What do Tony Soprano, Sir Alex Ferguson and MC Hammer all have in common? Well, all three have known the joys of racehorse ownership – believe it or not, back in the day Hammer even owned the winner of the filly equivalent of the Kentucky Derby. You can’t touch that.
We mention this not to wow you with our obscure knowledge of hip-hop / equine connections, but because very soon, we’ll be giving our players the chance to join the ranks of the racehorse owner. Yep, in the coming weeks we’ll be giving you the option to own a ‘virtual’ stake in our very own noble steed, Immortal Romance.
First things first, though; the 32Red-owned colt is preparing to make his maiden run today (Tuesday, June 6th). Immortal Romance’s first ride comes at the Injured Jockeys Fund Novice Stakes – it’s the 2.20 at Yarmouth and he will be ridden by 32Red’s very own Jamie Spencer, if you fancy a flutter – click here.
And trainer Michael Bell has been impressed by the two-year-old. Here’s what he had to say about the colt: “He has been pleasing me on the gallops and has a good attitude and moves well. He is due to do some fast work on Saturday morning and subject to how he works we will make a decision about his participation on Tuesday.”
You can see Immortal Romance training in the video below (in the dark blue cap), working the gallops with Highlight Reel (who, incidentally, finished a creditable 2nd in the 2.10 from Lingfield on June 1st).
