WELL REHEARSED FOR VICKY CARTMEL AT NEWBURY AT SHE SECURES BATHWICK PRIZE!
Its been an exciting few days for our lady riders with the finale of the Bathwick Series being hosted by Newbury Racecourse on Saturday which was dramatically won by a short head by Vicky Cartmel on Hughie Morrison’s Rehearsed. This also secured Vicky the series title by the shortest of short heads as had she finished second, the series win would have been shared with Alex Bevan. Vicky wins a holiday at a destination of her choice anywhere in the world thanks to Bathwick Tyres, and we are extremely grateful to them for their loyal support of this exciting and developing ladies series, which is extending to 8 races for 2008 with an extra race scheduled at Salisbury.
The final ladies race of the season takes place on Halloween at Nottingham, this also being the finale of the Sawfish Software mini-series kindly sponsored by Steve Hull. Jacquie Kidd currently leads the Software tables but she is without a ride in the finale and the mini series looks likely to go to either Serena Brotherton, Alyson Deniel or Faye Bramley.
Lorraine Ellison has already secured the ladies flat amateur championship title but there is a race on for the runner-up slot with three lady jockeys on equal points, but in the absence of Jacqui Kidd, the competition is between triple ladies champion Carol Bartley and Amy Ryan.
The finale of the men’s season takes place at Musselburgh on 8th November with a battle between Simon Walker and Scott Dobson for the men’s championship. Simon is currently 10 points clear but if Scott were to win in Scotland, it would give him the championship with extra wins already in the bag.
