SCOTT DOBSON IS CROWNED KING OF THE AMATEUR ALL WEATHER AT LINGFIELD’S AWARDS EVENING
Following Saturday’s racing, Lingfield hosted their annual All Weather Awards Dinner at which Scott Dobson was presented by Greg Nichols, Chief Executive of the BHB, with a silver cup in recognition of his winning the Amateur All Weather Championship.
Unlike the professionals, our amateur season is run over 12 months in order that every winning and placed amateur jockey has points awarded. When the amateurs’ race riding opportunities are so limited compared with professional jockeys, this only seems fair.
The new Amateur All Weather 2005/2006 season therefore has already begun as from Sunday 20th March 2005!
To end a memorable evening, Scott was lucky enough to win a raffle prize – a 2 night stay at a 5* Scottish hotel – much to the delight of his girlfriend Kathryn. Many congratulations to Scott.
