Britannia Winner Thesis Bound For Hong Kong After Sale

|

Roger Charlton | Emma Berry

Thesis (GB) (Kingman {GB}), the winner of the Britannia S. at Royal Ascot last month, has been sold and will race on in Hong Kong. The Roger and Harry Charlton-trained runner was previously owned by his breeder, Juddmonte. Third to subsequent G2 Queen's Vase second Zechariah (Ire) (Nathaniel {Ire}) when unveiled at Sandown last July, the colt ran second three times at Newbury, Lingfield, and Doncaster from April to June of this year prior to his Royal Ascot heroics.

Roger Charlton said, “Thesis has been sold to race in Hong Kong. We half expected it, as Britannia winners and those who finish close up are invariably sold to race there.

“Where else do you go over here? You can tell owners they will win a group race, but there are not too many of them for horses rated like him and the prize money is greater over there.

“It is a shame, but there we are. What can you do.”
