Pearl Acclaim, our grand 9-year-old gelding returned to Southwell today to take his chance in the 6 Furlong Sprint Handicap. Trained by the inform David Griffiths, he was ridden by Phil Dennis who claims 3lb.
Pearl broke superbly well from his wide draw (stall 10) and was soon on the heels of the front running Jazz Legend and Alligator. Phil had Pearl travelling well until the 2-furlong pole, he kicked Pearl in the belly and Pearl responded well, taking up the running and leading all the way to the line to win by ½ length.
A fantastic performance from the old boy who still shows his love for the game. We are delighted for his loyal owners. That was winner number 2 of 2019 for Ontoawinner. Check out his profile as we have limited shares remaining in this gelding : www.ontoawinner.net/syndicate/pearl-acclaim
