Peter Bowen – Vinnie Roe 5yo is “best we’ve ever had”

Trainer Peter Bowen has never hidden the regard in which he holds Regal Diamond (5h Vinnie Roe-Paper Money, by Supreme Leader) and he described the five-year-old as “the best we’ve ever had” after the horse’s bumper victory on Friday night.

Regal Diamond was completing a three-timer for Vinnie Roe at Aintree on Friday evening after taking the concluding bumper under a penalty when partnered by Tom O’Brien to win by three and three-quarter lengths.

Pembrokeshire-based Bowen has enjoyed many big successes in his 18-year training career but he told the Racing Post that Regal Diamond “is definitely a very good horse, we’re very excited about him and I think he’s the best we’ve ever had”.

Regal Diamond, who won an Ayr bumper on his previous outing, was scoring on the same evening that the Tony Middleton-trained Va’Vite (6m Vinnie Roe- Presenting Shares, by Presenting) and Party Rock (6g Vinnie Roe-Garryduff Elle, by Oscar), from Jennie Candlish’s stable, were also successful at Aintree.
