Shaladar another for Kevin
16th June 2022
The Kevin Ryan horses are on fire at the moment with Shaladar the latest horse in winning action for Kevin and our owners.
The son of Shalaa has been running well this season over shorter distances and really enjoyed the step up to a mile yesterday at Hamilton.
Settled in rear under a great ride from Tom Eaves, Shaladar was soon travelling notably well and relaxed well for Tom towards the rear of the field.
As the race developed up Hamilton’s long straight, Tom brought Shaladar with a steady run down the outside with our latest winner catching the eye with the way he travelled through to challenge for the lead.
Hitting the front over a furlong out and entering unchartered waters stamina wise, Shaladar had a tough question to ask but really put his head down late on to fight off the runner-up in the closing stages, much to the delight of his horse racing syndicate.
There were some very happy scenes in the winners enclosure afterwards as owners enjoyed their horse’s first win in the Scottish sunshine.
A horse who’s ran well many times already for his owners, this success was much deserved as Shaladar proved another winner for Kevin at Hamilton.
With the extra distance a big help, this interesting three-year-old looks a handicapper to keep on the right side of in the weeks and months to come as he bids to build on this strong winning effort.
