Staxton flies home to win at Ripon!
Staxton burst back to form to win at Ripon’s 6th of August meeting, recording a very fast time in the process!
The Equiano gelding broke on level terms and settled nicely behind the leaders, with a lone horse, Watchable going the far side! As the race unfolded Staxton started to make his move and as he hit the front of the pack it was clear Watchable on the far side was a few lengths clear but Staxton flew home to get up on the line, winning in a long awaited photo by a nose!
Well done to all his owners on your success, he’s been some horse and has now won in every year he’s raced from 2 to 5 which is some feat, he’s a great horse!
With a fantastic win for Joe’s Way yesterday, Tims horses are clearly in rude health at the moment.
Thank you and well done to Tim Easterby, Duran Fentiman 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!
