We were so thrilled to have a winner on the inuagural CHAMPIONS DAY at Ascot on Saturday! EDINBURGH KNIGHT rose to the challenge in the last race, which was a class 2 handicap for apprentices, the future stars of the racecourse. We had originally booked Joseph O'Brien to ride Eddie, but he was required to ride for Ballydoyle at Cork, so super-sub Matthew Davies, who has recently ridden out his claim stepped in. Matthew has previously had a couple of rides for us and is an able young man, and gave Eddie a peach of a ride to take it up a furlong our and hold on to win by 3/4 of a length. Eddie and Matthew paraded in front of the stands then entered the great winner's enclosure flanked by the troopers and to a fanfare just the same as all the other winners on the day. It was a very exciting time for Eddie's owners Knights Racing, who comprise Ron Delnevo, Martin Hyson, Peter and John Lupson. The occasion was not lost on any of his thrilled connections! It will live long in the memory!
