Sky Sports News teamed up with Great British Racing to buy a racing horse in a bid to show viewers what it takes to develop a race horse.

Viewers have since voted for the filly's name and colours and the horse, On Demand, is on course to make her racing debut later this year.

On Demand comeback confirmed

Trainer Andrew Balding is confident Sky Sports News' horse On Demand will turn potential into victories on the track during the coming year. A lung infection has kept the filly out of action since her debut but she is nearing full fitness now.

On Demand nears return

Sky Sports News racehorse On Demand is nearing a return to the track, following her debut in September. A slight injury has since then limited her work but trainer Andrew Balding, who is overseeing On Demand's progress at his Park House Stables in Kingsclere says she will be back in action soon.

On Demand makes impressive debut

On Demand was unplaced but ran a race full of promise on her debut in the EBF & Sam Sheppard Quidhamption Maiden Fillies' Stakes at Salisbury. The two-year-old was still in with a shout with a furlong to go but weakened in the final stages of the race to finish sixth, just a couple of lengths behind eventual winner Rosehill Artist. Her jockey David Probert was delighted with the way she ran and is hopeful there is much more to come from the filly.

Debut in sight

On Demand's training has stepped up ahead of her racecourse debut. The filly produced her best piece of work yet, cantering six furlongs on trainer Andrew Balding's new all-weather gallop and he estimates she is three weeks away from being ready.
