SCARPETA THIRD IN GRADE 2 AT FAIRYHOUSE
Scarpeta put in another gutsy run at Fairyhouse on 1st April, finishing 3rd in the Grade 2 Novice Hurdle. Very little went right for him in the race, the plan was to race handily like he did at Cheltenham, but after making a hash of the first flight he never managed to get into any sort of rhythm with his jumping.
It was a testament to Scarpeta’s courage and tenacity that he still managed to finish 3rd. He was probably slightly flat after his Cheltenham run, however still managed to finish the best of the Cheltenham runners. Both the 1st and 2nd horses had missed the Festival.
For only his fourth run over jumps, we can be very proud of what Scarpeta has achieved to date.
