Tom Midgley enjoys 1st career success with Betfair at Thirsk!



The opener at Thirsk on Tuesday evening was the 4th race in this year’s Betfair Novice Riders Series with 8 runners and riders racing over 7 furlongs under the watchful eye of BHA Jockey Coach Russ Garritty.

Many congratulations to Tom Midgley on a great ride on his father’s START TIME making all and running on well inside the final furlong to win by a couple of lengths. Billy Garritty was 2nd on Richard Fahey’s KHELMAN a neck in front of Marcus Haigh on SIZE MATTERS. This was Tom’s first career winner so a day for him never to forget – well done!

Many thanks to our sponsors Betfair for this excellent series and thanks too to Thirsk Executive for their help and support.

The series now moves on to Nottingham this Friday.
