Geelo Monty landed the BGBF British Bred Derby decider worth a smart £7,500 for trainer Carl Perry at Sheffield this evening with a barnstorming finish to land the honours.
Bred, owned (Geelo Racing) and trained by Carl Perry, Geelo Monty reeled in long time leader, Viking Jerry who had run a gallant race in defeat, to claim victory by half a length in 29.05. Down To The Felt was back in third spot.
The black son of Ballymac Eske and Macys Perfect is no stranger to big race success, he landed the BGBF Puppy Cup in April 2017 at the same venue.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the team at Owlerton and all owners and trainers who supported the competition.
