Rain Spider came from the clouds to deny hotly fancied Pas de Deux a victory in the 1200m Champion Juvenile Stakes at Borrowdale Park this afternoon.
The son of Byword (GB), out of a Fort Wood (USA) mare, was having his second start and came third to Party In The Park in his first outing. He is trained by Bridget Stidolph, bred by Wilgersbosdrift and Mauritzfontein, and owned by Ashley Dixon, Scott Buchan, Neil Evans, Gary Carter, Merlyn Chant, Ryan Sherwood and Paula Lewis. Brendon McNaughton was in the irons.
Training honours during the rest of the meeting were shared by Penny Fisher and Kirk Swanson, with three winners each.
Congratulations to all the winning connections.
