Lafontaine is 1 of 14 runners declared for the 4.30 at Lingfield on Thursday 30th over 6 furlongs where she will be ridden but the yard’s apprentice Gary Mahon who also rides her every day. Whilst she’s been going well at home she’s sure to need the first run (as do all Sylvester’s juveniles on debut) especially as she’s drawn wide in stall 13 of 14 runners but we’ll hope for some encouragement for the future and see her finish her race off well. Please call 01559 363763 – or email- by 4pm on Wednesday about availability of owners’ badges
The winning suggested name will win a 10% share in her first season in training with Sylvester Kirk plus 10% of any prizemoney she wins during that time. Our lovely filly (stable name Pitstop after Penelope Pitstop – because she dashes around the fields coming to an abrupt stop before setting off again) is by leading UK stallion Swiss Spirit and out of our multiple winning mare Delagoa Bay.
