Steak Dinners All Round After Wagyu Win
Following a sterling season in 2018 Mr Wagyu found life hard in handicaps last year. Therefore, it was great to see him bounce back to winning ways at Ayr on Monday under Joe Fanning.
Mr Wagyu showed all of his usual enthusiasm in the early part of the race and bowled along towards the head of affairs. At the halfway stage he could be seen travelling noticeably well. Joe Fanning asked him for his effort approaching the furlong pole and the horse battled well to win by a neck at the line.
I was especially pleased at this win for Gary Oxtoby and all involved in the New Century Partnership that he runs. They’ve shown plenty of patience in Mr Wagyu (and myself!). I am sure that Mr Wagyu can reward them further with the season fully up and running.
