More To Come From Son Of No Nay Never
Friday saw Brooklyn Nine Nine (3g No Nay Never - Mamba Noire, by Wootton Bassett) gain a deserved maiden win on his three-year-old return at Newcastle.
The Richard Fahey-trained bay finished a close second on both his juvenile starts and was sent off favourite to make it third time lucky under Oisin Orr. Racing over six furlongs, he chased the leaders in the early stages and led approaching the two furlong marker. Ridden when challenged before the final furlong, he kept on well to prevail by a head on the line.
“His two runs last year were very good,” Oisin Orr commented after the race. “I think he needed that today so he's going to come on a bit for it.”
The son of No Nay Never is the first foal bred by Powerstown Stud out of Group 2 performer Mamba Noire (Wootton Bassett).
