Space Traveller steps up to an extended mile and get’s more black type
The exciting three year old Space Traveller stepped up to a mile in his latest start yesterday, in the Sky Bet And Symphony Group Strensall Stakes (Group 3) at York.
He was keen early on, but settled towards the rear of the field of 6, travelling well, Danny asked him for an effort as they straightened up, he responded and picked up, staying on strongly to finish 3rd beaten half a length.
This was a progressive run for his first race over 7 furlongs, and it looked like the easy mile and fast ground worked in his favour.
He now has black type over, 6, 7 and 8.5 furlongs!
