Game Getaway Gelding Records Back-To-Back Wins
Awaythelad (7g Getaway – Jennys Joy, by Oscar) made all to record back-to-back wins in Wednesday’s Novices’ Hurdle at Leicester.
The Ben Pauling-trained bay placed in some competitive contests last season, including behind subsequent Grade 1 winner Crambo, and gained a deserved win when stepping up in trip last time out. He was sent off favourite to follow up under Beau Morgan and began to pick up the pace from three out. Ridden on the run-in, he kept on well to prevail by a head on the line.
Bred by Padraig Pierce, the likeable son of Getaway is owned by Geri and the Pacemarkers.
