Getaway Mare Brings Up The Double
Tokyo Getaway (6m Getaway – Golden Blossom, by Anshan) completed back-to-back wins when running out an easy winner of Thursday’s Rated Novice Chase at Clonmel.
A point-to-point winner last April, she gained a deserved win over hurdles last time out, having finished second on her two previous starts. The sole mare in the field on her latest start, she was ridden towards the back of the field by Jonathan Moore, improving into third with four fences left to jump and led approaching the second last. Staying on well, she extended her advantage to eight lengths on the line, with minimum fuss.
Trained by Gavin Cromwell for Ann Finnegan, Tokyo Getaway was bred by Susan Bredin.
