Sir George in the frame for the 16th consecutive run

Another Allan Bloodlines yearling purchase chalked up his sixth win this afternoon when SIR GEORGE took a nice one mile handicap at Ripon.

This extremely tough horse has run 21 times finishing out of the first four only three times !  In his last 16 runs he has been in the first four ! 

Off a mark of 82, he justified favouritism today, getting home by half a length and showing how well trainer Ollie Pears is doing with him.  There is talk of the Lincoln or its consolation race early next year and some attractive prizes in the North.

A €22,000 Allan Bloodlines purchase at Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sales, SIR GEORGE cost €1,000 more than another six time winer from the same sale C’MON YOU IRONS (see yesterday’s News Entry for details of Allan’s 5 wins per yearling average).
