Westerner head shot

Son Of Westerner Doubles Up Under A Penalty

Kingofthewest (6g Westerner - Other Salsa, by Kingsalsa) made all to record his second success over hurdles at Exeter on Friday.

Successful on rules debut last month, the David Pipe-trained bay followed up with a fine second next time out and was ridden by Fergus Gillard once again on Friday. Shaken up from two out, he kept on well to beat Pachacuti (Walk In The Park) by two lengths and three quarters.

Kingofthewest was bought by connections after finished second in a point-to-point on his sole start for Donnchadh Doyle. A €65,000 store purchase by Monbeg Stables, the son of Westerner was bred by Patrick Cashman.
