The popular local grey Dicky Bob has been entered in the opening Condy Mathias-sponsored Members race. He took this race last season here as a walkover and then went on to win the Mixed Open. Trainer Verity Nicholls has only entered him in this race here with his challengers all holding entries later in the day. Recent Kilworthy winner Ballyvodock is an eye catching new recruit for the Gordon Chambers yard, and could be the one to tackle Dicky Bob here. It’s All Or Nothing is already a three times course winner here but connections may choose the later Confined race, whilst entry Clondaw Bunny was held in second at Kilworthy to Ballyvodock, and could be another to bypass this race for the Confined.

Kernal Victor is another to stand out in the conditions race having clocked up some decent form including three Men’s Open races in 2017, trainer Ed Walker could get some improvement on his recent place form.

Trainer Heidi Lewis has four entries in the opening Pannell Commercials-sponsored Members race, Belharbour Two won last weekend at Buckfastleigh, so may bypass this meeting. Acadian is another of the Lewis team entries who would be a short price here with the bookies, having won well at Wadebridge. They may have to tackle Cloudy Music from the Summersby yard, also a winner last weekend, should go close if turning up for a quick fire double under jockey Darren Edwards, who has just clocked up his 250th winner.

The feature race of the day is the Condy Mathias Mixed Open which is a qualifier for finals at both Cheltenham and Stratford in May. Local trainer Dean Summersby has entered Chosen Lucky, a winner of 11 out of his 14 starts to date , with recent wins at Wadebridge and Great Trethew, and could see Darren Edwards back on board to set the pace here. Entry Jack Snipe is the highest rated having won an Open at Badbury Rings under jockey Shane Quinlan for trainer Robert Hawker, but also holds an entry at both Milbourne St Andrew and Ston Easton this weekend. Navanman (John Heard) is another Open winner and he has clocked up four wins this season including two Mixed Opens and an Open at Charlton Horthorne two weeks ago and will need to defy top weight under regular jockey Bryan Carver, who himself rode a Hunter Chase winner at Exeter earlier this week. The combination are also entered at Milborne St Andrew on Saturday. The popular grey Dicky Bob for trainer Verity Nicholls, is already a dual course winner, and could be a likely runner to score his hat-trick at the course. He could again be partnered by young jockey Tomasina Eyston who had an early unlucky unseat last weekend at Buckfastleigh.

Pony Racing 12 noon, 1st PtP Race 1.00pm.

Today’s very high winds, with occasional blustery showers, sure challenged our volunteers preparing for Sunday’s Buckfastleigh meeting.

Report: Torrington Farmers Point-to-Point, Chapleton Barton, near Umberleigh, Saturday June 14 2014

ANOTHER thrilling Point-to-Point season came to a close last weekend, when the Torrington Farmers hosted their meeting at Umberleigh on Saturday.

Sizzling sunshine welcomed the large crowd, who were treated to some first class horse racing action. The drying conditions had favoured the horses who relished the faster going.

The Devonshire Motors of Barnstaple-sponsored Confined race headed up the action, with all eyes watching the two leading ladies, Bridget Andrews and Jacqueline Coward who was just one race behind in the National table. Bridget Andrews had taken up the ride on Checkerboard , from the Devon based Kayley Woollacott’s yard, and set the pace early on. Right Enough had been sent off odds-on favourite, but a mistake at the ditch under jockey Tom Chanin took them out of the race. Jacqueline Cowards mount Meilyr was unable to challenge, and a heavy fall on the final circuit, resulted in Jacqueline heading off to hospital with a suspect dislocated and fractured collar bone, and out of the title race. In the final circuit Nicto De Beauchene under Josh Guerriero, chased the leader over the second last, but Checkerboard loving the going, was pushed out to the line to win by a short head, to give jockey Bridget Andrews the National leading lady title.

Delighted Bridget Andrews quoted ” I had an easy lead, I was given a tip to be in front at bottom of hill.” Bridget only had confirmation of her ride on Checkerboard the day before, from regular yard jockey Jamie Thomas. “One day Jamie might get the favour back,”  Bridget said beaming.

Checkerboards trainer Kayley Woollacott said “He is a different horse this week, he hates the rain, it is the first time this year he has had sunshine on his back and the ground he likes.” She added “He is now up for sale, an ideal novice ride, he even got me around safely early on in the season!.”

