On the Post
A brief visit to Ascot races today yielded an emotional afternoon as the Spey From Speyside Distillery Whisky Handicap Chase had a dramatic end to it.
From flag fall Fruity O Rooney went at it at the head of affairs with Loose Chips getting the upper hand in the early exchanges. He pressed on in front from the 11th until Fruity O Rooney took over heading to three out.
Turning in Fruity O Rooney had kicked on taking a couple of lengths out of the pursuers only for Noel Fehily to rally aboard Loose Chips regaining the lead at the last and going two lengths clear with 75yds to run.
There drama didnt stop there though with Fruity O Rooney not giving up and responding to all Jamie Moores urgings, he battled all the way to the line and literally led on it !!!!
In the other races on the card there was smooth wins for Tenor Nivernais and Winner Massagot, however there isnt many photos of them as I was out in the country taking photos of the action.
