Clare Robinson has 1st career win at Newbury with DARK AMBER for Brendan Powell
Congratulations to Clare Robinson on enjoying her first career winning ride at Newbury this evening in the Al Bastic Equiworld Handicap when partnering DARK AMBER for her trainer Brendan Powell.
With ambitions of becoming an apprentice, Clare was having only her 3rd ride on 5 year old DARK AMBER who started 9-2 favourite. She settled the mare midfield and made progress 3 furlongs from home before staying on comfortably.
19 year old Clare, best friends with ex-amateur trainer’s daughter Jenny Powell, said “My parents were involved in racing and I’ve done showjumping and eventing and am just taking it to another level.” Trainer Brendan Powell added “Clare has been with me for a year and a half and rides Dark Amber every morning – its great for the team. And its great to get a winner here even if its a low grade race.”
Well done Clare, seen here receiving a winning pat on the back from fellow jockey Edward Sibbick after passing the winning post.
