Dylan Thomas 2yo scores for Piggott

Dylan Thomas’s son Pickled Pelican (2g Dylan Thomas-Starship, by Galileo) became another first-crop winner for his sire at Warwick on Monday when scoring for part-owner Lester Piggott. The legendary former jockey owns Pickled Pelican, an impressive two and a quarter length seven-furlong maiden winner, in partnership with Des Scott. Piggott’s son-in-law William Haggas trains the juvenile, who was bred by Tony Hirschfeld. “He possibly just needed his last run, but also ran there as if this extra furlong would suit him, and it has,” said Piggott’s wife Susan, who was on hand to watch the success.
