SORS ran out an impressive winner of the Rockingham Handicap at the Curragh on Sunday. Racing from 7lb out of the handicap, Andy Slattery’s horse kept on well on the near side under a fine ride from the talented 7lb claimer Killian Leonard to get home by a length and three-quarters from Kimberella, who raced towards the far side.
It was another high in Andy Slattery’s season. His horses continue to go really well. Two more winners on Tuesday, Sharjah at Hamilton and Sir Dreamalot at Sligo, brought his total in Ireland and Britain for the season to 10. And Flowerhill Nova ran well to finish second at Fairyhouse on Wednesday on his first attempt over seven furlongs, a trip that probably stretched his stamina.
