<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>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:
