It's hard when you're named after a global superstar, but Tony Curtis has all the makings of being a star himself on Friday at the Qatar Goodwood Festival. The actor lit up such classics as 'The Outsider', 'The Defiant Ones', and 'The Sweet Smell of Success'. Will his namesake light up Goodwood as well?
QATAR GOODWOOD FESTIVAL - FRIDAY
Just TONY CURTIS representing us in the Mile Handicap at 3:00 tomorrow as the ground has gone against a few of the ones we wanted to run and a couple others missed the cut. TONY CURTIS has had lots of problems and hasn't won for quite some time but he badly needed his first run back at Goodwood and then ran an excellent race in the Bunbury Cup when fourth, only beaten by a length.
That run showed us that he still retains all of his ability and he's still quite lightly raced for his age. The ground is obviously a slight concern but he has decent form on good and likes undulating tracks like this and Epsom (where he won his Maiden). We've only got one dart to throw on Friday so we need to hit the bullseye! Let's hope this chap can deliver!
Don't forget to check back here tomorrow for updates and thoughts on Friday's runners and and also follow @RHannonracing and @stanjamesracing for more exclusive news and content, including beind-the-scenes footage straight from the yard!
