Chindit (Wootton Bassett) Wins The Group 3 Superier Mile Stakes at Haydock

Another Group Win for Chindit

The Group III Superior Mile (1m) at Haydock on Saturday delivered another feature race win for talented stallion Chindit (5h Wootton Bassett x Always a Dream, by Oasis Dream).

A Group winner at two, three and four, the Richard Hannon trained Chindit can mix his form, but on his day is very effective and has multiple Group wins and Group I placings on his resume.

With race favourite Light Infantry held up in traffic, Chindit stole a march and was strong to the lien for James Doyle to win by more than two lengths.

“Chindit deserves it, he's such an honest horse. We were frustrated to get beat last time. He's been going well at home and we were confident and he's won impressively. We'll see how he comes back and take it from there, but there are a few plans and we'll see what the boss chooses,” said assistant trainer Hector Tournier.

Chindit was a 65,000 guineas purchases from the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale and has the overall record of eight wins and four placings from 21 starts.

He is the best of two winners from Always a Dream, a winning Oasis Dream mare from the family of Group I Epsom Derby winner Motivator.

Chindit is one of 37 stakes-winners by Wootton Bassett, who looked sensational at the recent Coolmore stallion parades and stands at a fee of $93,500 with his first yearlings to sell here in Australia in 2024.
