Owned by Nic Brereton of Geelo Racing and trained by Carl Perry, Geelo Vegas has had a fantastic start to his career which began with a convincing victory at Sheffield’s Owlerton Stadium in August 2014 live on Sky Sports. Since then he has gone on to win the National Sprint in Nottingham and claimed victory on Irish Derby Final Night at Shelbourne Park in Ireland.
