2012-05-13 Clairwood - race 8
Shogunnar chalks up an encouraging effort in the Highland Night Cup over 2500m at Clairwood Park to give clear indication that he's a future feature race contender. Unfortunately things didn't go his way racing from the back of a strung out field and with 500m to go he was still hopelessly out of touch with the leaders. To compound the disadvantage, he hung right across the wide Clairwood track before unleashing his finish on the outside rail from the back of the field. From thereon in - low-flying to pass 10 horses in a matter of strides and get up for 4th position. No doubt this performance would've clocked the fastest 400m to finish time of the race and with a more focused effort next time out he should be a serious contender for Derby honours. Congratulations to owners AN Noel, N. Jairajh & Mr & Mrs KJ Chetty, an exciting future awaits with Shogunnar.
