Hanger returns to winning ways
Part-owned WS-bred O’Reilly gelding Hanger bounced back to his best at Ruakaka on Saturday with a hard-fought victory.
It was the fourth win of the Roger James and Robert Wellwood-trained gelding’s career.
Hanger has also been placed at black type level when runner-up in the Gr.3 Cambridge Breeders’ Stakes and third in the Listed Matamata Slipper.
