Emaraaty Ana

Emaraaty Ana did well to finish third in the Nunthorpe Stakes, coming from off the pace in a race in which the pace held up well. Settled back in the field early on as The Platinum Queen and Highfield Princess went forward, he was 11th of the 13 runners as they passed the three-furlong marker. Always tracking the winner Highfield Princess, he didn’t travel as well as that rival down to the furlong marker, and he got tapped for toe as she picked up and challenged The Platinum Queen, but he stuck to his task well on the near side, finishing off his race well to take third place behind the two early prominent racers, just in front of Khaadem, who also raced handily.

This was another good run in the Nunthorpe from Kevin Ryan’s horse, 12 months after he had finished second in the race behind Winter Power. On his subsequent run last year, he went to Haydock and won the Sprint Cup, and that race is the obvious target for him again this season. He raced here as if he would appreciate the step back up to six furlongs, and he is one for one at Haydock.
