Sands Of Mali routs Gimcrack rivals
Sun 27 Aug 2017
Sands Of Mali was a hugely impressive winner of the G2 Gimcrack Stakes at York on Saturday for owners The Cool Silk Partnership and trainer Richard Fahey. Purchased at the Tattersalls Ireland Ascot Breeze-Up Sale in April, the imposing colt followed up his striking victory in a Novice Race at Nottingham with a sensational performance at York. Bounced out into the lead by Paul Hanagan, Sands Of Mali quickened up smartly when challenged and powered clear to win by 3.5L. He heads for the G1 Middle Park Stakes next and is now the joint second highest rated two year-old in Europe.
