Well done to 22 year old Zac Baker who had a day to remember when riding at Bangor on Saturday with COLIN’S BROTHER comfortably winning the opening Handicap Chase for Nigel Twiston Davies and stablemate I AM COLIN making it Zac’s first double under Rules an hour later in the Ginger McCain Memorial Handicap Chase. Patiently ridden throughout, Zac bided his time and timed his run to perfection, producing I AM COLIN to stay on well after the last and win by a couple of lengths.
Trainer’s Assistant Carl Llewellyn was full of praise for Zac, saying after I AM COLIN’s victory “It was a lovely ride, he was very patient. He’s been with us for a few months now and is a lovely rider.” Zac is of course brother to Classic winning Flat jockey George, and when asked by the waiting press explained “I am his full brother. Can you not tell by my size or my nose?!”
Many congratulations to Zac and winning connections on a great double!
