Sirwilliamwallace (Getaway) Wins His Maiden Hurdle at Kelso

Clear Winner Continues Fine Run For Getaway

Sirwilliamwallace (7g Getaway - Mrs Milan, by Milan) continued an excellent run for his sire when running out an impressive winner of Monday’s maiden hurdle at Kelso.

Second on his sole start in a bumper last February, the Sandy Thomson-trained bay was last seen finishing a promising second to Marown (Milan) over hurdles at Ayr. Ryan Mania took the ride once again on Monday and rode the favourite to make all, going clear from three out, racing on to win by 10 lengths on the line.

Owned by Ken McGarrity and bred by John Noonan, Sirwilliamwallace is a half-brother to point-to-point winner West Of Milan (Westerner).
