Domandlouis (Getaway) Wins The Novices’ Hurdle At Kelso

Son Of Getaway Continues Family Success In Novices Hurdle

The Lucinda Russell-trained Domandlouis (5g Getaway - Drive On Kate, by Milan) made a successful return from a break in Wednesday’s Novices’ Hurdle at Kelso.

A promising third on hurdle debut earlier in the season, the son of Getaway stepped up to two miles and five furlongs at Kelso. Derek Fox positioned the bay behind the leader, asking him to quicken before to out and soon led, going on to score by two and a quarter lengths.

Owned by Two Black Labs and bred by Mairead Curran, Domandlouis is expected to improve over fences, given that his dam is a full-sister to connections’ accomplished chaser Big River (Milan). The son of Getaway’s full-brother sold for €70,000 at last year’s store sales.
