Churchill Paddock

Son Of Churchill Makes All To Impressive Maiden Win

The Charlie Hills-trained Golden War (2g Churchill - Gertrude Gray, by Hurricane Run) made all to justify favouritism in Tuesday’s Novice Stakes at Beverley.

Lady Bamford’s homebred bay finished second twice previously and appeared to appreciate the change in tactics on Tuesday. Pushed along to go clear approaching the final furlong, he was ridden out to score by four lengths.

Speaking after the race, winning rider Paul Mulrennan said, “Golden War is a relentless galloper. The track suited him. Hopefully there will be more to come next year.”
