TIM VAUGHAN has every reason to view 2020 with optimism as he is only four short of equalling last season’s tally of 45 and has already amassed £309,697 in prize money from his Aberlethin base in the Vale of Glamorgan with the prospect of plenty more to come in the next few months.
The likeable mare Copper Gone West maintained her progress when gaining valuable black type in a listed mare event at Sandown on Saturday and there could be other big days for her and Eva’s Oskar is another who looks capable of performing at a high level.
Point Of Principle showed he was one for the big stage when runner-up at Aintree last April and a few issues that have held him back have been ironed out as he looks for some starring roles in the Spring.
Vaughan said: “Thankfully, the horses have been flying and long may it last. I hope we have a good second half of the season, then we could smash through the 60-odd winner mark and that would be brilliant.”
There are plenty in the tank down at Aberlethin, handicapped and ready to go and Tim kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can add to his 41 success so far.
