KARKY SCHULTZ became the yard's first winner of the flat season and also recorded his first flat win on the turf. He has now won a hurdle race and flat race on the turf and has been schooled over fences so is aiming to win a chase to get his hat trick of wins. He has also won a flat race on the all weather so he is a very versatile horse. He was given a good ride yesterday by promising apprentice Lee Topliss and there is a chance they could be reunited in another apprentice race at Pontefract next week. The ground could be an issue though as it was quick enough for him yesterday so he will need some rain before next week for him to run there.
