Just A Sting extended our smart start to 2017 with an impressive winning debut in the bumper at Bangor-on-Dee on Tuesday.

 

That makes it five winners so far in the New Year and hopefully we can keep the good run going over the next few days.

 

Just A Sting was well ridden by our assistant trainer Mike Legg who stepped in for Noel Fehily who is suffering from flu.

 

The horse has worked like a really nice prospect since he was sent to us by Nigel & Barbara Collison in October, who also own another decent youngster with us called Acting Lass.

 

But you never know for sure until they get to the racecourse and Just A Sting was initially green at Bangor as the field set off at a brisk gallop.

 

It took a while for the penny to drop but he gradually warmed to his task before breezing past the leader Celebre D'Allen and quickly pulling clear for a decisive victory.

 

It was a highly encouraging start by a lovely big horse with much potential. We will not be rushing him this season and will keep him to bumpers for the time being.
