Peter Camp – Ruffian Stakes Winner Is Alive And Well

Mild post-race distress

Saturday’s Wilgerbosdrift Listed Ruffian Stakes winner Almond Sea emptied her manger on Sunday morning and is very much alive and well, according to the Tony Peter Team who provided the Sporting Post with photographic evidence to that effect.

The daughter of Canford Cliffs maintained her unbeaten record and made it three from three when storming to her first stakes success on Saturday.

At the pull-up she was reluctant to return to the winner’s circle and jockey Calvin Habib was forced to unsaddle and to get stable staff to assist with a hose-down.

The Stipes report indicates mild post-race distress.

Regrettably rumours did the rounds overnight that the filly had passed away.. The Sporting Post received a number of calls in that regard.

Thank-you to the Peter team for providing the photograph.
