Tyger Mauls The Opposition!
WINNER 18 OF 2022: TYGER BAY, trained by Conrad Allen and ridden by Sean Levey: 'The Unibet Extra Place Offers Every Day Handicap' over 6f at Kempton.
At the off, he was joint favourite. Breaking well from a centre stall, he chased the leader on the outer, travelling strongly. Coming into the straight, he was still looking strong and Sean asked him to quicken away, which he did very well. Taking the lead in the final furlong, he went clear to win by 1 and 3/4 lengths.

He has been running so well since we purchased him, with three 2nd places in a row up to yesterday's race at Kempton. He showed the field a clear pair of hooves and ran away with the race, as you can see above!
Timeform rated it as a career best performance of 87 and say: "Gained reward for a string of good runs, looking better than ever as he came out on top; sensibly kept closer to pace than is often the case (chased leader), loomed up 2f out, produced to lead over 1f out, drew clear, won readily; likely to continue in form, but was well placed here and revised mark will force him into a higher grade of handicap."
Sean said in his Racing TV interview: "I was quite impressed. He pinged the gates and got a handy position. He picked up and put it to bed quickly enough. He's a clever horse and was well on top at the line.”
Syndicate manager Tim says: "Well that was well deserved, after his three 2nd place defeats. Sean gave him a good ride and was very complimentary about him in his post race interview and rightly so, as he showed his fantastic turn of foot in the final furlong to put the race to bed. It is lovely to have our first winner with Conrad and the fact that Timeform have rated this as a career best, Tyger Bay looks like he could be giving his new owners a fun time this year. He has already recouped his purchase price in race prize money, since we bought him in October! Congratulations to his owners and well done to Conrad and his team.”
