MICK TO MAKE HIS TURF DEBUT AT DONCASTER ON TUESDAY.
We have one runner on Tuesday in the 5.05pm at Doncaster, when our three year old gelding, Mick, makes his turf debut. He has raced four times to date, all on the All Weather, over a variety of different distances.On Tuesday he takes a significant step up in trip to one mile and six furlongs, and only time will tell if he can see out the extra distance. The handicapper has dropped him a further 2lb, to 63, Graham Lee who has already ridden him on three previous occasions, once again takes the ride.
MICK 07 April 2017. Makfi-Sereza. Owner-The Faiseur De Miracle Partnership.
Mick is a three year old gelding by 2000 Guineas winner Makfi, and the first produce of her dam,Sereza, who is by Pivotal. Sereza only raced on four occasions, all as a three year old, in Ireland, winning a maiden at Gowran Park, and earning an official rating of 95. Mick didn't race as a juvenile, but has raced four times at three, between January, to March 2020, on the all weather. He made his debut at Wolverhampton in January, over a mile and a half, with Graham Lee in the saddle, he looked very green, and after being slowly away, did make a little late headway. He was sent to Newcastle three weeks later, this time with 7lb claimer Rhona Pindar in the saddle. Mick was taking a significant drop in trip to a mile, and after challenging for the lead two out, weakened to finish fifth, of the six runners, but beaten by just five lengths
He was back at Newcastle 12 days later, racing over the same trip, with Graham Lee back in the saddle.He was given a more patient ride on that occasion, but after making his effort at halfway, he dropped out to finish sixth of the eight runners, but was now eligible for a handicap mark. Mick has raced once more, making his handicap debut at Wolverhampton off a mark of 65, over the extended one mile, and one furlong. He was slowly away from a poor draw, in stall nine, but he did make some late headway to be beaten just a little over eight lengths
