for the latest ARO Rating
as he is known in the yard, also joined us from
Kelanne Stud in 2003 for his second full season
of racing. He came 2nd to Amerela at Huntingdon,
then came fifth at Newbury in a big race on
Dubai day and the highlight of his season was
when he came from well back to win over 1m1f on
the all weather at Wolverhampton in August.
his stablemate Notid, 2004 was not a good
season, with just three placings during August,
in particular just being beaten into third by
Notid at Lingfield
under Nicola Wynn.
2005 was a very good
season for Saffy. It brought him his second
victory, when he led from the start at Fontwell
over 2 miles. He raced with low weights in
handicap races and was second at both
Wolverhampton (1m 6f) and Market Rasen (2
miles) and came third at Lingfield (1m 5f).
Never hit top form during 2006 with his
best result 3rd over 2 miles at Exeter.
He looked after debutant
jockey Jo Clay in her maiden race at Stratford in
Anganate Safinat –
still performing well in 2007 including twice beaten
into 2nd having made all, by Mushammer at
Exeter and Lingfield
