Son Of No Nay Never Maintains Perfect Record
Hamlet (3g No Nay Never - Pandora, by Galileo) produced a smart performance to make it two from two at Catterick on Saturday.
John Quinn’s charge beat a previous winner when making a successful debut last month and dropped down to six furlongs on his second start. Racing prominently under Gianluca Sanna, the bay was asked to quicken approaching the two furlong marker and was ridden a furlong later. Leading inside the final furlong, he soon drew clear and went on to win by two lengths and three quarters going away.
“Hamlet is a nice type,” the winning trainer later said. “He’s a late-maturing horse who didn't run at two but who we liked a lot. He won well and has the makings of a nice horse.”
Hamlet was bred by Sir Robert Ogden out of the black-type Galileo mare Pandora, herself a daughter of Listed winner Song Of My Heart (Footstepsinthesand).
