jjGoogling a runner Luisa Tetrazzini 5.50 Wolverhampton Born in Florence, Luisa Tetrazzini (1871-1940) was an Italian coloratura soprano of great international fame who made her debut in Florence in 1890. Her voice was remarkable for its phenomenal flexibility, thrust, steadiness and thrilling tone.

Bets on other runners stand at the prices quoted at the time the bets were struck.

jjHorses for courses It may have been a long way from home, but something about Goodwood really appealed to Zuhair. Perhaps it was the sea air, perhaps it was the scenery, but of his ten career victories six were gained on the Sussex Downs.

The David Nicholls-trained gelding won the same race - the 5f Charlton Handicap at the Glorious meeting - four years running (1999-2002), scoring for the final time at the age of nine under Nicholls' wife Alex Greaves. The race was then named in Zuhair's honour, although he failed to win it under that title.
