Bretton Wood Makes Satisfactory Debut At Newmarket

Early season, and a Frankel-sire two-year-old makes his debut at Newmarket over 5f on good going. 

The British Stallion Stud EBF Novice Stakes (GBB) Race Class 4 £5,154. Six horses ran, all debutantes, including hot favourite Hallasan (10/11f) trained by Charlie Appleby. 

Paul & Oliver Cole sent out the winner, Arran, who won by a neck, from The Actor. 

Bretton Wood, a son of Frankel, out of a talented mare, Pretty Pollyanna, finished a creditable 5th beaten 3 3/4L. Trained by James Owen, in the ownership of The Gredley Family, this bay colt, born on the 13th March 2022. The 16/1 shot, ridden by Neil Callan, will improve for a step up in distance. 

Very few of Frankel's offspring are natural 5-furlong horses. 

Bretton Wood is likely to progress with racing.
