OWNER: Irkroy Racing & Mr Andrew Pollock
TRAINER: MW Easterby (Sheriff Hutton)
TURF RATING: 78 (-2)
Gelding by Rail Link formerly trained in Chantilly, France by Pascal Bary. He was originally owned by Khalid Abdullah and finished second on his debut at Saint-Cloud. However, he went one better for his new owner at Newcastle in December having only been at the yard a few months, when he won a maiden race over a mile. It was a great day as it was owner Andrew Pollock's first winner as a racehorse owner.
Roller was again a winner at Redcar in April 2017 when he won the straight mile handicap to give jockey Nathan Evans a double.
Roller is a well named horse because he loves to roll in the field when he is turned out and he knows how to get really muddy!
