Becky Smith wins final ladies race of season
Well done Becky Smith for a fine win at Nottingham last night to close the Flat season for the ladies with the last mixed turf race of 2017. (The gentlemen have their last race there next Wednesday.)
15 went to post, with Serena Brotherton denied a last attempt at increasing her tally for the ladies title by a non-runner, and the three other leading ladies hot on Becky’s heels with Ella Mccain 3rd on ROYAL COSMIC for Richard Fahey, Abbie Mccain 4th for Clive Mulhall with BIGBADBOY and joint leader Joanna Mason 5th, and only 4 1/2 lengths between them. Ultimately the final placings for the ladies championship remained unaltered.
It was a thrilling finish with Becky aboard QUOTELINE DIRECT holding on in a photo by a short head to deny Jamie Brace and ENGLAND EXPECTS and win for boss Micky Hammond.
Well done Becky and a great end to an eventful ladies season! 👏🍾👍🏆🏇
