Semper Augustus lines up at HQ in the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes
The Ed Walker-trained Semper Augustus is having a crack at the very valuable Book 3 sales race at Newmarket on Saturday. It has long been the plan to aim at this 6 furlong target and we are delighted that champion jockey Oisin Murphy is in the saddle. There are 30 runners and he will break from stall 19. The rain softened ground will be an unknown and the cavalry charge is obviously a tough ask. However Ed has always thought he is better than what he has shown so far on the track and given the money on offer we thought it was worth a shot!
The best of luck to his owners.
