The patience of Grange Park Racing owners of Abushamah has been well and truly tested but he came good to win over the straight mile at Redcar under Jack Garritty.
"The mist had miraculously cleared for this straight mile handicap which was fought out by two well handicapped seven-year-olds. ABUSHAMAH hadn't won since a C&D success in June 2016 off a much higher mark, but had put in some decent efforts since. All three GB wins have come over track and trip and he has failed to go close after previous wins."

"Abushamah needs everything to drop right. He has been a bit frustrating but he got it right today. He is a big horse and he doesn't want the ground too quick."
