Promising 3-year-old Uptown Lad resumed from a spell scoring a tough hard fought victory in the opening event at the Anzac day meeting at Gosford yesterday.
The Manhattan Lad gelding jumped well before settling on speed outside the leader. Apprentice jockey Nick Heywood allowed Uptown Lad to work around the leader on the home turn sprinting quickly at the top of the straight before the gelding fought courageously over the concluding stages to score a tough hard fought victory. “That was a great effort by Uptown Lad today, he’s a horse that I have plenty of time for and I have no doubt we will have lots of fun with in time. He’s still learning his craft and will continued to improve with each outing. I will take him home and find a suitable race in the coming weeks ’ added Kim.
