Huddle off the mark

November 28, 2019

Huddle (Aussie Rules ex Purest) shed her maiden tag over a mile at Lingfield this afternoon.

The 3yo filly was drawn wide, but was happy to settle towards the rear of the field as the leaders set what looked to be a pretty fast pace. Her jockey, 7lb claimer Pierre-Louis Jamin, gave this filly a lovely ride and sensibly waited until the home turn before pulling her out and sweeping past the lot of them to win by the smallest of distances.

Huddle has always shown some very promising work at home, but until now had not managed to get her head in front. Hopefully this win will give her a confidence boost and we could be seeing her out again next week.

Congratulations to owner/breeders Mr & Mrs Welby on this much deserved win!
