VAGABOND BOY CLOSE TO FIRST WIN

May 02, 2017

Harvey Racing will head to Ascot on Wednesday confident of a good performance from Vagabond Boy in the 1200m Corporate Membership Maiden.

The three-year-old Dick Turpin gelding takes on the older horses, but should get a good run from barrier six.

It will be Vagabond Boy’s fourth career start and second time to 1200m after a fourth to Storm Dancer back in September.

That form has stood up with Storm Dancer running good races in harder company since.

Troy Turner jumps stays in the saddle.

Turner rode Vagabond Boy during his trial win at the start of April and was also steering when second at York first-up, beaten a length.

That form reads ok now after the winner has since finished third in a class two at Albany.

Good luck to the promising galloper’s big group of owners.
