Andy sent out stable star Ryalux (Richie McGrath) to win the Scottish Grand National, check the race video here: SGN April 12th 2003
Hopefully this is an omen for Jaxlight who is in today’s Bumper at the Grand National Festival on his first run for the yard.
Two runners today at Newcastle races, Jacarno runs in the 3.20 for The 100 Club.
Before that, Roberttown Rose makes her second racecourse appearance and a little bit of history in what is Newcastle Racecourse’s first ever Bumper on their Tapeta surface.
Good Luck to both horses and their connections.
Andy, Amy & Lord Franklin were on their travels again last night, this time to Kempton’s AW track. The horse finished a pleasing and staying on 6th to give his owners hope for his future prospects.
The official handicap ratings are published every Tuesday, these are yesterday’s.
Lord Franklin‘s third run since joining Andy was on the all weather course at Chelmsford City, the UK’s newsest racecourse. He was the yard’s first runner there and finished 4th. The racecourse got the thumbs up from his owners and from Andy and Amy.
Pity about the 462-mile round trip which made it a long day for connections.
Dudette makes her handicap debut today at Catterick. She’s the outsider of the five runners but the extra distance and the weights should help.
Members of The 100 Club gathered for Wetherby’s Boxing Day meeting to support Jacarno and Along Came Theo.
Jac was brought down in his race when a horse fell in front of him but thankfully he suffered no injury.
Theo gave them plenty to cheer as he looked to have his race won only to have the victory snatched from him close home by the champion jockey-ridden favourite.
