Zac Baker extends lead on gentlemen with Ludlow win
With the close of the Flat season tomorrow and our own amateur Flat season now put to bed, full focus is on our National Hunt season which is of course well under way.

Many congratulations to Zac Baker who extended his lead in the gentlemen’s championship with a fine win yesterday at Ludlow to make it 4 wins so far this season. Partnering ROBINSHILL (who had dropped Jamie Bargary at the final fence with the race at his mercy on his last run) Zac gave the horse a confident and patient ride and survived a jinx at the last to drive him out for an impressive 5 length victory.
Nigel Twiston-Davies said “The horse was desperately unlucky last time and the handicapper put him up 4 lb for basically getting beaten, which was hardly ideal. He jumped pretty well this time and Zac organised him at the last when seeing a nice stride – so all is well that ends well.”
Well done Zac! 🏆👏
