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's return to action

On Demand makes impressive debut

August race for On Demand?

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.
