SIMON KEEPS HIS ALL-WEATHER CROWN AND 4 AMATEURS SHARE THE RUNNER-UP SLOT!
With Simon Walker already safely retaining his All-Weather Championship for 2008/9 (with 26 points), today’s final two races at Wolverhampton determined the runner-up slot with an unusual final result.
The first division of Arena Leisure Catering’s race was won by Chris Martin, giving him his second win on the all-weather this season to share second place in the tables with Michelle Bryant, Oliver Greenall and Patrick Millman (all on 10 points).
The second division was won by Will Biddick, better known for his point-to-pointing and jump racing successes, which took his all-weather seasonal tally to 6 points. With none of today’s placed riders being top scorers this season, the runner-up slot for this season is shared for the first time ever by no less than 4 amateur jockeys, all on 10 points each!
Congratulations to everyone who has enjoyed riding a winner this season, and especially of course to Champion Amateur Jockey Simon Walker and the four championship runners up.
