Son Of Getaway Delivers In Novices Hurdle
The Colin Tizzard-trained Sherborne (5g Getaway - Luck Of The Deise, by Old Vic) built on previous promise to land Friday’s two mile Novices’ Hurdle at Lingfield.
Runner-up in a bumper last season, the son of Getaway finished fourth on his hurdle debut earlier this month and was sent off joint favourite under Brendan Powell at Lingfield. Chasing the leaders throughout, the bay improved to lead from the second last and was ridden from the final flight. Keeping on well, he held off his fellow market leader by a neck on the line.
Owned by Sharp, Nicholas and Kennington, Sherborne was purchased by his trainer with Peter and Ross Doyle as a store for £105,000. The half-brother to Scottish National victor Joe Farrell was bred by Mrs EA Pendarves.
