Fast Shot ran in the Betfred (Class 2) Handicap today at Newcastle live on CH4. David Allan was aboard the Tim Easterby trained 4 Year Old.
After being unracable yesterday , Newcastle was given the Go-Ahead early this morning. The ground being described as heavy, Fast Shot had conditions to suit.
Fast Shot was drawn in stall 15, looking at the 1st race, it looked the ideal draw as all of the field drifted towards near side where he would be running.
Fast Shot broke smartly to lie a length off the leader , getting a nice toe up the rail. He stayed up with the pace and David got to work 2 and a half furlongs out. As he always does, he responded in great fashion, and showed staying power to collar the leader at the half furlong mark, going on to win by a length and a half.
This was an excellent performance from a very game horse. A big well done to all of his owners, this is what racing is about : enjoy!
