PEA SHOOTER gets up on the line at Newcastle


Pea Shooter: got up in the final stride

PEA SHOOTER stayed on really well to take the closing five-furlong Handicap at Newcastle last night.

Although somewhat awkward out of the stalls, he was soon travelling well towards the rear of the centre group in the hands of David Allan. Ridden along from the furlong pole, he stayed on strongly to get up in the final stride.

It had been a while since the gelded son of Piccolo, now a nine-year-old, had last got his head in front and he was having his first run following wind surgery last August.

Delighted to see him in the winner’s enclosure and congratulations to owner Mrs Andrea Mallinson.
