Feature win for Smart Champion

27 February 2020

SMART CHAMPION took the feature two mile handicap at Newcastle this afternoon under Callum Shepherd.

The five-year-old gelding was settled in rear and waited patiently until three furlongs out, when ridden to challenge. He was then switched left over one furlong out and battled to lead inside the final half furlong, winning by half a length.

By Teofilo IRE out of Soryah IRE, Smart Champion is trained by David Simcock for John Cook and Partner.
