The Dancing Poet (Poet’s Voice) wins at Catterick for Brian Ellison and owners The Spring Cottage Syndicate.
Making his debut over obstacles here, The Dancing Poet was positioned just behind the early leaders by Sean Quinlan travelling well and showing plenty of professionalism at his hurdles throughout. He was asked to pick up at the third from home where he made a slight error, but quickly moved up to challenge at the second last before staying on well up the run in to win by a going away 3¼ lengths.
After the race jockey Quinlan said. ‘He’s done that well, he jumps well and should improve again for that, he could be quite nice’’.
The Dancing Poet was purchased for 30,000gns at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale.
