Throwback Thursday Race Of The Day


Another day another throwback and todays race concentrates on the flat and on one of the best up and coming horses on the planet at the moment.

Pinatubo for Charlie Appleby was unleashed last season and from May of last year raced six times and managed t keep his unbeaten record, getting better and better in each contest.

Having started in a novice contest at Wolverhampton he has gone on to land back to back Group Ones and also land a winner at Royal Ascot.

He is a very special horse in the making and as soon as the flat season goes ahead he could end up being the 2000 Guineas and Derby winner.

However, the race we are throwing it back to is his first ever Group One win which came in the Goffs Vincent O'Brien National Stakes at the Curragh.

Off the back of his victory in this contest he was give the best rating for a two year old in the sport, eclipsing Frankel's rating by 2lbs.
