Staxton bolts up in the prestigious Great St Wilfrid handicap at Ripon!

Staxton took home the coveted Great St Wilfrid handicap at Ripon at their 16th of August meeting!

The Equiano gelding broke well and quickly took up a prominent position of the stand side group. Staxton always seemed to be travelling nicely and as the race unfolded Staxton started to power forward on the rail and took up the lead to win by 3/4 of a length in a smart performance!

Well done to all his owners on your success, he deserved a win in a race like that and it’s great he delivered! Thank you and well done to Tim Easterby, Duran Fentiman who gave him a peach of a ride and all the team at Great Habton!

Staxton was purchased by the Ontoawinner buying team and Tim Easterby at the 2017 Goffs Breeze-Up Sale for £24,000!

Well done again to connections on your deserved success, he’s some horse and deserved a win in a race like this! Enjoy these victories as they’re very special!
