Starspangledbanner Conformation

Promising Son Of Starspangledbanner Quickens Clear

A drop back in trip saw Tyson (2g Starspangledbanner - Ach Alannah, by Marju) run out a deserving winner of Wednesday’s five furlong maiden at Bath.

Narrowly beaten on three previous occasions, the Richard Hannon-trained grey was sent off favourite under Thore Hammer Hansen. Chasing the leaders, he was ridden to lead approaching the final furlong and ran on strongly to win by two and a quarter lengths.

Tyson completed the first leg of a quickfire double for Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, with Royal Patronage (Wootton Bassett) landing the Group 3 Acomb Stakes just ten minutes later. John Doyle bred the smart son of Starspangledbanner.
