All lady jockeys who have ridden in the Bathwick Tyres Ladies Derby Series this year are invited to Bath Racecourse this Thursday when the racecourse hosts a Press Day for this prestigious race, the richest ladies race in Europe. The final Ladies Derby is eagerly awaited which takes place on 14th August.
The 75th birthday (2nd June 2005) of the President of the AJA, Mr Gay Kindersley, was celebrated belatedly at Stratford-upon-Avon on Sunday 17th July when the Fegentri invitation race, hosted by the AJA, was named in his honour.
Twelve runners went to post, half of which were representing the host nation Great Britain, and the closest of these in the finish was Naked Oat ridden by Jamie Snowden, who was only beaten a head by Henrik Engblom on Milton Bradley’s Mr Fernet in a thrilling finish.
FOLLOWING THE 50TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF FEGENTRI, RACING WAS HELD ON SUNDAY 13TH FEBRUARY ON THE FROZEN LAKE OF ST MORITZ. DAVID DUNSDON REPRESENTED GREAT BRITAIN AND SCORED A FACILE WIN ON THE SNOW, BEATING NINE OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES WITH EASE.
