“Shock at Lingfield as the infamous Grand National stalling Battle Group actually started and beat a rival!”
When, a few days ago, I read that Battle Group - who had been retired due to having “lost the love for racing” in April this year - would return today, 23 July 2014, I was really mad. I think he deserved that retirement.
Welcome back Battle, stay healthy.
