(4g) 52 kgs. Drawn 4. Francois Herholdt rides for Kirk Swanson
By Sarge out of a Tara’s Hall (SNL) mare. The lightly raced Phantom Major has won 3 and been placed 7 times from 10 starts. And he has won over the Tankard distance, 2000m… in December… in a Merit Rated 80 Handicap, when he narrowly beat Kevin Barry when receiving 6.5 kgs.
On January 28 over 1800m he was 1.75 lengths off Simona, when giving the filly 2kgs. I would say his best performances to date have been over 1800m and 2000m. Phantom Major is not only handsome, but also gutsy. With a light weight he should give some cheek in the Castle Tankard.
