Forest Row impresses at Newbury

22 Apr 2012

Forest Row, our homebred 1/2 brother to Presvis by Cockney Rebel, sold at Tattersalls October sales two years ago,  broke his maden in impressive style on his first start as 3 year old on Saturday, 21st April at Newbury. He was short in the betting for both his starts (separated by over five months) in Newbury last year over firm ground, but lived up to expectations this time, winning the second division of Dubai Duty Free Maiden stakes. The bay gelding was relishing the soft ground and finding plenty after travelling well.

After the race his trainer Clive Cox told "We were a little bit unsure if he would handle the ground as well as he did. He´s bred to be a good horse and is a half-brother to Presvis. He got a little heavy at the back end of last year so we´ve gelded him."

Thus Forest Row become the second winner for his sire Cockney Rebel from 4 runners this week after the 3 year old filly Cockney Sparrow run to an amazing 7 legth victory at Beverley on the 18st April.
