    Bit of a gamble and reward for some consistent runs by the horse.

    <br>Thanks everyone – trainer was very confident about his form going into the race and he got a dream run which made the difference from last time.

    In fact if I’d written a script, that would have been it – getting a spot on the rail has looked crucial at Wolves this week. Seven races yesterday and nothing drawn higher than 4 won any of them – and in five of those stalls 1 to 4 provided the forecast.  

    Might go to Kempton on Friday with a penalty before he gets a well earned holiday.

    Congratulations. SP was 5/1 so hope you did well. The horse is consistent and deserved a win after some decent efforts at Wolves. It seems better treated on AW than turf. What are future plans after the Kempton possibilty? Are you still mulling fences?

    <br>He’ll have at least three months off after one more run.

    No chance he’ll go over fences now, although he might end up jumping one day, as he’s been promised to a junior three day event champion as a novice horse when his racing days are over.

    I wouldn’t rule out a run or two over hurdles next year if he no longer has the speed to compete on the flat, but on present evidence, he’s still up to paying his way on turf and AW.

    <br>Thanks again everyone – Rab Havlin has been on board for all four wins since I bought this horse and he knows him better than anyone. He’s ridden winners for me before this as well and I’ve always rated him.

    Mind you, if I owned any of Salute’s ten rivals this evening, I’d be unhappy with the way they allowed Salute a soft time close to a slow pace.

    Never previously owned a horse that won three races in a calendar year – it’s fun (and a lot cheaper than having one that never wins) !

    Well done apracing, very impressive, maybe the handicapper wasn’t so far wide of the mark a few weeks ago when you had a moan at him. In hindsight maybe he should have gone up a few pounds more :biggrin:
