Our first win of the season goes to Layton Abby at Hawkesbury 2ndAugust 2018. This Bay 4yo mare by High Chaparral/Lustre Lady was bred by the Towell family of GT Park.
She jumped from barrier 4 and settled last throughout most of the 1800m race. Jockey Rachel King relied on the mare’s tough qualities to find a gap and grind out the finish, winning from the Snowden trained Sytus.
Layton Abbey has had to deal with a few issues on her way to this win. We wish to thank the owners for their patience and support, they include Jack Wilen, Graham Fisher, the Towell Family and Golden Harbour Racing Syndicate #4 managed by none other than Ross Baxter.
Hopefully there are more wins to come for this promising staying mare. Congratulations to all connections.
