If Charlie Fellowes thought his week couldn’t get any better when Onassis provided him with a successive victory in the Sandringham Handicap at Royal Ascot, his fortunes would be even greater two days later.
Thanks Be had provided the Bedford House stables trainer with a first Royal Ascot winner in 2019 and he would have gratefully have settled with Onassis’s success last Thursday but the champagne corks were popping once more when Chiefofchiefs made it a double for the week when staying on strongly to beat Burmese Waltz a length and a quarter in the Silver Wokingham on Saturday.
“Winning any race at Royal Ascot is a incredible thrill but to win two is unbelievable and it’s been an unforgettable week,” said Fellows. “The horses have been running ok but they really thrived last week and long may it last.”
The stable has now notched up ten winners since the start of the year and Charlie kindly guided Tony Elves of attheraces.com through his prospects for the coming weeks and months.
