Mahato winning easily on debut (Picture: Royal Windsor racecourse)
The William Haggas-trained Zoustar colt Mahato made his debut over six furlongs at Windsor today (Monday) in a Novice Stakes event and carrying 9 stone 4 pounds, 7 pounds less than the only winner in the field, ran out a comfortable 2,25 length winner under Tom Marquand.
A Racing Post report on the meeting sub-headlined the horse as “Magic Mahato” and said, ”
William Haggas may have another classy runner to look forward to next year after Mahato created a fine impression when taking the 6f novice on his debut. Despite obvious greenness and a high head carriage, the colt travelled superbly before kicking clear under Tom Marquand, with two and a quarter lengths back to Ghaihaban, who made eye catching late headway to nab second.”
