Catalyst Troy Harris
Race Three: PREFERMENT @ BRIGHTHILL FARM CONCORDE HANDICAP

She would have gone close. I wanted to ride her conservatory with the weight and it back fired a little. We didn't get clear running in the straight.

Went really good. Loomed up to win, just beaten by a better horse on the day.
