Wobwobwob wins the Silver Cup at Ayr

Wobwobwob made his visit to Ayr a winning won when landing the Silver Cup under a fantastic ride from Holly Doyle.

He was well supported in the betting throughout the day and was sent off a 9/2 favourite for the 25 runner event.

Wob was re-shod at the start as he lost a hind shoe on the way down, he was as cool as a cucumber throughout which is more than could be said for the Ontoawinner crew in the stands.

He was racing towards the rear of the field in the early stages of the contest, at the half way marker, Hollie began to make ground and she gave him the perfect ride to lead in the last 100 yards and land the spoils.

The Ayr Gold Cup festival has always been a special place for us. Fast Shot placed 2nd in a Silver Cup. Flying Pursuit came 3rd in a Gold Cup in 2018 and Staxton won the Silver Cup in 2021. Quiet Reflection also won the listed Harry Roseberry as a 2 year old there, there are too many memories to name.

Landing this race for a second time was very special indeed. Next up – Ayr Gold Cup.

A huge well done to principal owner Andy Finneran and all the team at Adrians. What a magnificent success.
