Gary Beaumont wins penultimate Betfair at Thirsk
The penultimate race in the BETFAIR NOVICE AMATEUR JOCKEYS SERIES was the first race of the evening card held over 2 miles at Thirsk on Monday 22 August with Jockey Coach Tim Reed walking the course as is customary with the jockeys 90 minutes before each race.
The rain softened ground saw 11 runners finishing well strung out with eventual winner QUESTION OF FAITH held up by Gary Beaumont and settled at the rear of the field in the early stages. Making a move 4 furlongs out, the partnership got the better of HERO’S STORY and Matt Ennis in the final couple of furlongs to stay on and win by 3 1/4 lengths. 3rd was Emily Bullock with BELLE PEINTURE.
Many congratulations to Gary and to winning connections! Our thanks go to sponsors Betfair for these great race riding experiences for our novice amateur flat jockeys.
The series now moves on to Ripon for the finale on Monday 29 August.
