Getaway Mare Beats The Boys Over Fences
Getawaytonewbay (7m Getaway - Boozy Lee, by Dr Massini) appears to have a bright future over fences, having won her second chase start at Stratford on Friday.
Twice a winner between the flags in Ireland, the daughter of Getaway is now trained by Matt Sheppard, for whom she finished third on her chase debut last month. She was the sole mare in a field of 13 for Friday’s two mile and one furlong Novices’ Handicap Chase, with Stan Sheppard positioning the chesnut towards the back of the field. Making headway from four out, she led at the second last and ran on well to beat the favourite by three lengths and three quarters.
Owned by Tony Scrivin and Lost In The Summer Wine, Getawaytonewbay was bred by John Gaul.
