HORSE RACING: Sly has two winners in the space of 10 minutesThorney trainer Pam Sly celebrated two winners in the space of 10 minutes over the hurdles yesterday, November 10.Fullards, a winner on his last outing at Fakenham in March, came home a 16-1 winner of the 3.30pm at Lingfield under Gerard Tumelty and it wasn't long before Sly was celebrating again.San Antonio, who showed promise over hurdles two years ago, was ridden to a 9-1 victory by David Dennis in the 3.40pm at Bangor.Fullards jumped better than 11-8 favourite Wee Anthony to win by three-quarters-of-a-length.Although normally a front-runner, he was held up until hitting the front with two hurdles to go and then kept on well under pressure from the favourite.Sly's representative Louise Allan said: "Fullards seemed to be carrying a fair bit of condition and we thought he might have needed the run."That should have put him right now for the future."San Antonio has been running on the flat recently but made a pleasing return to hurdles.He was always prominent and was never troubled after taking the lead with three hurdles to go.09 November 2006
