The third race in the Betfair novice riders series took place at Redcar on Wednesday 1st August when 13 ran over a mile.
Always handy and happy to track the leaders, Amy Collier sent on Karen Tutty‘s THORNABY NASH from about 3 furlongs out to go clear about a furlong from home. They went on to win comfortably by 3 1/4 lengths from Billy Garritty and MONSIEUR JIMMY with Harriett Lees third.
Well done to Amy on a great success, this being her second win from only three rides this season out of a total of 5 career rides. Many congratulations to winning connections!🏆👏🥂🍾
Many thanks as always to Jockey Coach Tim Reed and to Redcar Racecourse Amy Fair for their help and support.
Beverley’s Lady Jane Bethell Memorial Handicap was enjoyed by our lady riders on Tuesday 31st July with 2 divisions of 9 runners over a mile and a furlong.
It proved to be a day to remember for Emily Easterby winning Division 1 on her father’s BREATHABLE, always close up and ridden clear a furlong from home to score by a couple of lengths from Joanna Mason on PALINDROME with Becky Smith third.
More was to follow in Division 2 when Emily rode a similar race to make all and once again deny her cousin Joanna by winning with BOLLIN JOAN for her father, despite the mare trying to pull herself up about a furlong out! Jo was just over a length away second aboard AELIUS and Serena Brotherton a short head third.
This was Emily’s first ever double under Rules and a great way to round off the card. It also propelled Emily into the lead for the ladies championship. Well done to Emily and winning connections on such a memorable day.🏆🏆👏👌👌🥂
The pro/am ladies Silk Series continued at Royal Windsor last Monday evening, 30th July. 15 ran over 6 furlongs with Jamie Osborne’s VEGAS BOY making all under Alexandra Bell and, despite hanging left in the final couple of furlongs, the partnership just held on by a short head from Arabella Tucker and John Flint’s WINKLEMANN, with Kathy Begley a length and a half third.
Congratulations to Alexandra on a first career win – a great achievement especially when competing against professionals!
It was good to see three amateurs occupying the first three places, and many congratulations to Alexandra and winning connections on their tremendous success!🏆🏇🌬👏👍🍾🥂
