Pepsi Cat fizzes to victory at Bath Steph Hollinshead Racing

Pepsi Cat (IRE) (Tamayuz x Music Pearl) won the ‘At The Races App Expert Tips Handicap Class 6 for 3YO plus’ over 5f 10y Good (Good to Soft in places) at Bath on Wednesday 23rd August 2023.

Owned by Mrs Debbie Hodson, with her husband David, long time supporters of the yard, Pepsi under the stewardship of experienced jockey Dougie Costello was handy from the start occupying the rails side and was pushed on 2 furlongs out, before leading over the final furlong and claimed victory by half a length ahead of joint favourite Cluedo.

“This was Pepsi’s third run of the season following a wind operation in the Spring. After her first outing at Nottingham in June she scoped badly however improved in her next run at Bath earlier this month and was well handicapped for this race. We are delighted with this run, the way she settled then took control of the race before running through the line was very encouraging, its certainly the best we have seen her and hopefully she will gain plenty of confidence from it and push on,” said Steph.
