Viking Jack Wins On an Emotional Night at Sheffield

They say life is a roller coaster, well it is with Jack and it has been this week, and it is only Tuesday! Last week Jack stumbled and went out of the Three Steps to Victory, but ran amazingly well to catch up. On Monday we heard the sad news that Devilfish had died and then tonight, Jack was the sunshine after the rain….

Well backed all day, our members were on, Racing Post Readers were on and everyone I spoke to at Sheffield was on! It was a monster gamble, 9/2 in to 5/2. Job done! Win and you’re in, well we did win and we are in!

It means so much to me personally to win a big race at Sheffield, I love Sheffield, I am a local boy and I first went to Sheffield in 1984, over 30 years ago. My Grandad took me there the first time, now the dog that carries his name gave me a night I will never forget!

Thank you to Jim, he deserves to win The Derby, along with Mick and the whole team they are the reason Jack is such a top dog, good dogs need good trainers! The William Hill sponsorship of the Derby is superb, the win and you are in trial stakes are superb, and as I said I started my career as Marketing Manager for William Hill, 20 years ago, many things came together for me on Tuesday night!

Jack didn’t trap that well, but boy he showed some pace, and remember he is NOT YET THREE! So he is reaching his peak and the next few months could be very exciting!

What a superb night and I am so pleased for everyone who was on, a big gamble and Jack Delivered!

See you at Wimbledon!