There was a delay before the Capt.Tim Forster Memorial Restricted race sponsored by Kivells, whilst awaiting a replacement ambulance to arrive, and the injured Jacqueline Coward to be ferried to hospital. It was a disappointing day for her team, having traveled three of her own horses down from Yorkshire. Once the Restricted race started the well fancied Zakopany from the Luke Price team was sent off favourite, but soon struggled. As the race unfolded, the Maria Lewis-trained Kawana Cove was making eye catching progress under Jamie Thomas, having survived a mistake at the ditch, he took up the running two out. His nearest pursuer Pasternak Jack was ridden by Heidi Lewis, who normally has the ride on her family owned horse Kawana Cove, but had stayed loyal to Pasternak Jack’s connections. A brilliant jump at the last saw Jamie Thomas take the race on Kawana Cove four lengths ahead of the Heidi Lewis-ridden Pasternak Jack.

“Heidi does all the work at home”, stated father David Lewis, “We bought him as a schoolmaster from Richard Barber, we cant believe he was 66-1 last weekend, and has won this as 2-1 second favourite”, Mum Maria had been watching up in the video tower, and was thrilled to see her horse Kawana Cove come home first, but was also willing on the second place Pasternak Jack under daughter Heidi.

Findlay’s Find justified favourtism under jockey David Mansell, in taking the Men’s Open race by ten lengths with a comfortable win, leaving Gallaflynn heading the chasing pack, taking second place under jockey Matthew Barber. Findlay’s Find owner, Paul Miles stated ” We had bought him for £450 and a pony, we turned down an offer of £50,000 when he was five after he won a three and a half miler at MerthyrTidfil, we are considering race options for the future.”

Leading area lady jockey Bryony Frost took the Ladies’ Open race, sponsored by E.J.Snell & Sons, on Templer. This race involved a pile up, seeing two of the challenging horses taken out of the race on the final circuit, by a loose horse. Bryony had ridden a patient race and had managed to avoid the crash, getting Templer, trained by mum Nikki at Buckfastleigh, home seven lengths ahead of  Rock Of Fife ridden by Chloe Swaffield. Jopero under Hannah Welch and Florence Mary under Lucy Mager were the two which were hampered by the loose horse bringing them both down and out of the race.

Jockey Bryony Frost stated ” I was able to miss most of the trouble, I was pushed out into corn field, but just growled at Templer and he picked up again,” she added “I was confident coming up the hill and we were ready to challenge.” Bryony’s father Jim said “Templer won the Isle of Wight Grand National with Haddon, he had previously won eleven National Hunt races, he fell out of love with racing, and a change of yard cheered him up. He now deserves retirement, and will go team chasing for new owner Mike Smith”.

Claire Howarth of The Barum Stud-sponsored the Intermediate race. Of the four runners, Rainbow Trout under Mark Wall was sent off odds-on favourite, but was no match for Bathwick Scanno under jockey David Noonan. Seeing the Novice Men’s title within reach, Noonan kicked on up the final hill, and was eight lengths clear two out, finishing to win by 16 lengths, with Rainbow Trout in second. This put David Noonan needing a win in the Maiden race to snatch the Novice Men’s title from leader Chester Williams.

Bathwick Scanno is owned by the Rising Sun Partnership based near Taunton. Joint owner Norman Cossey stated “We bought the horse through Gerry Supple, he is a very kind horse, very small, only a pony, but loves the firmer ground, all credit to Teresa Clark our trainer.”

All was set with the final Point race of the season, The Smallridge Bro-sponsored Open Maiden race. David Noonan got the leg-up on Grey Dream, another trained by Teresa Clark, and was in with a real chance to follow-up on his second at Bratton the weekend before. All was going Noonan’s way leading the fifteen runner field on the final circuit, but then came the challenge of Redbridge Rebel under Matthew Barber, taking over at the last to win by three lengths, with the gallant Grey Dream in second, and a good run by Kilcolman Wizard under Michael Heard third.

Jockey Matthew Barber quoted ” It was a bit of a tactical race, Redbridge Rebel just took me there, I was a passenger, I thought at the last it was fly or die.”

Trainer Marc Barber said “We plan to give him a couple of weeks off and then may bring him out in July if we can find a Handicap Chase for him.”

Two pony races finished the day’s events. The 138cm went to Cornwalls young Tyler Heard on the five year old The Jobs Not Straight. The 148cm race going to sixteen year old Theo Gillard on Hawksfield Flyer, a talented young jockey who would be well worth following if progressing onto horses next season.

