The Fonze outstays rivals in Listed chase

Report: Tramore, Friday

Waterford & Tramore Racecourse Supporters Chase (Listed) 2m5f

THE FONZE stayed on powerfully up the home straight to run out the clear 12-1 winner at Tramore on Friday.

Trained by Eoin Doyle and ridden by Shay Barry, the nine-year-old tracked around at the rear of the field for two of the three circuits before moving up to a challenging position on the back straight of the final circuit.

Hello Kitty was leading the pack at this point and was still going well jumping the penultimate fence.

But The Fonze started to stay on strongly in the heavy ground, leading at the last and running on powerfully.

Anothercoppercoast also travelled well but could only stay on at the one pace to grab second at 20-1, while Snowy Morning kept on to finish third after losing his prominent position on the final circuit.
