RICHARD SPENCER has every right to pinch himself as his career has progressed in leaps and bounds in only two full seasons in Newmarket and a recent move to the prestigious and historic Sefton Lodge Stables.
Rajasinghe gave him a coveted victory in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot last year and a positive effort by current stable star Rumble Inthejungle in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Ascot this time around was superseded by a silky smooth success in the Group 3 Molecomb Stakes at Goodwood this month.
The move to Sefton Lodge from Albert House Stables was completed shortly after Royal Ascot when Phil Cunningham bought the home of the 1989 St Leger winner Michelozzo from Martyn Meade and the future looks bright for Spencer with his 20 winners and almost £200,000 in prize money already doubling his score for last year.
Spencer said; “I am lucky to be in this position in only my second full season and I am indebted to Phil Cunningham for providing me with this opportunity. We have a great team working with us and I am delighted with the quality of horses we have at our disposal.
“The horses are running well and we have a good bunch of owners and orders for the yearlings Sales for several more new ones. Things are going great and long may it continue.”
Rumble Inthejungle could bid to gain another Group success in the Flying Childers at Doncaster and he was one of the team Spencer spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about as he prepares for other mid-Summer targets.
