LEWIS STONES enjoys 1st win as an amateur jockey at Catterick
Congratulations to Lewis Stones on a memorable 33/1 win today when victorious at Catterick for Mick Mullineaux on VERY FIRST BLADE.
This was Lewis’s first win as an amateur jockey although his second career win, having won with the same horse at Southwell on the All-Weather back in January of this year when an apprentice in a Hands and Heels. What a great partnership! No wonder Lewis announced in the winner’s enclosure that VERY FIRST BLADE is his favourite horse!
15 went to post and VERY FIRST BLADE travelled well in mid-division before making headway over a furlong out and laying down a challenge inside the final furlong to win by a head from Serena Brotherton and Ruth Carr’s WHIPPHOUND with Simon Walker and Noel Wilson’s LONGROOM a head back in third. What a finish!
WELL DONE Lewis!
