Exciting opportunity for an amateur rider at Anthony and Rachael Honeyball

Anthony and Rachael Honeyball have an exciting new opportunity for an amateur rider for the 2017-2018 season with the guaranteed ride on seasoned chaser As De Fer in point-to-points.

The Honeyballs are based near Beaminster in Dorset where they train 40 or so horses in exceptional facilities including a vast indoor school and a gallops which has produced many graded winners under rules.

Last season Anthony trained 32 winners, his best so far with nearly £270,000 in prize money. The figures are supported by consistently solid results over several seasons as Anthony and Rachael, a former leading jockey, continue to make their mark.

They enjoy the patronage of leading jumps owner JP McManus whose Regal Encore won the listed Lavazza Jolie Silver Cup at Ascot in December. Last season they also saddled Fountains Windfall to win Aintree’s Grade 3 Gaskells Handicap Hurdle.

As well as the ride on As De Fer, a veteran of 36 races with six wins to his credit, the successful applicant will also benefit from regular lessons, including grid work, with Olympic pentathlete coach Jabeena Maslin in the indoor school. Accommodation is available if required.

Lakeside location for best of British point-to-pointing

Britain’s 2014/15 point-to-point season is to be celebrated in style at a stunning new venue and with a record-breaking champion to honour.

The Four Pillars Hotel, a lakeside location within Cotswold Water Park in Gloucestershire, is to be the stage for the National Awards Dinner and Dance, which takes place on Saturday, November 14, during Cheltenham’s Open Meeting. The effervescent ‘At The Races’ presenter Luke Harvey, is to host the glittering event.

Heading a star cast of champions and winners from the past season will be Will Biddick, who smashed the British record for victories in one season, taking the previous best of 56 to a new high of 68 wins.

Cornishman Biddick has won the Fuller’s Brewery Leading men’s title for the past four years, while Gina Andrews, will step up to receive the women’s championship for the second time after a four-year gap – her sister, Bridget, now a conditional jockey, was the previous season’s champion.

16 year old, Harry Cobden, now a conditional jockey with champion jumps trainer, Paul Nicholls will receive the Fuller’s Brewery male novice riders’ prize, while Lara Mahon, takes the Fullers Brewery female novices’ award.

Cobden will also receive a share of the Connolly’s RED MILLS champion point-to-pointer award, which goes jointly to his horse Cock of The Rock and to Rosie’s Peacock, owned, trained and bred by David Llewellyn. Both horses won seven times last season. Jack Barber and Rachael Green – who has since become Mrs Anthony Honeyball – will share the Connolly’s-sponsored trainer’s title, while Nick Wright, who is chairman of the Point-to-Point Racing Company, gains the champion owner award.

Other prizes on the night include the Jockey Club Leading Novice Mare award, for which the £500 prize this year goes to Audrey Goodwin the owner of Miss Gotaway. Mickey Bowen, Ciaran Gethings and Claire Hart respectively pick up the Point-to-Point Racing Company-sponsored champion hunter chase trainer and rider honours.

Tickets costing £80 a head are available from the Point-to-Point Authority, so book your seat and be part of a celebration of Britain’s point-to-point champions and a great party.

Preview: Torrington Farmers Point-To-Point, Chapelton Barton, Near Umberleigh, North Devon, Saturday 13th June 2015

Website_U_TF_Preview_Banner
written by Donna Harris

Next weekend will see the final Point-to-Point meeting of the season take place at Chapleton Barton, Umberleigh, where the Torrington Farmers host their meeting as the curtain closer for the season. There are six races on offer with the action starting at 2pm. The Devon & Cornwall area pony racing follows the main races, with the 138cm and under, followed by the 148cm pony race.

With the leading horse title still to be decided, both Cock Of The Rock and Rosies Peacock are entered here in the Davisons Chartered Accountant-sponsored Men’s Open. Each seeking their eighth win of the season, Cock of The Rock for trainer Rachael Green under owner/rider Harry Cobden, was unable to clock up a win at Bratton last weekend. Rosies Peacock’s connections skipped last weekend and could take the title if coming out fresh here for the David Llewellyn team. Harry Cobden has another possible ride with entry Silver Token who is stable mate to Cock Of The Rock. Should Silver Token or any other runner win the race, then the title would be shared between Rosies Peacock and Cock Of The Rock.

The Confined race, sponsored by Devonshire Motors of Barnstaple, heads up the action. This could turn into a dual between Pasternak Jack for the Woollacott team, and the Roy Smith-trained Just Seven. Both horses ran last well last weekend clocking up similar times in their respective races.

Outside raider, Captain Camelot had been well fancied to take the Restricted race at the Trecoed meeting last weekend. He finished second, and could well be the favourite here in the Captain Tim Forester Memorial Restricted race. Trainer Paul Phillips entry Tandori looks a danger having run a good second at Hackwood Park.

