The Gold Cheongsam bags big sales pot
Report: Doncaster, Thursday
Weatherbys Insurance 2-Y-O Stakes (CLASS 2) 2yo
BOTTOM-WEIGHT The Gold Cheongsam landed the Weatherbys Insurance 2-Y-O Stakes, narrowly beating Hajam by a neck.
Ridden by Franny Norton, the 11-4 favourite was the only filly in the 6½f contest.
66-1 outsider Hajam was given a decent ride by Martin Dwyer, but just failed to catch the winner, while third spot went to 33-1 chance Haafaguinea. The Aidan O'Brien-trained Parliament Square, sent off second favourite, finished in fifth.
William Hill introduced The Gold Cheongsam, trained by Jeremy Noseda, at 33-1 in their Qipco 1,000 Guineas market.
Aptly, with it being Ladies' day at Doncaster, the winning owner Arashan Ali revealed the horse was given her unusual name after a style of dress.
Ali said: "All the credit must go to Jeremy and his team, they made it possible."
The winner is in the Group 1 Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes, but Ali added: "I don't know whether she will run. Jeremy is the boss and he decides."
