Two runners today at Newcastle races, Jacarno runs in the 3.20 for The 100 Club.
Before that, Roberttown Rose makes her second racecourse appearance and a little bit of history in what is Newcastle Racecourse’s first ever Bumper on their Tapeta surface.
Good Luck to both horses and their connections.
Andy, Amy & Lord Franklin were on their travels again last night, this time to Kempton’s AW track. The horse finished a pleasing and staying on 6th to give his owners hope for his future prospects.
The official handicap ratings are published every Tuesday, these are yesterday’s.
Lord Franklin‘s third run since joining Andy was on the all weather course at Chelmsford City, the UK’s newsest racecourse. He was the yard’s first runner there and finished 4th. The racecourse got the thumbs up from his owners and from Andy and Amy.
Pity about the 462-mile round trip which made it a long day for connections.
Dudette makes her handicap debut today at Catterick. She’s the outsider of the five runners but the extra distance and the weights should help.
Members of The 100 Club gathered for Wetherby’s Boxing Day meeting to support Jacarno and Along Came Theo.
Jac was brought down in his race when a horse fell in front of him but thankfully he suffered no injury.
Theo gave them plenty to cheer as he looked to have his race won only to have the victory snatched from him close home by the champion jockey-ridden favourite.
Runners at two meetings on Boxing Day:
Members of The 100 Club will be out in force at Wetherby to support Along Came Theo in the 1.05 race and Jacarno in the 3.20.
Meanwhile Just Call Me Jenni makes her belated racecourse debut for owner Marg Hodgson in the Sedgefield Bumper.
Good Luck to all owners and safe home to all horses & jockeys.
Andy and his staff wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Like many in racing, the next week is likely to be a busy time for the yard with several horses entered at different meetings over two days.
The 100 Club horse, Along Came Theo has two entries this week and members will be keeping their fingers crossed that the current spell of winter weather doesn’t restrict his options.
