Euro Nightmare Lands Rothesay Stakes

STUART Morrison has owned some fantastic racehorses over the years, but the retired Glasgow lawyer described yesterday at Ayr as one of the best days of his life after his filly Euro Nightmare won the third running of the Tennent’s British Stallion Studs EBF Rothesay Stakes, a Listed Race.

Given a canny ride from Paul Mulrennan, the Keith Dalgleish trained horse crept into the £50,000 race and hit the front on the outside and pulled cleat to win by a length and a quarter from Snowy Winter.

Stuart, who 30 minutes earlier had seen Tanasoq, a horse he owns a half share in with Frank Brady, win the five furlong Guinness Handicap, said : “I couldn’t believe  that. I was hoping for second or third place at best so to win came as a shock.

“With Tanasoq also winning it’s given me one of my best ever days in racing.”

Stuart owned Bijou d’Inde who won the 1996 St James’ Palace Stake at Royal Ascot and Quick Ransom who won the 1992 Ebor at York.
