VAGABOND BOY RUNNER UP AGAIN
May 04, 2017
Vagabond Boy continues to put in consistent performances and finished runner-up again at Ascot on Wednesday.
The Dick Turpin three-year-old reeled off the second quickest final 600m sectional to place a length behind Santiago Gal.
It was Vagabond Boy’s second run this campaign and has finished as runner-up on both occasions.
Troy Turner rode from barrier six.
Vagabond Boy was a little tardy out of the gates but mustered soon after to take up a spot in running just off the speed.
Turner had Vagabond Boy settle three wide with cover and the winner led the field for home around the corner.
Vagabond Boy took a little riding before the corner but picked up the bit upon balancing and hit the line strongly.
A win is not too far away.
