    Effervescent thoroughbred gelding Voolra is excelling at the higher levels, scoring a 70.92% inter I win with Lucy Baker to bring his post-lockdown tally to three.

    “After all those years of wishing he didn’t have so much energy, I’m now glad of it,” said Lucy. “He’s thrives on work and tries his heart out. It was a tough class with some great combinations – I’m delighted.”

    Lucy has endured a challenging few months, after being sidelined with a wear-and-tear-type back injury and losing her promising prix st georges (PSG) gelding Ifya Like to a sudden, short illness.
