ROBBIE HENDERSON EXCELS ON ELLERSLIE GEORGE!
Robbie Henderson ran the opposition into the ground on ELLERSLIE GEORGE in the Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton today, sensationally giving trainer Nick Mitchell an unforgettable day’s racing following on from THE LISTENER winning at Down Royal only minutes earlier.
Robbie’s father acquired the horse at Doncaster in May when unsold for £20,000 and he won first time out for Robbie at Stratford in September. He then was beaten at Bangor but today’s front running tactics paid off splendidly. His modest rider said afterwards “I didn’t have a choice with that. All I had to do was sit there and he did the work; I was only a passenger.”
Many congratulations to all connections on a fantastic win!
