|Stormy Morning returns to the track and only beaten just over a length|
|DATE POSTED: 11/01/2014|
After having a training setback last March, 8YO gelding Stormy
Morning had his comeback run on Friday night (10th Jan) at
Wolverhampton - and almost won!
Despite having been off the track for over 340 days, Stormy Morning, our smashing eight-year-old with Philip Kirby bounced back to finish 3rd at Wolverhampton on Friday night.
Stormy Morning, ridden by Eva Moscrop, ran over a mile and six furlongs on his seasonal debut, with shareholders well aware that the gelding was sure to need this first run back after a long absence from the track. However, we were in for a shock, as the gelding rounded the bottom turn looking like he was going the best out of the field.
He made up plenty of ground and went
into second place a furlong out, setting out to chase the leader
down. However, just in the last 50 yards he did eventually get
a little tired and had to settle for third, being passed in the last
stride for second.
