Our 2017 - A look back
The Racegoers Club Ownership experience continues to go from strength to strength and we have teamed up with some of the top trainers this year to deliver success. In 2017 we have had seven horses in training throughout the year, providing our owners with 23 runs (8 Flat, 15 Jumps) - producing 2 winners & 5 places.
Here were some of the highlights:
Theatre Rouge triumphs at Newton Abbot
Our Philip Hobbs trained mare Theatre Rouge produced her best performance on handicap debut when she won the 2m5f Handicap Hurdle on Easter Saturday. Ridden by Michel Nolan she jumped well and improved for the better ground to provide our owners with a day to remember.
Glacier Point comes good in July
It was a month to remember for Glacier Point and her owners as she finished second at Lingfield before winning at Chepstow and then finishing second again at Nottingham within the space of 25 days. Trained by Clive Cox, the Chepstow win came under a masterful ride from David Probert and backed up some of her very useful previous form.
Chilly Miss returns and hits the bar at Southwell
There was a heart warming story this summer as Chilly Miss returned from an injury which had been expected to end her racing career. Trainer Malcolm Jefferson had her fit and ready to return at Southwell in August and she ran four times at the same track in the second half of the year. Consistent as ever she came so close to recording a fourth career win when she was second under Aiden Blakemore in November.
Sammamish starts her career
It was great to see one of our latest recruits with Malcolm Jefferson, Sammamish, make her first two starts in bumpers at Wetherby and Sedgefield. Although she wasn't able to get competitive on either occasion she showed a good attitude and will have learnt a lot from both runs. Novice hurdles beckon in the New Year and we hope she will improve for a step up in distance.
