Night Bear, 3YO son of Dragon Pulse won on the second time of asking at handicap level at Redcar on Saturday for Trainer Ed Vaughan and Owner Saeed Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi.
Bred by N O’ Neill, he was a Tattersalls Book 3 graduate when selling for 18,000gns to Rabbah Bloodstock.
The winning jockey Paul Mulrennan commented ‘The step up in trip really suited Night Bear. He has a bit of scope ‘.
Racing Post analysis; Night Bear was slightly better off for a narrow defeat by today’s runner-up over a mile last time. Entering the last furlong it looked like a similar result, but his stamina kicked in and enabled him to get on top well inside the last furlong. He might get a little further.
Another smart prospect for his sire Dragon Pulse who continues to produce winners.
