Julie Wood celebrated her 100th winner today when ROUGEMONT won the £250,000 Tattersalls Millions 3YO Trophy at Newmarket. The colt had already won two races last season for Richard Hannon, including a Conditions Race at Leicester in October.
Julie Wood, who has 31 horses in training this season, commented afterwards, “That’s my 100th winners so to win it in a race worth £250,000 is extra special – how exciting! He’s been working well at home and had progressed over the winter, so we came to the race hoping that he’s run well. He had won over the same distance as today’s race so we knew he’d stay the trip. It’s a great start to the season, I so love being an owner in the sport and days like today make it extra special.”
Julie Wood was celebrating her second Tattersalls Millions race win following Zebedee’s win in the £100,000 Tattersalls Millions Auction Stakes in 2010.
Rougemont finished half a length ahead of MICKDAAM, from Richard Fahey’s yard, who had been running well in Dubai this spring with the filly, ARSAADI, finishing in third. The favourite, COUPE DE VILLE also from Richard Hannon’s yard finished fifth.
