Alex Ferguson times it to perfection at Catterick
A cool head and a patient ride were demonstrated at Catterick tonight when Alex Ferguson‘s waiting tactics with trainer Saeed bin Suroor’s ARABIAN BEAUTY were used to good effect in the familiar Godolphin colours. Having won here three times already (including both last year and this in the Betfair Series), Alex is becoming something of a course specialist.
Holding the filly up in the rear, Alex still had most of the field in front of him 2 furlongs from home but when he asked her to quicken she stayed on strongly to get up inside the final furlong and won by just over a length, going away. This was Alex’s 4th win on the course from 5 rides, and his 6th win overall. Congratulations Alex!
