MENDOZA was bought at the sales last autumn and makes his debut for us at Chelmsford tonight. He runs in a 6 furlong novice race and is drawn 7 of the 8 runners. He was gelded after we bought him and turned away for a long break over the winter. He has taken a while to come to himself and come in his coat this spring. We will see how he goes today but we will learn more about him after the race and see where to go next.
