Fast Shot Wins At Pontefract
Team Yellow & White descended onto Pontefract today to cheer on the runner up in the Ayr Silver Cup – Fast Shot was lining up in the feature race of the day with 7lb claimer Rachael Richardson on board.
Drawn three, the ground was drying and the official going had changed to “Good”
He broke well and Rachael kept one off the rail in about 4th position for the first 3 furlongs. Turning for home, he had 4 lengths to find on the leaders and the ice cool Rachael eased him up and by the furlong marker , Rachael had pushed him into a share of the lead and went on to score by a half a length
It was a great performance from both horse and jockey and hopefully the handicapper will leave him on a competitive mark.
That’s winner number 8 for the year for OnToAWinner, a fantastic year to date.
