Churchill Paddock

Son Of Churchill Gains Straightforward Maiden Win

Young Winston (2g Churchill - Come With Me, by Dansili) became the latest first crop winner by Churchill when scoring over a mile at Ripon on Saturday.

Positioned in midfield by Joanna Mason, the Ed Bethell-trained bay was pushed along to make headway approaching the two furlong marker. Ridden to lead a furlong later, he ran on well to score by three parts of a length, with another five lengths back to the favourite in third.

Owned by Geoffrey Van Cutsem and partners, Young Winston was bred by Whatcote Farm Stud. Churchill has made a strong start at stud, siring two Stakes winners and another two Group 2 performers.
