Kinross Farm brought home four wins and three second-place finishes yesterday in The Glenwood Races.
Kinross trainer Neil Morris, on timber champion Company Eight, easily won the Highweight Flat. He and Matt McCarron battled at the wire in the Maiden Hurdle, with McCarron prevailing on first-time starter One Fifth Avenue. Morris had to settle for a close second on Fields Of Omagh.
The Kinross pair met again in the Open Timber, where McCarron, on Jakob's Pal, slipped past Morris (Rhapsody In Purple).
"He wore me down," McCarron said of Jakob's Pal. "He didn't want to steer at first. He's a little fussy about his mouth. There was no speed in the race. I finally just dropped his head, and he settled right down and jumped brilliantly, and he had a nice kick in the end. I had Neil easily."
The day wasn't over for the two jockeys. McCarron (Antique) again squeaked by Morris (Sunny Boca) at the finish of the Open Flat. Hurdle champion Double Found (Simon Hobson) was a close third.
Chip Miller and Greek Hero were first in the Maiden Flat, finishing ahead of Ruminate and Jonathan Thomas. Hobson took the Open Hurdle on Southern Light over Devil's Reach and McCarron.
