The fine form of leading amateur jockey David England continues as he clocks up a double at Cheltenham for guv’nor Nigel Twiston-Davies to take his tally to 11 so far this season, with a career total of 19.
David just can’t stop riding winners! After a treble at Market Rasen (a great achievement for an amateur), he has enjoyed a double at Worcester, wins at Chepstow and Aintree and now a Cheltenham double! Don’t forget that this is particularly significant for David, as he broke two vertebrae last summer whilst representing Great Britain in a Fegentri invitation race in Quakenbruck, Germany, and had to be flown home on a stretcher. His patience in having to lie flat and wait for his body to mend has paid off. That long break of seven months from the saddle tried David’s patience and so it is especially pleasing to see him now riding out of his skin.
Ardaghey’s Cheltenham win is the biggest so far in David’s career, but no win could have been more facile for him than Imperial Commander in the bumper who was mighty impressive and put in a bold front running performance from start to finish. Many congratulations David!
The last day for the FEGENTRI season for gentlemen jockeys being hosted at Baden-Baden in Germany has seen Matthew Smith ride a winner for Great Britain, giving him a tally of three winners in nine days!
Congratulations to Matty, who rode a winner at Ludlow over hurdles on 12th October, a winner at Plumpton in a maiden hurdle 4 days later, and a winner on the flat in Germany on 21st October. On Matty’s last day riding for FEGENTRI this was a great way for him to go out in a blaze of British glory!Unfortunately Matty’s run of good fortune came to an end when he dislocated his shoulder in his second ride of the day over fences at Baden-Baden. We all wish him a swift recovery and a speedy return to the saddle.
Many congratulations to Serena Brotherton on retaining her Amateur Lady Flat Jockey Championship title for 2006 after a nail biting finish to the season.
Lorraine Ellison was always going easily on Great View for Annabelle King but Serena Brotherton on David Elsworth’s Acknowledgement always had them in her sights and, having held her horse up, started to close the gap from half way up the straight. Serena did not quite make it to be first past the post but by finishing second in this race, both girls tied on 80 points for the championship. With Serena having six wins this season and Lorraine now enjoying her fifth, the final tally of wins secured Serena her second consecutive championship for the Flat.
Many congratulations to everyone who has enjoyed the winners’ enclosure this season and especially to both Lorraine and Serena who have given us all such a spectacular finale.
If you are wondering what to do this weekend, there is plenty on offer in the amateur scene.
First stop Newbury, where the ladies battle it out in the last ladies flat race of the season for the championship title which is to be fought between current ladies’ champion and table leader Serena Brotherton and, only 4 points behind her, Lorraine Ellison.
Meanwhile, across the Atlantic in the US, our FEGENTRI lady representative Faye Bramley will be riding in Laurel Park on Thursday, followed by rides in Meadowlands, Charles Town and Philadelphia Park. Simon Walker, our 2005/2006 Champion All Weather Amateur Jockey, will be accompanying her to represent Great Britain.
Our gentleman FEGENTRI representative, Matty Smith, fresh from 2 wins within the last 5 days at Ludlow and Plumpton respectively, will be riding in the last Fegentri gentlemen’s races of the season at Baden-Baden in Germany.
