Getaway Mare Looks A Class Apart On Debut
Merry Mistress (4f Getaway - Merry Missed, by Vinnie Roe) emerged as a smart prospect on Thursday when taking the mares’ bumper at Hereford for the in-form Tom Symonds team.
Positioned in midfield by Tom Bellamy, the G Saville-owned mare improved to track the leaders from five furlongs out and made further headway to lead approaching the final furlong. Shaken up, she ran on well inside the final furlong and won by eight and a half lengths, as the favourite took second 18 lengths clear of the field.
The daughter of Grange Stud sire Getaway becomes the first winner bred by Leonard MacMahon out of Merry Missed.
