Show Palace makes a 300-mile round trip to the races pay off

SHOW Place produced a winning performance on the flat for Staffordshire Moorlands racing trainer Jenny Candlish at Carlisle Races this evening.

The four-year old chestnut gelding made the 300-mile round trip from the Basford Green stables, near Leek, pay off by sprinting to a sixth career win on the flat over five-furlongs.

The progressive Show Palace, ridden by experienced jockey Graham Lee, returned odds of 3/1 and has now gathered in more than £18,000 in prize money from his 17 starts.
