Thegreatestshowman, five year old son of Equiano started off 2021 with a bang landing the 5 furlong Betway handicap for Trainer Amy Murphy and Owners The Amy Murphy Racing Club..
A winner of five races and placed multiple times, Thegreatestshowman is the second foal out of the Thousand Words mare Conversational and comes from a speedy family, his half brother is the Stakes placed Simmy’s Copshop.
A Tattersalls Book 2 graduate, he was purchased by Agents Stroud Coleman and Trainer Amy Murphy for 30,000gns from his breeders Biddestone Stud.
Racing Post analysis: THEGREATESTSHOWMAN, who was narrowly beaten in a similar race on his last visit and ran about as well as could be expected at Lingfield the previous day when chasing home an all-the-way winner, got the job done this time, keeping on well for pressure. He’s running to a consistent level at the moment.
