Last weekend saw some fantastic racing at the Town Moor track, with over 250 runners and riders competing during The Racing Post Trophy meeting on Friday and Saturday.
We saw some decent racing action and a number of potential future stars were unveiled.
Gregorian, trained by John Gosden was successful in Friday’s opening race, the 7f Maiden. Mahmood Al Zarooni looks to have a nice sort in Lacily who won the first division of the fillies maiden by 11/4 lengths. Bookmakers have given her a quote of 33-1 for next year’s 1,000 Guineas.
It was a good afternoon for William Buick who doubled his tally aboard the Marco Botti trained Bohemian Melody after winning the 22 runner 6f handicap stakes.
Saturday’s highlight for the packed crowds was the brilliant victory by Camelot in the Group 1 Racing Post Trophy.
At Town Moor preparations continue apace for both of our November Handicap meetings – The Betfred November Handicap Flat Meeting, our last Flat meeting of the season on November 5, and a brand new Friday National Hunt fixture on November 25, marking the start of the much anticipated jumps season.
The team here have worked extremely hard all year to produce some fantastic ground throughout the summer, particularly during the St Leger festival, and now have both courses in full swing for the coming weeks.
Off the track we’re gearing up for some spine-tingling family fun as the popular Spook-tacular Halloween event makes a welcome return this Saturday evening.
Revellers will enjoy family entertainment and live music from some X-Factor favourites, including last year’s finalist Paije Richardson, at what promises to be a great evening out for all of the family.
