favourite.
Karl Burke, who trains the runner and assists Elaine Burke commented on his performance:
"He had run over mile before so I wasn't too worried and I just told Martin to ride it like a seven-furlong race in that if he was striding well, then to go on."
Referring to Invisible Man and his strategy, Karl Burke further commented:
"I was glad the Godolphin horse was right out the back as I'm not a great believer of leaving them too much to do here, even though it's a long straight."
The five-year-old son of Bahamian Bounty, out of Leonica, redeemed himself from his disastrous performance in the Betfred Victoria Cup at Ascot on 12thMay, 2012, where he finished last.
Referring to the aforementioned race, Burke commented:
"He had been working really well all winter, but put he in bad piece of work five days before Ascot. I put down as an off-day but he wasn't right.”
The Garry Woodward trained, Errigal Lad, was a source of surprise for his connections, as he caused a major race upset and aced the Play Big Money totejackpot At Handicap at Nottingham on 6th June, 2012.
With jockey Kelly Harrison on his back, the chestnut gelding claimed the narrow victory by a margin of a neck over the Ronald Harris trained Prodigality, while the third place was secured by Comrade Bond.
The son of Bertolini, out of mare La Belle Vie, also showed remarkable improvement from his eleventh place finish in the Sharnford Handicap at Leicester on 28th May, 2012.
This was the third career victory for the seven-year-old gelding that previously triumphed in the Handicap on 15th September, 2008.
