Costa Percy worth every penny after Musselburgh win on the flat

MOORLANDS trainer Jennie Candlish is toasting her first winner on the flat at Musselburgh in Scotland.

The Basford Green yard’s Costa Percy got up by a neck to win the 1m 4f Turcan Connell Handicap for three-year-olds this afternoon.

Costa Percy, owned by Paul and Clare Rooney, has twice previously won over hurdles, but this was the bay gelding’s first win on the flat.

The horse was steered home to victory on the Midlothian course by jockey Joe Fanning as 7/2 second favourite.
