Son Of Getaway Justifies Strong Support In Maiden Hurdle

A step up in trip saw point-to-point winner Stellar Stream (6g Getaway - Gaelic River, by Deploy) add a maiden hurdle win to his record on Wednesday.

Fourth last time out, Kayley Woollacott’s charge was well-supported to get off the mark under rules in in the maiden hurdle over three miles and two furlongs at Hereford. Racing prominently throughout under Ben Godfrey, the bay led from three out and was ridden from the next. Soon clear, he won by four and a half lengths in comfortable fashion.

Owned by Mrs Jane Slough, Stellar Stream began his career with Neil McLean, for whom he won a maiden at Buckfastleigh. The son of Getaway was bred by JPN Parker and is a full-brother to black-type performer Deploy The Getaway (Getaway).
