Preview: East Cornwall Pony Races, Great Trethew, Sunday March 30th

There are some new faces at the East Cornwall point to point pony races with local Kiana James-Thomas hoping to take the spoils on her first outing on Dinky By Design in the 138 race.

James Armstrong has learned the ropes on the ultra-consistent My Golden Dream and he takes the reins on a new pony, Menedh Jumping Jack Flash for the first time. Chad Bament has his second ever race ride on Shammi and they will be hoping to keep tabs on Tyler Heard on The Jobs Not Straight and Tamby Welch on Angelic.

The 148 race sees a match between the Treneer brothers Barnaby and Michael – Barnaby rides Tarka with Michael on Roy Boy Green.

The first pony race is now off at 12 noon as the point to point, usually the course’s second meeting, hosts two extra races, having had to abandon the first meeting at the course due to wet weather.
