CALAHONDA seems to be at her best when members of the Gongolphin and Racing partnership play golf before she runs! Yesterday after 18 holes on Southwell's tricky golf course in the middle and around the outside of the racecourse, members were celebrating her game win in the last at 12 to 1. Well-ridden by Seb Sanders, she just managed to hold on to her lead to win by a nose. Partnership members Chris Handley and John Lewis had to toss a coin to see who was to get the trophy, as Paul Butler and Brian Day each had a trophy from two of her three wins last year. John won the toss, so Chris will have to wait till next time! Her win was well-celebrated in time-honoured fashion!

Calahonda's win hopefully brings to an end an amazingly frustrating period of time where the horses have been running well, without winning. We have also suffered a lot of injuries this year, with horses such as SUZI'S DECISION, INVASIAN, BRYNFA BOY and EDINBURGH KNIGHT on the sidelines.
