Peacemaker wins Produce Stakes Final at Blunsdon
PRE-RACE favourite Peacemaker scooped the £15,000 first prize in the Produce Stakes Final at the Abbey Stadium on Saturday night.
John Millard's charge won in convincing style, leading all the way from the traps to win by three lengths.
Romeo Recruit came home in second place but couldn't get anywhere near Peacemaker's time of 28.47.
Schooled at Bicester schooling track, and not even two years old, Peacemaker landed the top prize of £15,000 plus £2,000 for his breeder, also Mr Millard.
Local contender Chilli Hot Sauce trapped well, however she couldn’t overcome some crowding at the first bend, and from then on was destined not to win the competition. However, she did scoop a very handy £1,500 for owner and breeder Carwyn Davis.
There was plenty for the locals to shout about, with three winners for the Blunsdon faithful to cheer home on the night First, Forest Ronaldo made short work of his rivals in the Puppy Race.
Trained by Paul Foster, Ronaldo trapped out foot perfect to win in an impressive 28.55.
In similar fashion, Kevin Hutton’s Barnish Booth won the 480m open, just holding on to record 28.65.
Lemon Angel, trained by Ray Evans, made it a trap-to-line success. As the outsider of the field, she held off a challenge from Twisted Soul to win at odds of 16/1.
Westmead Adonis, once favourite to win The Produce Stakes won convincingly in the 509m race, coming just a length off the track record, recording 29.66.
