Ellie MacKenzie wins at Sandown
Ellie MacKenzie’s name is already familiar amongst Arabian racing followers, especially after her debut success at Group level at Newbury’s Dubai International Arabian Races (DIAR) meeting last July for the Royal Cavalry of Oman, denying Tadhg O’Shea victory in a driving finish with Olivier Peslier third.
The CNA Hardy Handicap over a mile for lady riders at Sandown on 6th July showed Ellie enjoy her first win this season under Rules and her third overall with Rod Millman’s BIOTIC, holding her horse up until the last 100 yards where he responded gamely to being shaken up and won comfortably.
Many congratulations Ellie on a cool headed ride and well done to winning connections. You can enjoy watching the closing stages of the race here:
