Picture: Collen Storey extracts a late rally from the 125/1 shot Kraka (via youtube)
“Hats off to Collen Storey, causing a big upset aboard 125/1 shot Kraka at Yarmouth thanks to a sensational front-running ride!”, wrote At The Races before posting the below video of yesterday’s race.
The Christine Dunnett-trained seven-year-old Dark Angel gelding Kraka had not finished within ten lengths of the winner in his six previous starts.
He started at those long odds despite there just being six horses in yesterday’s field.
It was Storey’s 28th ride in the UK and his third win.
He has an 11% strike rate, despite generally riding longshots.
“This horse does not like company, so I tried to keep him away from the others and it has worked out,” Storey told Sky Racing.
