Record run from Dimension
Friday 27 July 2012
Dimension could be bound for the Park Stakes at Doncaster in September after justifying trainer James Fanshawe's faith by winning the sportinglife.com Handicap at York.
Beaten favourite for the Hunt Cup at Royal Ascot, the four-year-old was sent off the 4-1 market leader this time in the hands of Tom Queally.
And he did it in style, breaking the seven-furlong course record as he galloped home by half a length from White Frost. The first two drew four lengths clear of Imperial Djay in third.
"He hasn't achieved quite what I thought he was going to do so far, but hopefully this will be a step in the right direction," said Fanshawe.
"He likes top of the ground and seven furlongs is his trip. He might be a Group horse now. It might be long shot, but I've given him an entry in the Park Stakes at Doncaster."
