STRAIGHT ASH update
STRAIGHT ASH – 5yo (05/05/2015 gr g)
Trainer: Ollie Pears
Sire: Zebedee (GB)(6.6f)
Dam: Blackangelheart (IRE)
Dam’s Sire: Danehill Dancer (IRE) (8.4f)
Breeder: Moyglare Stud Farm Ltd
Straight Ash had a consistent and somewhat unlucky 2019; having finished 2nd twice and 3rd four times from his ten turf starts. He was narrowly denied at Pontefract on a fantastic Friday evening and became a victim of his own consistency throughout the season with his handicap mark only dropping a fraction through the summer.
We had hoped he would be kicking off the turf season at the opening Pontefract meeting but due to the suspension of racing we now await guidance on when resumption of racing will take place. Ash remains in full training and will be ready as soon as the racing suspension is lifted.
Ollie reports him to be in great form, Ash remains his usual laidback self but is looking and feeling very fresh and is more than ready to hit the racecourse at the first opportunity.
Hopefully more details will follow very shortly about racing resuming and he will be ready to go.
