Monday 17th October saw the last race of this seasons stayers championship. Riptide had a big lead going into the last leg and none of his main dangers were declared so that meant he had won the championship for a second time. The last leg is a conditions race so he had no chance to win but as the owners ‘Having a Mare’ syndicate were going up to collect there prize so we decided to run for the last time this season. It is a great series and one we targeted all year especially after being second last season!! Riptide had run consistently well all season and although he is now 10 showed he still has plenty of enthusiasm, so all being well will be back for more nest season!!
We have a new arrival to the yard today as Skint has joined the team. Owned by Tina Evans this 10 year old seems to have lost his way a little over the last couple of seasons so hopefully so Herefordshire air will do him some good!
