The Mohamed bin Abdulla Nasser al-Attiyah-bred and owned South Audley won the racingtv.com Restricted Maiden Stakes at Nottingham racecourse on Thursday.
The Richard Hannon-trained colt was on his third career start and he won cosily under a hands and heels ride from jockey Pat Dobbs.
Drawn in stall 7 in the six-furlong Class 6 race for two-year-olds, South Audley was smartly away as the field split into two groups. He led the larger group up the centre of the racecourse. Two furlongs out, Dobbs asked the bay colt for an effort and the latter quickly drew clear of his rivals before being eased up close home to win by a comfortable two-and-a-quarter-lengths. It was an impressive performance by South Audley, who has progressed with each run. Last Hoorah could manage second for trainer Archie Watson and jockey Hollie Doyle. The K R Burke-trained and Clifford Lee-ridden Liamarty Dreams finished two further lengths behind in third.
South Audley is the second foal out of the unraced Seefat, who is a half-sister to listed winner Tazahum. She comes from the family of Group Two winner Maraahel. His sire Aclaim stands at The National Stud and 2021 sees his first crop of two-year-olds.
