SERENA THE CENTURIAN
Very many congratulations to our multiple lady Flat Champion Serena Brotherton on reaching a career milestone when riding her 100th Flat winner at Nottingham today! This might sound like a repeat of an earlier post as in fact Serena’s century was reached at Lingfield last month when she won with her own CITY GROUND, but that winning total included one Hunterchase and she had to wait a little longer before reaching her own personal goal of 100 Flat winners.
The full Flat century came excruciatingly close only yesterday at The Champion Hurdle Meeting in Jersey when Serena made what has become an annual pilgrimage to the Channel Isles with City Ground. Sadly the rain softened ground denied them success but today’s Nottingham victory was easily achieved with Rebecca Bastiman’s INDIAN CHIEF who followed up his win at Chepstow on Tuesday and, never in any danger, won very comfortably by 7 lengths.
Many congratulations again to Serena on this unique record and here’s to many more winners!
