Equiano has enjoyed a successful August with six winners to date including recent maiden winner Jack Daniel. The one-eyed Jack Daniel lost his eye before he was broken in and produced a shock on his racecourse debut to strike at 25-1 in the Racingtv.com Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Redcar Racecourse. This 3yo son of Equiano out of a Dansili mare was ridden into contention by jockey Harrison Shaw who kicked clear at the 3 furlong marker to land the 7 furlong median by a length and a quarter. Trainer Declan Carroll reported after the race that “this win has given us a lot pleasure. He lost his eye as a 2yo before he was even broken in. He’s a big horse who has always shown ability. I’d imagine he’ll come on from this”.
Congratulations to all connections!
