Derby Day victory for Soto Sizzler
on 01 June 2019

5 weeks after his last course and distance victory, Soto Sizzler produced an equally impressive performance to win the 1m4f Class 2 Handicap at Epsom on Derby Day! 

With Jimmy Quinn back in the saddle, who won on this son of Mastercraftsman at Glorious Goodwood last year, Soto Sizzler was well positioned on the outside of runners in mid division. He travelled well and cruised to the front in the last couple of furlongs. He had to keep finding to fend off the challenging Byron Flyer, but ultimately pulled away to secure a 1 1/2 length victory. 

This was the 4yo gelding's 3rd career win and, with low mileage, he looks to have further improvement in him. Today's win came off a mark of 88, having risen 5lbs in the weights for his last victory.

Congratulations to owner Ian Heseltine and a big well done to the team at home!
