Captain Jameson Scores on the Knavesmire
2018 has been a great year for us at our local racecourse, York, thanks to big race wins from Signora Cabello and El Astronaute (who scored at both the Dante and Ebor meeting) and Captain Jameson got in on the act to win on Friday there too.
2018 has been a bit tough for the horse as fast ground in the summer months meant that we didn’t get to see as much of him as we would like. However, here on a soft surface in a fast run race he showed just what he can do.
Although under pressure at halfway in the race he stayed on really strongly inside the last couple of furlongs and eventually won by just over two lengths. A rise in the weights is inevitable but I have always thought this horse might land a good handicap one day and this effort offered further hope of that.
