Goldie at the Double

JIM Goldie was the trainer in form at Ayr Racecourse yesterday saddling a double with Euchen Glen in the Spring Promotion At Western House Hotel Handicap and Tommy G in the QTS Handicap.

The first named had to wait for a gap to appear in the one mile two furlong race but when it did jockey Sam James powered the four year old clear to win very cosily by a length and a quarter. There will certainly be bigger prizes ahead for this gelding.

Sam James was also on board Tommy G who beat Glengarry by a length in the seven furlong handicap.

Another Scottish trained winner was Keith Dalgleish’s Paddyplex who stayed on well over the mile and a quarter trip to land the maiden stakes by a length from Fiendish who tried to make all.

The easiest winner of the afternoon was Visitant in the Belhaven For MacMillan May Handicap. Andrew Mullen always had the David Thompson trained four year old handy and when he pressed the button he sped five lengths clear of Stoneboat Bill.

Ayr’s next meeting is Tennent’s Raceday on Wednesday ,May 24.
