Barton follows up derby win with racing success

YOU can't keep Joey Barton out of the headlines at the moment, and little more than an hour after he helped Newcastle record a Wear-Tyne derby win over Sunderland, the controversial midfielder had another success to celebrate at York races. Barton's highly-rated two-year-old, My Propeller, won the Listed Julia Graves Roses Stakes on the Knavesmire to announce his arrival as a possible Classic candidate next season. Ridden by Frankie Dettori, My Propeller landed odds of 4-1 as he timed his finish to perfection to surge a length clear of his closest challenger, Last Bid. The win netted Barton almost £15,000, and the Peter Chapple Hyam-trained youngster is now entered in the valuable Cheveley Park Stakes at Newmarket in September.
