Son Of Milan Extends Unbeaten Record With Wide Margin Win
Iron Bridge (6g Milan - Chit Chat, by Bob Back) produced his most impressive performance yet to extend his unbeaten record at Worcester on Tuesday.
A debut winner of a point-to-point flat race for Damian Murphy, the son of Milan made a successful start for Jonjo O’Neill this season and was sent off favourite to follow up after a break. The bay raced prominently throughout under Jonjo O’Neill Junior and was pushed along from three out. Leading with two flights left to jump, he drew clear approaching the last and needed little encouragement to score by all of 22 lengths.
Owned by executors of the late Trevor Hemmings, Iron Bridge was bought by Highflyer Bloodstock as a three-year-old for €58,000. Bred by Sean Murphy, he has provided important updates for his two-year-old full-brother and yearling brother by Vadamos.
