Amanda Perrett’s Wordismybond was an easy winner at Brighton today. The eight year old was winning for the ninth time in the delightfully named ‘Merton Group UK Loo Roll Manufacturers Handicap’ to secure another victory for Monsieur Bond.
Monsieur Bond was again on target as Rubis won at Ayr over none furlongs. This was a double success for Norton Grove as her dam, Princess Cocoa (pictured above), is a Norton Grove resident. Rubis was recording her third career success.
A fantastic result for Norton Grove Stud today as Soie D’leau wins at Leicester in heavy ground.
