Qatar Racing Limited’s DESERT LION won the Bet totequadpot @totesport.com Handicap at Chelmsford, UK on Saturday 26 October 2019. The three-year-old bay gelding of LOPE DE VEGA did well enough to secure his second win of the season. While he was held up in the early stages, he was then led by his jockey Dylan Hogan to switch right and make headway between his rivals inside the closing stages to win the mile-long race for three-year-olds and older rated 0-75. The David Simcock-trained winner finished one and a half lengths ahead of the Roger Varian-trained BOBBY BISCUIT who was ridden by J F Egan. The James Tate-trained CAMELOT RAKTI completed the frame in third under P J McDonald.
DESERT LION was bred by the Sorella Bella Partnership.
