LIGHTNING STRIKES AT NEWCASTLE

Ventura Lightning got his head back in front for the time since his two year old season at Newcastle on Tuesday under a perfectly timed ride from jockey Tony Hamilton. Settled at the rear of the field he was nudged along over two furlongs out. Tony then began to push him along and was soon making headway over a furlong out. He was ridden inside final furlong and kept on to take lead in the final strides to win by a head. Congratulations to all owners involved in the Middleham Park Racing LXXXI & Partner syndicate.
