Beverley provides a double for the ladies
Beverley managed to stage a full card of 8 races today in desperate conditions with lashing rain and standing water in the paddock. The penultimate race of the afternoon, division 1 of the amateur riders’ handicap, provided a popular first success under rules for Laura Wilson on breeder and owner Peter Easterby’s COTTAM DONNY who made all under a fine ride to stay on with the rest of the field well strung out behind.
Half an hour later Victoria Barr used similar front running tactics with SILLY GILLY to dictate the pace from the off and keep on well with just enough in hand to get home, even though obviously tiring on the testing ground. Many congratulations to both ladies on their successes today.
