LORRAINE ELLISON LADY FLAT AMATEUR CHAMPION 2008
With the championship already in the bag, it was in Lorraine’s absence this Halloween at Nottingham that the runner-up slot was fought out. With Carol Bartley, Amy Ryan and Jacqui Kidd all on equal points in 2nd place before the race, the final of the Sawfish Software Series saw Faye Bramley ride the winner which immediately allowed her to overtake her rivals and shot her into the runner-up slot for the championship.
This concluding ladies flat race for the season was also Steve Hull’s Sawfish Software Series finale, with two lady riders on equal points in the lead – Faye Bramley and Serena Brotherton – and thanks to the generosity of the sponsor, both ladies went home with a magnificent Harriet Glen bronze apiece. Many thanks indeed to Steve Hull for his generosity. This mini-series, in its inaugural year, has been extremely popular with maximum fields and the highlight for Mr Hull must have been the second race in the series at Redcar when he and Serena Brotherton (who co-owns Gala Sunday) enjoyed victory.
Many thanks to all of our sponsors for so much fun for the ladies this summer and to all the owners and trainers who have supported them.
