Mid Devon P2P, Black Forest Lodge Pony Racing Preview and entries, 1 Feb 2015

Website_MDPonies_Banner

The pony racing season in the Devon and Cornwall area kicks off on February 1 at the Mid Devon point to point at Black Forest Lodge. Bumper entries have been received and both races look likely to be fascinating contests.

The 138 race is off at 11am and there are 10 entries. Local riders who spectators will already know include Chad Bament, Walter Fisher-Barnett and national Racetech 138 points champion Tamby Welch, the latter on a new pony, Churchill. Hamish Clarke from the Wessex area has Talponciau Perfect Print entered and there are plenty of visiting ponies and riders to ensure a fast and furious pace.

The 148s are off at 11.20am and riders there include William Cox on Shotgun Minnie, Conor Brace on Don’t Tell Dai, Thomasina Eyston on Springs. James Armstrong and Tamby Welch have their first 148 rides on Igo Zuminov and Vadlawalkover respectively. Nine go to post.

Lots of jockeys have now come through the pony racing ranks and it is a great opportunity to see some stars of the future hone their skills.

If you are interested in having a go, come along and watch and, be assured, you do not need a speedy racing pony to get started. A fit hunting pony is fine and all the riders started out on their pony club ponies. If you get together with your friends, you would be able to have a race within a race at your local hunt meeting. For more details of the first time rider scheme, contact area organiser Kelvin Heard on 07595 651700.
