Promising Churchill Colt Follows Up On Return
Tarjeeh (3c Churchill - Myturn, by Rock Of Gibraltar) reproduced the promise shown last season when making a winning return to action at Wolverhampton on Saturday.
The Owen Burrows-trained colt beat subsequent Listed winner Dancing Magic (Camelot) when winning at Newbury last summer and was sent off favourite at the weekend, despite a significant absence. Stepping up to ten furlongs, the bay raced in touch with the leaders and was asked to quicken turning for home. Ridden to challenge approaching the final furlong, he led close home to win by a nose under Saffie Osborne.
Tarjeeh is owned by Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum, having been bought by his trainer as a yearling for 160,000gns. The promising son of Churchill was bred by Gerard and Anne Corry out of their homebred mare Myturn (Rock Of Gibraltar).
