The two-year-old colt Lost In Space notched his third consecutive victory for owners Qatar Racing Limited at Newmarket’s Rowely Mile in the Bentley Motors Nursery Handicap on Thursday. Trained by John Gosden, he was ridden by Qatar Racing Limited’s retained rider Oisin Murphy for his first attempt over a mile.
Quickly up on the pace, Lost In Space took the lead after the first 200 metres. The race was then his for the taking and when asked to accelerate by Murphy in the final 600m, he pulled easily clear to hammer home a four-length victory in front of Olympic Theatre, with Mark Of The Man a length and three quarters further back in third.
Murphy commented after the race, “He’s tough and the yard has done a great job with this horse. He’s on a winning streak and I’m very pleased. He could strengthen up from 2 to 3, so let’s see what the next step is. He relished going a mile today.”
Lost In Space was bred by Mountarmstrong Stud and bought by David Redvers at Tattersalls in December 2019. By the speedy sire Dark Angel, he is the brother of Listed winner Alkasser.
His dam, Alexander Queen is the sister to two speedy horses — the filly Anthem Alexander, winner of the Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) at Royal Ascot, and Dandy Man, winner of the Stan James Palace House Stakes (Group 3) and now a sire.
