Getaway Conformation

Arthur another winning newcomer for Getaway

Trainer Philip Hobbs unveiled another exciting debut winner for Getaway at Hereford on Monday in the shape of bumper scorer Arthur Mac (5g Getaway-Orchardstown Moss, by Lord Of Appeal).

Champion jockey Richard Johnson was riding the five-year-old, bred by James Purcell, who forged clear in the final strides to win with ease.

The Racing Post commented: “From the family of Bula, (Arthur Mac) showed plenty of determination to make a winning debut, having a hard enough race in the process but showing a good level of form. He looked a sitting duck as they turned for home but he dug deep and probably had a bit more in hand than the winning margin indicates. He looks a nice prospect.”
