Great debut run by Dragon Bridge at Seymour

Jan 06, 2015

Dragon Bridge, a 3yo gelding by El Hermano, (a brother to El Segundo) went to Seymour today for his first start in a 1300m maiden. After walking out of the stalls he steadily made ground on the inside to be midfield at the turn where he was held up for a few strides, then half way down the straight, his jockey Mark Pegus hooked him across the back of the leaders to gain some clear running space. Under strong riding he came home well to be a fast running third, where the winner Dusty Jack won easily by 4 lengths. Overall it was a promising debut for the Lord Lodge runner and given his experience for the run he should give his connections something to look forward to next time out over more distance.
