Suitcase ‘N’ Taxi wins at Pontefract


Suitcase ‘N’ Taxi lined up in the Class 5 Colonel And Mrs Padgett Handicap yesterday at Pontefract. He was an unlucky loser last time out when he hung left in the final strides to finish second to our own Dandy Highwayman at Ripon.

With David Allan aboard, he was drawn in stall 10 for the 11 runner race. A good start was imperative and he duly obliged. David kicked him from the gates into an early lead come the bend. He kept him up to his work in the home straight and he went on to win by just under 3 lengths, an excellent performance and a well-deserved victory for the Major Cadeaux gelding.

Elsewhere, we had 2 other runners on a busy day for Ontoawinner. Corinthia Knight was seeking a treble to start his racing career and finished an excellent second to a very smart performer in a very competitive race. He is a really nice type and will now head to Royal Ascot. Yeeoow ran at Pontefract and performed well for a long way before fading in the home straight. His turn will come. Aguerooo was withdrawn from the same race due to unsuitable ground.
