Son of Rest wins Junefest Premier Handicap
June 10, 2017
Son Of Rest put up a fine weight-carrying performance to take the featured €50,000 Junefest Handicap at the Curragh.
The son of Pivotal handled soft ground well when opening his account in a Cork maiden earlier this season, and the testing conditions again here certainly proved to his liking.
The remainder of the 11 runners were well strung out behind, with Idyllic Acrylic a further four and a half lengths away in third.
Winning trainer Fozzy Stack said, “That’s his job — sprinting. It probably won’t be soft enough at Ascot so he could go for the six-furlong Listed race (Belgrave Stakes) at the Curragh on Derby weekend.”
