The season may have been truncated for race fans but one of the highlights for those privileged to have crossed paths with him has been the return to the big time for Marcus Tregoning.
The genial Whitsbury Manor trainer has nurtured Mohaather back to full powers after his stable star suffered a setback in his Classic year and the Showcasing colt delivered in no uncertain manner when quickening impressively to beat Queen Anne victor Circus Maximus three quarters of a length in the Group 1 Qatar Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in July with the previously unbeaten Irish 2000 Guineas winner Siskin and the 2000 Guineas winner Kameko in his wake.
Tregoning said: "It’s been a difficult year for everbody, Owners, trainer, jockeys and all those people involved in racing but hopefully this time next year we will be back on the Racecourse properly and enjoying racing as we should.
"Mohaather has obviously been the icing on the cake so far and we were delighted with him victory in the Sussex Stakes as we have always had high hopes for him. Hopefully we can get him to Ascot for Champions Day again and the ground comes up good so he can show the electrifying turn of foot that he possesses."
Tregoning also appears to have an above average group of two-year-olds with Flying Childers-bound Perotto and the classy Alkumait amongst those to deliver in style so far and he kindly spoke to Tony Elves of attheraces.com about his hopes for his team for the remainder of the season.
