THE Investec Derby is the holy grail for so many in racing. For trainer Andrew Balding, it has even more meaning. His father Ian prepared the brilliant Mill Reef to win the Epsom Classic in 1971. Now Betway ambassador Andrew reveals in a new video what it would mean to continue his family’s special tradition – and win the great race with Kameko in 2020.
In the promo, recalling Mill Reef, the trainer says: “He was one of the great horses of the 70s. Of a whole generation, really.”
He also opens up on his poor record in the contest, saying: “If you fluff your lines on Derby day, you’ll never get it back. But there’s no way we’ve had a candidate as strong as Kameko before.”
