Starspangledbanner Colt Flies Home On Debut
Flag Flying (2c Starspangledbanner - Gavota, by Bated Breath) shaped with great promise when justifying favouritism in Sunday’s six furlong novice stakes at Goodwood.
Trained by Harry and Roger Charlton for Juddmonte Farms, the newcomer raced at the back of the field under Richard Kingscote and began to make headway from three furlongs out. Pushed along at the two furlong marker, he was switched left to challenge approaching the final furlong and kept on well to score by four lengths.
Flag Flying joins a rapidly growing list of smart juvenile winners by Starspangledbanner.
