Russell Lindsay scores on racecourse debut
Well done to Russell Lindsay who won this afternoon’s first race at Catterick, the amateur hurdle, when making his racecourse debut appearance.
Riding SAMBELUCKY he held the horse up in the rear before making steady headway, tracking the leaders from 3 out to stay on well and be first past the post by a neck from What’s Occurrin.
Russell is aged 18 and joined trainer Keith Reveley in the summer. The trainer said “We had at least two feet of snow but we were able to canter on it, although only slowly. Russell is from Hawick and he’s done plenty of riding and hunting. He’ll be doing some point-to-pointing and he’ll go to France with my son James in the summer. He’s a good rider.” Sambelucky’s victory was the first of a 4,555-1 treble for Keith Reveley!
Good luck to Russell in keeping his 100% record intact!
