Mahler Head Shot

Three-timer for Gustave Mahler

The classy Gustave Mahler (7g Mahler-Kloetta, by Grand Lodge) notched his third win this summer when scoring at Newton Abbot on Tuesday.

The admirable Mahler gelding was partnered by champion jockey Richard Johnson when defying a penalty to take the 2m 2f novices’ hurdle.

Campaigned well by trainer Alastair Ralph, he also won novice hurdles at Worcester in May and Southwell the following month.

“He is a game sort and can win again,” commented the Racing Post after this latest success.

Gustave Mahler was bred by Liam O’Rourke.
