A SYNDICATED racehorse has had his racing debut delayed.
Iron Max, owned by a team of 12 through Deva Racing in Malpas, turned out to see him run at Wolverhampton on November 8, only for the meeting to be cancelled due to floodlight failure.
The team hope that when they return to the city again on Saturday that Iron Max, the first horse to run in the stable’s colours, will make it worth their wait.
More than 20 owners and their guests attended the abandoned meeting and they will be out in force again on Saturday to cheer Max home.
Mike Foster, racing manager at Deva Racing, said: “Max’s enthusiastic owners will be there on Saturday to support their horse. I am sure that the owners and their guests will have a great time and it would be great if they were lucky enough to visit the winner’s enclosure on Saturday.
“Max is a cheeky individual with plenty of speed and I am sure his owners will get plenty of enjoyment out of him over the next couple of years.”
Deva Racing, based at Michael Owen’s Manor House Stables, has one share left in Iron Max, along with shares in two other yearlings.
The first yearling is by leading sire Kyllachy and he was bred by the National Stud, the second yearling is by Orpen and he is being aimed at the Chester May meeting.
