‘Legend’ impresses Shane

30th November 2019

Watchable’s owners were in the winners’ enclosure again at Newcastle recently as their grand campaigner provided yet another fine win for them.

We’re pleased to now be able to bring some more pictures from his latest success.

The nine-year-old has a tremendous appetite for racing and was soon in his familiar position, racing prominently under Shane Gray.

Shane and Watchable were clearly going well from an early stage and as the race developed in earnest Watchable galloped on strongly to gain the day.

The son of Pivotal is seemingly always in good form and emphasised the point by sticking on gamely for pressure to see off two strongly fancied rivals.

Watchable’s starting price of 22-1 was definitely on the generous side and it was no surprise to hear one or two of his owners had enjoyed a nice return on their each-way bets.

The ever-green sprinter has come out of the race bouncing and is likely to continue to run with credit this winter as he bids to gain further success for his owners.

Jockey Shane Gray was hugely impressed with Watchable who he described as an “absolute legend”.

It’s hard to disagree!
