GEORGE EDDERY enjoys 1st win with 3rd ride at Catterick
The second amateur race of Friday afternoon was held at Catterick where 10 went to post for the Yorkshire Dales Distillery Handicap over one and a half miles.
Emily Easterby made much of the running with BOLLIN JOAN until joined 3 furlongs from home by Catherine Walton and MIDNIGHT WARRIOR looking the likely winners, but George Eddery (having only his third ride) on David Elsworth’s COUNTRY’N’WESTERN had them firmly in his sights. Having missed the break quite badly, George showed immense patience and never panicked in the early stages of the race, calmly presenting his horse with perfect timing to wear down the opposition and win by half a length.
Many congratulations to George on a day to remember and well done to winning connections.
