The feature segment of today’s Kenilworth card kicked off with an impressive win for the first timer Amiorix in the listed Summer Juvenile Stakes.
Vaughan Marshall’s Vercingetorix colt was ridden by Luke Ferraris, who scored his first stakes win since qualifying as a fully fledged jockey.
Sheldon set the pace, but the eventual winner was always in touch, and led from about 400m out to win comfortably.
Barzalona came from last to run second, while favourite High Hosanna stayed on for third, without ever seriously threatening.
“I think he’s a special colt,” commented Vaughan Marshall, who has seen a few such juveniles in his time.
