Sail Away, trained by Alcester’s Dan Skelton and ridden by his brother Harry, took the Class 3 Rosconn Group Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase, feature of the Wigley Property RaceDay held in aid of The Myton Hospices, to bring the 2021-22 Warwick season to a close.
On a bright, but blustery evening, Sail Away, set to concede weight to both his rivals, led from the off over the three mile trip, flying the first fence.
He continued to set the pace, putting in an exhibition round and, although Ludlow winner Ultimate Getaway, receiving 13lbs, gave chase, he couldn’t match the leader’s jumping and Sail Away strolled home to complete a stable double.
The event marked the 2021/22 Jump Racing Season Finale at Warwick and the money was raised by a charity auction of memorabilia, and support from a host of local companies who sponsored races and bought tables in the pavilion marquee.
Yasmin Audhali, Corporate Fundraiser at Myton, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to The Wigley Group and everyone who came to support the Wigley Property Raceday.