After the summer break, Point-to-Point action for the 2014-2015 looks to start again at the end of November, keep an eye for fixture list on www.horseraces-dc.com

Torrington Farmers, Umberleigh, Saturday 15 June 2013 Report

The curtain closed on another thrilling Point-to-Point season last Saturday when the Torrington Farmers hosted its meeting at Umberleigh in North Devon. Despite the recent rain the going was officially described as good to firm, firm in places.

Deb’s Dasher under Robbie Henderson set the pace in the Confined with Roll On Rose and Bon Viveur tracking behind. Roll On Rose looked set to challenge but Deb’s Dasher asserted his authority with Robbie Henderson soon getting the gelding back on the bridle and with a good jump at the last ditch saw the combination having an eight length lead over the last with Roll On Rose having to settle for second and Bon Viveur back in third having made a few jumping errors. Deb’s Dasher is trained by area leading trainer Kayley Jones, who commented:

“I was worried when Deb’s Dasher came off the bridle, and relieved when he came back on. Richard Woollacott had bred him and rode his dam Jenta Equilibra to win whilst in foal.”

Jockey Robbie Henderson added that “He didn’t travel well on the first circuit and needed a horse upsides to wake him up.”

The Relief Pitcher sired gelding is jointly owned by Sonia Gardener & Deborah Bean. Deborah was unable to join in the celebrations as she had to attend a wedding.

Four runners lined up for the Kivells sponsored Restricted race which was run in memory of Captain Tim Forster. Milburn won this under Lizzy Kelly for trainer Gail Haywood, having taken over the running from Lemonade Jack on the second circuit, with a close battle, over the second last, Milburn stayed on finishing two lengths ahead of Lemonade Jack. Trainer Gail Haywood is based at Moretonhampstead and is joint owner with Roly Stuart-Jarvis. She commented:

“Milburn is tough and improving, has run four times, the first was awful looking like he had never galloped before. I thought I had got it all wrong, I must thank the local farmer John Reddaway who rents me his gallops, without his help I wouldn’t be able to train.”

Gail bought Milburn as a two-year-old and Roly joined in to help financially; with regard to next season, Gail said: “The plan is to run him under Rules.”

In the Mens Open Vertigo Dore under Kieran Buckley was sent off 6-4 joint favourite with Threapwood, but they failed to get close to Cinaman, who under Bradley Gibbs made virtually all setting a strong pace. His nearest challenger Threapwood under National Champion jockey Will Biddick, tried to challenge on the final circuit, but the move was soon covered by Bradley Gibbs getting Cinaman home to win by three lengths. Owner Mark Roberts stated:
“The horse went wrong last year and had a leg infection, he is fine now, he jumps for fun and enjoys front running, we would have run him at Stratford but he was balloted out. Cinaman stands only 15hh and had a previous Hurdle win when at Tim Vaughan’s yard.

Nine lined up for the Ladies Open and Watch The Birdie is definitely a horse to watch for the future. Having been running on the flat back in February the mare has quickly progressed notching up four point wins in seven weeks. She won the race impressively beating Nipper John by ten lengths. Owner Keith Pritchard claimed:

“I had watched the mare running in a seller so I rang up Ron Harris to see if she was for sale. She had been placed second in a Hurdle only being beaten by a length at Southwell, I knew she had potential but thought it could take her two years.”

Jockey Hannah Lewis commented: “She is the easiest winner I think I have ever ridden.”

In the Barum Stud sponsored Intermediate, winner Gallaflynn made all under leading Wales & West jockey Matthew Barber. Bathwick Scanno whose jockey Jamie Bargary has snatched the local area male novice jockey award, mounted a challenge but had to settle for second when jumping errors may have cost him the race, with Railway Vic under leading area lady jockey Bryony Frost all out in third. Gallaflynn’s owner John Miles from Gelligaer South Wales bought the horse out of Ireland on the advice of trainer Mark Barber who claimed; “The horse is improving all the time and plans for next season maybe to aim at Hunter Chases.”

