Son Of Westerner Makes Promising Start Over Hurdles
Western Zephyr (5g Westerner - Beneficial Breeze, by Beneficial) ran out a commanding winner of Monday’s maiden hurdle at Ludlow.
A wide margin winner on his sole start for Francesca Poste, the son of Westerner went on to make a winning start for Charlie Longsdon in a bumper last season. Sent off favourite to make a winning hurdle debut, he was ridden prominently by Sean Bowen and asserted from four out. Pushed clear from the second last, he was ridden on the run-in and kept on strongly to score by six lengths, with another 12 back to the third horse.
Owned by the Swanee River Partnership, Western Zephyr was bred by Longrove Stud.
