Spring Charlie Builds on Impressive Winning Strike Rate!
Sep 05, 2018
Spring Charlie chalked up win number 3 from just the 5 career starts with an impressive victory at Newcastle on Tuesday with apprentice Sam Weatherley aboard.
Ridden quietly early the 4yo was forced out 3 wide when the speed dramatically dropped mid-race. Pushed even wider on the home turn Spring Charlie was ridden along and once balanced in the straight, continued to build his momentum and over the last 150m was able to gain the lead and forge clear to score by almost a length.
The stable's other runner on the day Holy Reign finished 4th after leading in the early stages.
