High profile treble on big day

Hampus G takes Norsk St Leger

10 Sep 20: Erichsen Racing stole the show with an excellent treble on this year's Norwegian St. Leger day. Hampus G, a tremendously solid homebred who ran second last year's Derby, landed the Leger, while Purple Ace took Norsk Mesterskap for 2-åringer and Two Times completed the treble by capturing the Unbreakable Handicap. 

Hampus G has probably never been better than right now, and this late developing homebred could well improve again - perhaps we are dealing with a high profile stayer here? He raced with great zest throughout in the St. Leger, staged over a testing 2830 metres. Never far off the pace, he had a shrewd partner in Sandro De Paiva, who reserved his energy for a strong finish. Hampus G led passing the 200 metres mark and, although the favourite Wishformore launched an attack, he was never in any danger in the closing stages. The son of Mutajally won the classic quite snugly by 1 1/4 lengths and he was pricking his ears as soon as he was being eased after the winning post. This is how a classic should be won!

Hampus G prevails in streetfight

01 Jul 20: The King Of Sweden Handicap, a wide open contest over 1750 metres on the dirt track, developed into an absolute streetfight on this Wednesday card at Øvrevoll, and it was the toughness of Hampus G that prevailed. Last year's Derby runner-up stayed on gamely by the inside rail to grab the lead 100 metres out, and he won by a neck from Kildare, with Crossroad Blues a close third. Hampus G was well ridden by Manuel Martinez, who partnered three winners on the day. He guided Hampus G sensibly around, giving him a ground saving trip while keeping him interested throughout. Niggled along going down the back stretch, Hampus G raced very much like a horse who would appreciate a longer trip, and this was a really positive result for the son of Mutajally.

The four-year-old filly Betty, making only her second career start, shaped well as she finished fourth to Ruby Tuesday in the first race on the card, a maiden heat over 1100 metres / dirt, while Two Times ran third to Mongolian Navy in a handicap over 2400 metres / dirt. The good stable form continues!   GS
