Sumos Novios (Flemensfirth) winning the G3 Imperial Call Chase at Cork

Sumos Novios is G3 winner for Flemensfirth

Cork’s feature G3 Imperial Call Chase on Easter Sunday went the way of Flemensfirth’s son Sumos Novios (10g Flemensfirth-Gaelic Million, by Strong Gale).

The classy chaser brought success for trainer Liam Burke and his jockey son Jonathan when winning the three-mile contest comfortably ahead of odds-on favourite Mala Beach.

"He is settling and did everything right,” said the successful trainer. “The horse found plenty today when (Jonathan) asked him and for a big horse he is agile enough over his fences. I'll run him in Punchestown if the weather lasts.”

Sumos Novios was bred by Cora Cronin.
