Triumphant start repays connections
SMALL Fly made a big impact by handsomely repaying his new connections in full at the weekend.
The eight-year-old gelding captured a handicap hurdle at Ffos Las for trainer Bob Buckler (Henley near Crewkerne) on May 31 and then fetched £2,800 at Ascot Sales.
And that was amount he won on his stable debut for Oxfordshire handler Derek Frankland in another handicap hurdle over an extended two miles and four furlongs at Uttoxeter on Sunday.
But it doesn't always work out as lucratively as that because George Benjamin – formerly owned by Anthony Knott and trained by Bill Turner at Sigwells between Sherborne and Wincanton – disappointed for his new mentors in Yorkshire last week.
