Hayley Turner’s golden season continued with a brilliant front-running victory aboard Boom And Bust in the £125,000 totesport Mile that secured the jockey a first success at Glorious Goodwood.

Drawn in the plum number one stall, Turner jumped the 22/1 shot to the head of affairs and after seeing off Confront for the lead through the opening furlong, set a perfect tempo up front in the mile contest.

The four-year-old gelding responded gamely to pressure through the final quarter-mile to fend of the fast finishing Proponent for a neck triumph.

Third-placed Pintura was a further short-head away.

A delighted Turner commented: “It’s going very well this season! I think being drawn one is obviously a huge advantage and he is improving - I think that I am three from three on him now.

“I was sitting quite tight after the line because the last time I rode him, he ducked out and I fell off him - it showed that he had a bit more in the tank. He really enjoys bowling along in front, he settles well and all three races that I have ridden him, he has made the running and won.

“I was in the best place because I missed out on all the action behind. It’s a very tough and competitive race and all of the horses look really well. It’s this time of year that they are all really buzzing and Mr Tregoning always seems to do well at Glorious Goodwood, so many thanks to his team.”

Tregoning has endured a quiet time this year with numbers down at his Berkshire stable and Boom And Bust is only his 11th success of the campaign.

The trainer said: “We are obviously thrilled and it was a very good ride again from the jockey. The horses have been running well - Hayley rode Lulla very well from a bad draw to finish second, beaten a head. It’s been a tough year but racing is like that - you’ve got to survive and just get on with it.

“Boom And Bust has surprised me this year. He just fell short in a Listed race last time but he is very decent and he has done us really well. I bought him myself for not very much money so it’s very enjoyable and lovely for the owners to have a winner at Goodwood. It’s very special.”

“We took him to the horses in training sale last autumn but we didn’t get a bid for him. Obviously, he has matured a lot and full credit to all my staff at home. We have survived some quite difficult times this year but we have all been through it before and we keep going. It’s just getting the ammunition right - we’ve been short of some good ammunition this year.

“Hopefully, we can entice some new people. It’s a tough time to do it but I’m always very enthusiastic about that sort of thing and good winners like this hopefully help the business.

“We’ve dropped down from about 100 to around 60 at the moment so that’s quite a big drop but some people have gone out of the game.

“This horse I bought for £25,000, so he wasn’t expensive. Maybe that will encourage people to spend there money with me, I might get them another one like this. It’s a great day for us and Hayley, of course. Hayley is riding at the top of her form.

“She is a girl with a clock in her head, she gave him a breather around the bend. Steve Cauthen was a man with a clock in the head but I think you can say that for Hayley Turner.

“I always think getting drawn low gives you a 5lb advantage here and his best form is on rattling fast ground. Hayley rides quite a bit for me and she’s a really good jockey. It’s a super race to win and I love having winners at Goodwood, it’s a big thing for me. I hate it when I go away from this meeting without having had a winner. It’s nice for Jas Singh the owner as well. I think Boon And Bust is improving and might improve a bit further so it will take a huge offer to take him away from me.”

THE RECTIFIER’S WITHDRAWAL TOOK THE PACE FROM THE RACE

Roger Charlton, trainer of the second-placed horse Proponent, had reason to regret the stalls’ withdrawal of The Rectifier.

“I think The Rectifier would have put the pace to the race and without him we did not quite have the pace we needed,” said Charlton. “Ted [Durcan] said that Proponent just hit a flat spot in the race, but then he ran on well.

“I am delighted with his run, I think it is a career-best from him - and at the age of seven! He will go up in the handicap from this so I don’t know what will be next yet.”

After Pintura’s third, trainer David Simcock said: “I think the draw was all important here. He’s very honest, very tough and on another day the result might have been different.

“He has form on soft, but I think as long as the ground is not extreme, he will go on most surfaces. He’s very durable.”
