The Detainee wins again!

1st AUGUST 2017 /  2.15 YARMOUTH

The Detainee follows-up

Crowd Racing’s five year old gelding The Detainee took advantage of a relatively lowly flat racing rating, to record a gritty and determined victory at Yarmouth on the 1st August 2017.

The Detainee went to Yarmouth on the back of a win at Chepstow on its first run out for trainer Neil Mulholland. Mulholland pitched the Detainee into a class six handicap at the Norfolk track over a distance of 11 and a half furlongs, and it was Trevor Whelan who took the ride.

Racing off a flat mark of 58 on the day, the relatively lightly raced gelding went off as the 11/2 second favourite for the contest. The John Berry trained Hope is High ridden by Silvestre de Sousa was the 11/8 SP favourite and The Detainee was giving away two pounds to that more fancied rival.

Whelan held up TD in a good position in mid-field for much of the 11 and a half furlong contest, before making headway through the field from around three furlongs out. The Detainee hit the front from around the two furlong pole but was soon being hard pressed by favourite Hope is High.

Inside the final furlong the race came down to a battle between the two market principles and despite Hope is High coming with a late run, The Detainee dug in under pressure and held on for a victory by a head.

That gritty display in the final furlong showed that the horse’s attitude cannot be faulted and, according to the official Timeform analysis of the race, that is likely to stand The Detainee in good stead for the future.

It is now twelve months since that race and The Detainee is now rated 68 on the flat and has made his debut over hurdles, as well as winning again on the flat at Windsor.

Runner-up that day Hope is High, won his next 3 races and is now rated 72. The form of the race stood up very well.

The Detainee remains with Crowd Racing and Neil Mulholland and due to an owner relocating abroad, we have a limited number of shares available in him.

While we will always strive to buy racehorses for our owners which will win races and increase in value, the costs involved in training and running a racehorse plus the relatively low levels of prize money in the UK, make showing an upside on the initial investment made by owners very difficult and somewhat rare.

Shares bought in horses via Crowd Racing, should always be viewed as a social investment with no expectation of any financial upside. We can guarantee you will love being involved and have some wonderful experiences but we cannot guarantee you will make money.
