Preview: Devon & Cornwall pony racing finals

The Devon and Cornwall pony racing season comes to an end at the Torrington Farmers point to point with two races which will incorporate the area finals.

Both races will be hotly contested. There is a full house in the 138 race which will see the top ponies in the area take on The Jobs Not Straight and Tyler Heard from Cornwall who will be bidding for their first area championship – the pony having only started racing in England this season.

Tamby Welch will be eager to add maximum points to his tally on Angelic – he currently leads the 138 points series (The Jobs Not Straight has been running successfully in the Charles Owen racecourse series) – having run in more point to point pony races in the area and will face strong opposition from Fergus Gillard on Veno Star and Hamish Clarke on Talponciau Perfect Print. Ben Godfrey on Mocking Bird, Ben Cox on Diptford Moonwalker will be pushing for a win and look out for Chad Bament who only started pony racing this season. He has made great strides on Ginger Wizard and the pair will be suited by the sharp course. Luca Morgan on Milly and Lewis McDonald on Mini Tango complete the line up for what should prove to be a really competitive race.

The 148s will also be fast and furious. William Cox will be hoping for a good run from the Welch’s Total Eclipse and faces opposition from Welsh raider Conor Brace on Peateoh, Oliuvis Weatherlake on Aries, who beat Total Eclipse at Bratton, Theo Gillard on Hawksfield Flyer and current area points leader Thomasina Eyston on Springs.

Goldwells Gucci has been running well in the Charles Owen series for Harriet Godfrey, Ben Jones has had recent success on former Devon and Cornwall are pony Miss Mopsy and Michael Treneer will be hoping for a good run from Roy Boy Green.

This is the shortest of the series races so form on the longer courses of Upcott, Stafford Cross and Bratton Down may not hold up.

As the Devon and Cornwall area pony racing at the Torrington Farmers meeting is this year being run as an open race, the area finals will be contested within the race by those qualified, therefore the area champion will be the first qualified rider past the post, who will also receive the trophy in both the 138 and the 148 race.

Rosettes, prizes and T shirts will be awarded to the actual winners, placed ponies and all runners. Area finals rosettes will be awarded to qualified riders in order of finishing

Ponies who have qualified to run in the D and C final – by virtue of having run at least twice in the area prior to the final (D and C ponies automatically qualify) ; Wee Anthony, Veno Star, Talponciau Perfect Print; The Jobs Not Straight; Angelic; My Golden Dream; Bronze Lawrance; Shammi; Wide Valley March; Menedh Jumping Jack Flash; Ginger Wizard; Milly; Minky; Dinky By Design.

148: Total Eclipse; Springs; Plym Steps; Derwent Dream Dancer; Tarka, Aries; Roy Boy Green; Calypso; Goldwells Gucci; Frantic Fox; Hawksfield Flyer

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.
