Son Of Getaway Emerges As Exciting Chasing Prospect
One For Rosie (8g Getaway - Whisky Rise, by Old Vic) made an impressive start for the Kim Bailey stable when running out a wide margin winner on his chase debut on Thursday.
Grade 1 placed over hurdles for Nigel Twiston-Davies and Paul and Clare Rooney, the grey son of Getaway had not been seen since December 2019 and was sent off favourite in Bailey’s colours on return in the Novices’ Chase. He raced prominently throughout the two mile contest and asserted just after the halfway point. Travelling the best of the field with three fences left to jump, he was shaken up on the run-in and kept on strongly under David Bass to win by 20 lengths.
Bred by Distillery Stud, One For Rosie adds to a bumper win and two wins over hurdles. The son of Getaway is one of three black-type performers out of Whisky Rose, who has a four-year-old daughter of Ocovango in training with Donald McCain.
That same afternoon at Sandown, No Getaway (8g Getaway - Nonnetia, by Trempolino) also gained his first win over fences when making all to win the Kingston Handicap Chase under Harry Skelton.
Dan Skelton’s charge had finished second and fourth on his two previous chase starts and was sent off second favourite on his drop back to two and a half miles. Clear at the penultimate fence, he remained unchallenged as he extended his advantage to nine and a half lengths on the line.
Owned by Dick, Keenan, Sawer and Stevenson, No Getaway was bred to excel over fences. Bred by John Dwan, the son of Getaway is a half-brother to Grand National hero One For Arthur (Milan) and Graded chaser Forza Milan (Milan).
