Mandy's Boy

Brodie Hampson with Mandy's Boy at LambournBrodie Hampson with Mandy's Boy at LambournMandy's Boy

Mandy's Boy is a five-year old, Irish-bred bay gelding.  He is spending the winter at Sally Randell's yard at Broad Hinton in the ownership of the 'Keeping the Dream Alive' syndicate.

In May last year he won over hurdles on good ground at Ludlow for trainer Ian Willams - just ahead of Don Padeja and Sunblazer (who was ridden by AP McCoy.)

This year he was placed in two late summer handicaps over hurdles - at Uttoxeter and Huntingdon, but had no form in two recent runs on the flat.  

James Banks takes Mandy's Boy over the hurdles at LambournJames Banks takes Mandy's Boy over the hurdles at LambournOn December 3 he returned to hurdling at Market Rasen - his debut outing from Sally Randell's yard.  But in heavy going over two miles he came home last of the eight runners.

Then at Catterick on December 15 he was ridden into fourth place by stable jockey James Banks in a fifteen furlong handicap chase.  On soft ground, he led two fences out, but soon lost his place to the eventual winner.  He was overtaken by the second placed horse on the flat and then weakened to take fourth place.  However, his connections were well pleased with his performance.

He now has a good handicap and has been jumping well both at Sally Randell's yard and on the Lambourn gallops.  Watch out for further outings in the New Year.