With the Open Maiden divided on the day, ten runners set off in the first division. This was a race for the Merv Woodward owned/trained and ridden Double Fun to score, having had to settle for second last week behind My Runaway at Bratton Brown. Tracking the pace setter Broadway Cord, Double Fun reeled in the leader before the final ditch going on to score by seven lengths ahead of the Tom Chanin ridden Posh Totty and Back In Vogue third. The jubilant rider quoted:

“I bought Double Fun from Ascot as she is a half sister to Man Of Leisure who I won on for the Dutfield family. I broke her myself and ran her in two Bumpers out of Martin Hills yard. I am very pleased as Double Trigger’s offspring usually mature at eight years plus, we tried her in blinkers which made her concentrate and a tongue tie after she choked a bit a Cothelstone – the tongue tie today seems to have done the trick.”

The final race of the season was the second division of the Open Maiden. Eight went to post with the Luke Price-trained Coolbach setting the pace, until Billy Congo took over at the second last with Coolbach struggling up the final hill. Billy Congo then nodded badly on landing at the last, unseating jockey Alan John and leaving punters thinking Coolbach would hold on, but Winning Note under leading area Lady jockey Bryony Frost pushed on up the home straight snatching the win.

It was a great family triumph, trainer Nikki Frost said: “She got jumped into at Trebudannon and had six weeks off after being stitched up by one of our vets Paul Kane, so it was down to Bryony to get her fit again.” Owner Jimmy Frost added: “She was sent over from France by Peter Jones and is up for sale.”

All that’s left this season is the popular Dinner & Dance and Award Ceremony which is open to all, to be held at the Holiday Inn Plymouth on Friday 12th July, featuring guest speaker Anthony Knott (former owner of Hunt Ball), a live band, videos of the season and a bucking bronco.

Tiverton Staghounds, Bratton Down Preview

The penultimate Point-to-Point of the season takes place at the scenic Bratton Down course this weekend where over one hundred entries have been received for the six race card which starts at 2pm and will offer a great way to spend a summers afternoon.

The competition will be stronger than ever with additional prizes for the leading horses, trainers and jockeys scoring the most points over the three meetings held at the course. The action kicks off with the Winston Pincombe Hunt Members race in which Come What Augustus is among the entries, having won this race last year and although his form has been disappointing this season the drying ground may suit. Another entry from the Kayley Jones yard is My Runaway who ran seven lengths second in an Intermediate at Stafford Cross behind Rush”N”Roll and is another who could relish the drying conditions.

The Stags sponsored Open Maiden follows in which the Keith Cumings-trained Go On Henry could well be favourite after his two seconds one last month at Upcott Cross when Milburn got up by a short head to deny current leading Devon & Cornwall area jockey Josh Guerriero another win and second at Holincote behind Noble Legacy. Another looking to win a Maiden before the seasons out is the Camilla Bayliss-trained Dads Birthday after his second at Cothelstone three lengths behind Soul Native.

In the Intermediate the Lady Oaksey owned Chouromanesco is an interesting entry, having won his Maiden last season at Lockinge destroying his field by thirty lengths. Stalbridgeswansong ran second at Holnicote behind Roisini Bay and could score here for Will Biddick and the David Brace OBE -trained Son Of Swallow won his Restricted at Didmarton on good to firm.

Belsinni Ron from the Richard Barber team has strong claims in the Mens Open, which is sponsored by friends and family of the late Sid Tarr. Having only been beaten once in his six outings when the impressive Kirkleigh got up to beat him by a neck at Little Windsor, his latest win was at this course in May when he stayed on under jockey Jack Barber to beat Lucette Annie by three lengths. Round Tom from the same yard ran well under Will Biddick winning at Larkhill on good to firm beating Parstara by eight lengths.

The Greenslade Taylor & Hunt sponsored Ladies Open could see the Dick Bainbridge- trained Shernally take the spoils for jockey Jane Williams if connections do not run the mare at the Hunter Chase finals at Stratford on Friday. Also entered is Watch The Birdie for trainer Steven Bevan, he is progressive, unbeaten so far this season and had an easy Intermediate win at Trecoed when sent off odds-on favourite. Fiulin under Bryony Frost will be looking to settle a score having been disqualified after a win at Upcott Cross when weighed out incorrectly.

In the restricted Lord Samson had been running well in maidens all season before winning at  Upcott Cross under Josh Guerriero beating Storm Shadow by one and a half lengths. Second Alliance won his maiden at Pyle for trainer Luke Price twenty lengths ahead of Donttellmethat under Nick Williams.

On site are all on course facilities including a bar, bookies, refreshments and trade stands. Entrance is £20 per car load and £10 car and driver.

The course is located at Bratton Fleming nine miles north east of Barnstaple, 11 miles north of South Molton. Postcode EX31 4SG.
