1 Mile Dirt Stake Purse $150.000 Colt & Gelding 2 Year Olds Foaled In LA.
1st Newsnight, trained by Sir Daniel Martin
This stables two year olds must have been on some sort of positive thinking course because anything from the yard seems to be able to win big races at the moment. Making all didnt work in an Allowance in September but coming off just a 16 day break from winning a little allowance at GG he made all and clung on against all the odds for a nose win today. Allowed to dictate a fairly even pace this was win number three for the busy son of Walking Dead.
2nd Functional, trained by Estero Farms
Stalked the leader but just couldnt get past it and went down by the narrowest of margins. Cleary better than the claimer winner he was last time he once more underlined the very thin line between claimer and stakes horse here at HRP.
3rd Inseert The Flirt, trained by Mb Stables
Travelled behind the first two and stayed there not showing any of the lustre he showed when notching up two allowance win from a similar position.
4th Sam A Rye, trained by Mb Stables
In a race that saw very little change in the order he raced in fourth and finished in fourth but was beaten a fair way and may not have got the trip.
