Fred Archer Racing: Hickory Smokes the Boots of Rivals at Great Yarmouth

Fred Archer Racing: Hickory Smokes the Boots of Rivals at Great Yarmouth As the saying goes: ''All good things come to those who wait.''

At times, I feel as though I have been waiting all my life. I wonder if James Fanshawe has ever thought the same about training gifted two-year-old horses. 

Fanshawe, based at Newmarket, has always been an exceptional trainer of what may seem a small string of thoroughbreds. In fact, yesterday on a windswept Norfolk coast, saw him send out his first two-year-old of the season. 

It was worth the wait as victory came in the form of a potentially smart colt called Hickory. 

Taking part in the 3:20 Great Yarmouth - EBF Future Stayers Novice Stakes (Sire And Dam Restricted Race) (Plus 10 Race) (Class 4) (2yo) (7f 3yds) 7f Good to Soft. 

In an eight-strong field, Hickory was well backed from 11/1 - 7/1 (available at 20/1 with bookmakers the evening before), Tom Marquand gave his son of Free Eagle out of a four-time winning mare a beautiful ride after a slow start. 

Racing in the familiar silks of Fred Archer Racing (Galliard), this May colt was purchased for 125,000g at the yearling sales. 

Hickory finished the race with real gusto winning readily under a hands-and-heels ride, with a little tap behind the saddle to keep him concentrating. 

It was a beautiful introduction and the team must have been pleased with this debut with thoughts of what may come. 

See the full result here. 

Sometimes, the best thing in life, horses and bets are worth the wait. 

Well done to connections.
