|Sandwith shows he's no back number with a good performance at Hamilton - and he may run again in two days time.|
|DATE POSTED: 28/08/2011|
Sandwith has had a difficult time of it
in recent months, with nothing much going right for the veteran
sprinter, but Hamilton on Friday night gave him the opportunity to
show that he still retains ability to win races.
Sandwith has a large following in Scotland - and rightly so, as the gelding runs for fun in the Borders and Scotland right through the season - having already racked up ten runs this season. However, he'd failed to set the pulse racing on a few occasions this year.
That all changed on Friday evening when on his eleventh run things came together for the gelding. Over two out he came with what looked like a winning move from the outside, only to get collared by the favourite in the last half a furlong. He was nevertheless over two and three-quarter lengths clear of the rest of the field, finishing second at 7/1.
Sandwith is the type to find his form and then keep it for his next few runs, so we're really looking forward to next week, where he already holds an entry for another sprint race at Carlisle on Wednesday.
Over 20 shareholders clapped and cheered Sandwith back into the winners enclosure after the race - far more than the winner managed to muster! Good luck to all his shareholders for next week - now the old chap has found his form, lets hope he can go one better.
UPDATE AUGUST 31ST
Sandwith faces 13 rivals tonight at Carlisle, and with the gelding having come out of his race really well over the weekend, another big run could be on the cards.
