Second season trainer OWEN BURROWS has had an excellent 2017 with Massaat lifting the Group 2 Hungerford Stakes at Newbury, Talaayeb winning the Group 3 City Of York Stakes at York and Enjazaat landing the Listed Ripon Two-Year-Old Trophy at Ripon, making August in particular a month to remember.
A respectable first season total of 16 winners has already been passed with 23 on the board and with over £423,000 in prize money, the half million barrier will surely soon be passed, especially with Massaat and Talaayeb both set to contest further Group races in the coming weeks and a lovely well bred bunch of two-year-olds ready to chip in.
Burrows trains primarily for Sheikh Hamdan Al-Maktoum and he has every reason to eye the future with optimism with his own unmistakable talents and amiable air a recipe for much bigger success in the coming years.
Owen said: “I am lucky to have some lovely two-year-olds which are starting to shape up. Next year could be a real nice year if they stay healthy, so we just have to keep our fingers crossed.
“We have smashed last years prize money total and passed last years winner count, and as long as we keep improving we will all be happy.”
Owen kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can make further inroads for him this season and beyond.