Mikey Bowen has entered both Sir Du Bearn and Cygnet in the E.J.Snell & Sons Ltd-sponsored Ladies Open race. Both horses ran last weekend, with Sir Du Bearn winning at Trecoed under Jodie Hughes, and Cygnet running well in the Men’s Open in third. The danger looks to be Awesome George for the Mahon team, who has had time to recover from his second at Garthorpe. Tim Underwood has Carnglave Cat entered and the trainer looks to be chasing Rachael Green for the National Trainer title for yards with seven horses or less. Carnglave Cat is already on a seasons hat-trick, the latest when winning at Peper Harow in Surrey.

Alfie The Great could go well in the Intermediate race, having notched up a quick time at Garthorpe. Green Winter is another to note, having won his Restricted easily at Hereford. The surprise could be Sedgemoor Top Bid for the Tickle team, who could follow-up on his two wins at the Flete Park meetings. This race is sponsored by Claire Howarth of Barum Stud.

Finally those catching the eye in the Smallridge Bros Ltd-sponsored Open Maiden race are Princess Tina, after her second at Lydstep, and Kilcoman Wizard having clocked up seconds at Trebudannon and Cothelstone.

All on course facilities are on offer with bar, hot food, bookies and a host of trade stands, and a super party atmosphere. Entrance to the course is £10 per person, with children under 16 free. Please support the IJF bucket collection at the meeting, which is collecting for young jockey Ed Barrett who was injured at Upcott Cross in April.

The course is located on A377, 5m SE of Barnstaple – EX37 9EB.

REPORT ON THE EAST CORNWALL  POINT-TO-POINT AT GREAT TRETHEW SUNDAY 29thMARCH 2015

Website_EC2_Report_Banner
WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

THE worst of the rain relented during the afternoon but there was no respite from the strong, blustery wind at Great Trethew, where the six bookmakers present operated from the cosy shelter of small marquee.

The strength of the wind had caused problems before the first race in which the last fence on the uphill section had to be omitted when it proved impossible to get the wings erected. Fortunately jockeys in the first race reported no adverse effects from the gusty wind in this two and a half miles Maiden won by Jimmy Frost’s four-year-old  Arty Bella. Bryony Frost was content to bide her time on the filly, who shook off another previously un-raced youngster in Applesolutely. “ My brother Hadden bought her at Ascot last June unbroken. She is from the family of Colonian Queen and her grandam was Colonial Princess who won point-to-points. I have done a lot of work on her. She didn’t make a mistake today and I can’t fault her guts,” reported the 19-year-old jockey.

Two progressive young pointers fought out the finish of the Mixed Open. The favourite Blazing Whale was struggling from the top of the hill as seven-year-olds Welstonedruid and Whenharrymetsally dominated the closing stages. It was the Robert Chanin trained Welstonedruid who saw the trip out best after his main rival blundered her chance away at the last. “This is his first Open win. He just keeps galloping and will stay four miles,” said the Thorverton trainer, intimating that Upcott Cross or Flete Park could be next on the agenda. The gelding was something of a chance ride for Tom Chanin, whose brother Ian normally has the ride. “I am just standing in for Ian today because he has gone to the Cotley,” said the winning rider.

Matt Hampton had to settle for second best on Whenharrymetsally, but reached the winner’s enclosure in the Intermediate thanks to Blinding Lights. “He is not a speed horse but stays and we will probably go for the Exeter Racecourse Final,” remarked the winner’s owner/trainer Mary Sanderson.

The Open Maiden for four to seven-year-olds attracted 12 runners and went to a previously un-raced youngster in six-year-old Cailleach Annie. The winner drew clear at the last jump as her main pursuer Brandy and Red (Pippa Glanville) got tired. “I got her from Jay Leahy in Cork as a three-year-old but she is big and has taken time to come to herself. She is a half sister to Fear Glic who won over hurdles for me,” explained owner/trainer Jackie Du Plessis. The winner was ridden by 19-year-old David Noonan who is based with David Pipe. “I have now had six point-to-point winners and two under rules said the Irish born jockey.

Although based in Dorset with Anthony Honeyball, Harry Cobden is currently in a narrow lead (from David Noonan) for this year’s Devon & Cornwall male novice riders’ title. The 16-year-old reinforced his lead with a facile victory on Rachael Green’s grey Silver Token in the PPORA Novice Riders’ contest. 

Another novice rider on the score sheet was Jake Bament who took his career total to five when Great Camanoe just outstayed Theatre Goer to win the Restricted. “He was on and off the bridle but battled on well for me,” said the 18-year-old jockey who works for Harry Fry. Great Camanoe, who was repeating his course win three weeks ago, is owned and trained by Rebecca Welch. “Another by Morpeth and he is home bred from a tiny un-raced Rakaposhi King mare bred by my late father,” explained Rebecca.
