More success for Getaway
There was another first-crop point-to-point winner for Getaway at the weekend when Colin Bowe saddled Getabird (4g Getaway-Fern Bird, by Revoque) to victory. Carrying the colours of Walter Connors, the four-year-old scored by four lengths at Largy in good style. “Getabird looks a smart four-year-old who has the gears to drop back in trip,” commented p2p.ie. From the family of Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Long Run, Getabird was bred by Patrick Connell. Getaway is also responsible for recent winning pointing debutant All Currencies (4m Getaway-Splendid Presence, by Presenting) and Agamemmon (4g Getaway-Oscar Road, by Oscar), an eight-length scorer in Britain.
