Red Avenger Wins The Betfred Mile (Heritage Handicap)

Fri 01 August 2014

Red Avenger wins the lucrative Betfred Mile by a short head under Jimmy Fortune.  Jimmy settled Red Avenger towards the rear of the seventeen runner field before switching him left two furlongs out to take the Heritage handicap with the last stride.  It was a fantastic race to watch and caused a huge roar from all the staff back at La Grange Stables.  This colt by War front seemed to really enjoy the fast conditions and battled hard with the jockey saying;

 “He was very game.”

Red Avenger wore blinkers for the first time and they seem to have had the desired effect.

"We put a pair of blinkers on him and that made the difference as he has won a big one.” Ed

Congratulations to Red Avengers owner, Mr Arculli who had a winner earlier on in week, when Red Runaway won at Lingfield under George Baker.
