Taxi! Wright takes New York theme for bet365 US Darts Masters

Danny Baggish & Peter Wright (Ed Mulholland, PDC)

Peter Wright brought a New York taxi to the big stage with a unique outfit and walk-on at the bet365 US Darts Masters on Friday night.

The World Champion celebrated the World Series of Darts' debut in the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden with a typically colourful shirt as he took on Danny Baggish.

Wright donned a specially-designed New York taxi-themed shirt with "Snakebite Taxis" emblazoned across the front.

He then changed his usual walk-on routine to being a taxi driver - as Baggish joined in as a passenger as they crossed the stage to the delight of a packed Hulu Theater crowd.

"It was good that Danny joined in - it wasn't pre-planned but I waved to him to jump in the taxi and we were on the way," said Wright. "Everyone loved it."

Wright has also worn a baseball-style shirt which featured the world-famous Statue of Liberty during pre-event media interviews in New York - and teased that he has an equally unique outfit ready for Saturday's final stages of the event.
