Son Of Getaway Makes All To Impress Over Hurdles

Getaround (5g Getaway – Playing Around, by Act One) proved not for catching in Tuesday’s Novices’ Hurdle at Exeter, where he made all to win by 14 lengths.

The Ella Pickard-trained grey was making his first start over hurdles, having previously won his point-to-point and a bumper impressively in December. Tuesday also marked his first attempt over two miles and seven furlongs and clearly appreciated the test of stamina, going clear from two out. Bryan Carver guided him to an impressive success as his rivals did their best to narrow the gap, but to no avail.

Owned by Garry Wilson, the son of Getaway was bred by Bloomsbury Stud and is a half-brother to Listed bumper winner Bigbadandbeautiful.
