Royal Musketeer sweeps to victory at Southwell Owner Mr Mike Stacey collects the award Steph Hollinshead Racing

Royal Musketeer (Acclamation x Queen’s Pearl) delivered an early Christmas present for owners S and S Racing, recording a fine victory on the all weather surface at Southwell on Friday 22nd December 2023 in the ‘Bet £10 Get £40 At BetMGM Handicap (Div I) (Class 5) (0-72, 3yo+) over 7f 14yds’.

Royal Musketeer under a fine ride from David Allan was prominent early on and was the first out of the pack to chase down the initial leader Night on Earth going past him 1 furlong out and holding on to win by a neck from second placed Novak.

“I’m really pleased with Royal Musketeer, he ran a good race after a short break which seemed to freshened him up. He has form on the all weather and has benefitted from training on our newly installed all weather gallop at Longdon. He was really fit, shaped well and gave an honest and genuine performance. It was great to get one on the board for the owners who are great supporters of the yard and we hope to find him another run within the next few weeks,” said Steph.
