Toast Of New York returns from three-year absence with win at Lingfield
Jamie Osborne's Toast Of New York returned from a three-year absence with victory at Lingfield.
The six-year-old, winner of the 2014 UAE Derby, had not raced since finishing second by a nose in the Breeders' Cup Classic of 2014.
After an absence of 1,130 days, during which he had a spell at stud in Qatar, he returned for the Betway Conditions Stakes over one mile, two furlongs.
Ridden for the first time by Frankie Dettori, the 2-1 shot won by a length.
He was initially retired following a tendon injury during preparations for the 2015 Dubai World Cup.
Dettori told At The Races: "Jamie has done a great job to get him in this shape first time out.
"He still feels a little rusty, but after three years off I can't emphasise enough how brilliant everyone has been to get him back.
"He's only 70% at the moment, but he still won. That's a step forward and should improve him a lot."
