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.
