FOUR BURROW AT TREBUDANNON – EASTER MONDAY

A very large and enthusiastic Easter Monday crowd enjoyed the seven races on good going at this popular Cornish track.

The highlights were a first treble for jockey Jake Bament, a first winner for Amy Bennalick, plus Josh Newman reaching his century of winners.
Five-year-old mare Walkin Out followed up her recent course win with another exhilarating performance to set up a treble for Jake Bament in the Sportsmans Arms sponsored Members’ race. Leading from start to finish and jumping quickly and accurately to win in the fastest time of the day, the result was never in doubt. “She will keep running for the rest of the season and may go for a prestigious mares race at the Berkeley next weekend”, said Lisa Jefford, wife of trainer Leslie.

The 24-year-old jockey went on to steer Eric The Third to a six lengths success in the Chris and Sarita Perkins Conditions event. John Heard handles this useful veteran pointer near Okehampton for a small syndicate and described him as “A real trier but a bit one paced and likes firm ground.”

Looking For Larry gave Bament his treble when just overhauling Ask The Lady to win the Mitchell and Webber Restricted. “He was very green and will come on for the run,” reported the jockey. Owner Jill Dennis described her four-year-old as a “big baby we bred from our pointer Tavira. The vet said she was not in foal and she went to be covered in Ireland, but over there she produced the foal by Telescope we called Looking For Larry. She is now in foal to Sixties Icon. Looking For Larry will go to the sales.”

It was almost a four-timer for Bament in the Kivells Maiden as his mount Summerleaze was left in the lead after the last. At this juncture Mykonos Ammos, who had just taken the lead, swerved and lost his rider Fionn Summers as he appeared to dart for the exit gate. The tiring Summerleaze was then headed close home by 14-1 outsider Little Peachey who went on to give 23-year-old Amy Bennalick her first winner. Amy, from Callington, rides out for the winner’s owner/trainer Jackie du Plessis.

Josh Newman reached his century of pointing winners on Between You and Me in the Truro Tractors Maiden for four and five-year-olds. Neil Mclean trains the sturdy Presenting gelding, bought at Goffs Doncaster sales last May, on behalf of John and Floss Symes. The gelding swept past Kesa Great approaching the last and looks sure to improve further. “He had lost his action when disappointing at the undulating Cotley course last time and was much happier on this flatter track,” explained connections.

Oistrakh Le Noir was an impressive winner of the David & Gail Ellis sponsored Ladies’ Open, drawing well clear of front running Bingo D’Olivate in the home straight. A former hurdles winner who had scored on his pointing debut at Ffos Las last November, the eight-year-old is trained by Ed Partridge, and was led up by his wife better known as Lizzie Kelly. “He might be the type for next year’s Aintree Foxhunters,” remarked the trainer. On this performance he would not be out of place in that company. Jockey Kate Gowing, 24, gave her mount a very confident ride to gain her 16th career victory and said. “He had the hood back on and we changed tactics. He made the running at Milborne last time (fell at the last) and settled better in behind today.”

Footloose has been a most progressive pointer this season and won for the fifth time, leading from three out to win to beat River Myth in the Trebudannon Manor Cornish National Men’s Open. Arron Butterfield, based with Colin Tizzard, has been in the saddle each time. Arron’s father Alex confirmed that Footloose will be turned out now for the summer.

FLETE PARK RACES (DARTMOOR) AT FLETE PARK ON SATURDAY 16th APRIL 2022

“And from midst of the road to the roadside shifting
The crowd of the world on foot went drifting,
Standing aside on the trodden grass
To chaff as they let the traffic pass.
Then back they flooded, singing and cheering,
Plodding forward and disappearing,
Up to the course to take their places,
To lunch and gamble and see the races”

From the poem Right Royal by John Masefield 1876 – 1967

A massive holiday crowd enjoyed warm sunshine and good racing at Flete Park where two overflow car parks had to be deployed.

Two young jockeys stole the headlines. Otis Morgan recorded his first double and Chad Bament rode his first winner.

17=year-old Otis Morgan took the Members’ sponsored by A Salon Called Fish on the gutsy 13-year-old Skylander, and followed up when another veteran Alternatif made most of the running to win the Full Circle Motors Conditions event. Frome based Annie Bacon saddled each of these winners in the colours of the 18 strong Dartmoor Racing Club.

“I am studying for A levels in geography, philosophy and business at Sherborne school and get to ride out at Annie and Josh (Cameron’s) yard on weekends and school holidays” said the young rider who had ridden Skylander to success here last season.

Otis completed his double on another veteran pointer Alternatif who finished alone as the outsider of three in the Conditions race after Board of Trade had fallen at the final ditch and Jeremy Central was pulled up by Will Biddick approaching the last when well held. “I always knew that Will was chasing but I had so much in the tank down the hill,” reported the enthusiastic winning rider.

Talk of the South had not won for four years but readily overhauled Dan’s The Man jumping the last to take the Oriental Club Owner/Trainer event and give Chad Bament his first pointing winner. “I work for Anthony Honeyball and will be 19 next week,” said the rider. Chad’s mother Helen, who trains the family owned gelding at Fremington near Barnstaple said, “I am delighted for Chad who won a pony race here. We bought Talk of the South from Gordon Chambers.”

Honest Opinion was a thoroughly game winner of the Wainhomes Restricted, stretching clear of Quintin’s Man and King’s Quay approaching the last.”She is a game little mare, very honest,” remarked jockey Darren Edwards who was partnering his 13th winner of the season. Trainer Dean Summersby was saddling his third winner of the week which included his first hunter chase success at Exeter two days previously.  The yard had endured quite a lean spell and Dean said. “The horses were not right until recently. It was difficult to put a finger on it but we seem to have turned a corner now.

Josh Newman’s CV includes a Cheltenham festival winner and Minimalistic’s Charles Stanley Intermediate win gave the Somerset rider his 99th pointing success. Minimalistic belongs to 80-year-old Edward and Sue Darke and is regularly ridden out by each of them.  

Josh had to wait for Easter Monday for his century as Hold Me Tight filled the runner up spot behind all the way winner Champions Hill (Conor Houlihan) who was making his English debut in the nine runner Luscombe May Maiden. Owner/trainer George Bielby  said, “Conor told us about this horse 18 months ago. We hope to come back here in two weeks time for the Restricted.” One of the tallest riders on the circuit, Conor had sourced the gelding from his Dungarven based uncle David Kiely, and was partnering his 12th career winner. He has recently joined the Paul Nicholls yard as a pupil assistant.

Paul had dashed from Newton Abbot to see his daughter Olive partner Virak to victory in the two runner Totnes and Bridgetown Races Co  Mixed Open over four miles. “ They have done a fantastic job with the watering here,” was a nice tribute from a champion trainer.  In the smallest field of the day Virak and Broadclyst (Anna Johnston) raced stride for stride until Virak took control on the run in. “I was a bit worried two out, but he is so clever and saved his best until he saw the winning post,” said the promising 16-year-old jockey who was scoring for the seventh time in her first season.
