Socru claimed out of York selling race

Posted by MWE: 10.30 AM Saturday 16 June 2018

Yesterday before the Rous Selling Stakes at York I spotted a horse that to my eye was a bit special. To me he stood out in the York parade ring. His name is Socru and he is a colt by Kodiac.

I had been impressed by him in the paddock before the race so I made a point of watching him run and he travelled beautifully throughout the race so a claim was put in and we brought him home yesterday evening. We took a few photos of him after the race, so he probably doesn't look his best, but this is a very nice horse and I was delighted to get him.

As an aside, I once claimed a horse called Peterhof out of this same race back in the 1970s and he went on to win the Triumph Hurdle! So you never know!

Please note all shares in Socru have now been sold.
