MISTER MAYDAY WINS HIS THIRD
The goon gets a brilliant ride and scores cosily
Under one of the best rides imaginable, MISTER MAYDAY won at Lingfield this afternoon for his 3rd victory.
Bred by David Allan and Barnane Stud, the son of Kheleyf is described as a "goon" by his trainer George Baker - clearly with affection. He had planted on the way to the stalls requiring an excellent effort from a stalls handler, running up the course to collect him and coaxe him to the start.
Pat Cosgrave had him relatively switched off behind, need a gap and finding a very narrow one. MISTER MAYDAY went through that bravely and with no a single flick of the whip took the lead to win by a short head, but actually a shade cosily.
His dam SOXY DOXY now has two 3 times winners from her first two foals. She has a promising IFFRAAJ 2 year old and is in foal to DARK ANGEL
