The second day of the Chester May Festival proved to be a red letter day for SackvilleDonald. Firstly Venice Beach ran out the impressive winner of the Derby Trial. His dam, the Danehill mare Danedrop, was purchased privately for his owners by SackvilleDonald. Venice Beach now heads to the Derby as a leading contender.
Shortly after the Derby Trial, Dragon’s Tail ran out the very impressive four and a half length winner of the 2yo maiden. Trained by local trainer, Tom Dascombe and part owned by footballing legend Michael Owen, Dragon’s Tail was a 30,000 euro yearling purchase by Ed at Tattersalls Ireland.
