Michael Owen on a winner as Brown Panther romps home at Goodwood
BROWN Panther, bred and part-owned by former England striker Michael Owen, ran out an impressive winner of the Artemis Goodwood Cup.
Running over two miles for only the second time in his career, the five-year-old showed plenty of stamina and class to strike by three and a half lengths from Ahzeemah.
Richard Kingscote was trapped in behind horses on the 13-2 shot with two furlongs to run, but when the gap came Brown Panther shot clear and the race was over within a matter of strides.
The German raider Altano made late headway to claim third, but the 3-1 favourite Mount Athos was given plenty to do from the rear of the field and never looked like winning.
