Redkirk Warrior looking to rewrite record books in Newmarket

Only five horses in the history of the Newmarket Handicap have won the event twice, with REDKIRK WARRIOR looking to re-write the history books and become the first to ever win the time honoured sprint for an unprecedented third consecutive occasion.

Those to win it twice include:

  • ASPEN – 1880, 1881

  • CORRECT – 1960, 1961
  • RAZOR SHARP – 1982, 1983
