Welsh jock­eys con­tinue on a hot streak

Llanelli Star - - RUGBY & RACING -

THE re­cent spell of hot weather cer­tainly hasn’t stopped the win­ning streak of Welsh jock­eys.

Ffos Las ambassador Sean Bowen has been en­joy­ing an­other good spell of suc­cess as he rode a win­ner on board Mariners Moon on Tues­day for trainer Caro­line Bai­ley.

He is cur­rently sev­enth in the jock­eys’ cham­pi­onship ti­tle.

An­other Pem­brokeshire jockey who notched up suc­cess in South­well was Richard Patrick, who won aboard Si­nakar for his boss Kerry Lee to take the con­di­tional jock­eys’ hand­i­cap hur­dle, beat­ing Theatre Act from the Dan Skel­ton yard by a cou­ple of lengths.

Tim Vaughan made the long trip to Cart­mel last Mon­day a win­ning one with Cham­pagne Chaser and Can­ton Prince both suc­cess­ful in the hands of cham­pion jockey Richard John­son.

Also on the mark at the Cum­bria track were James and Peter Bowen, who struck with Dr Robin, who was win­ning for the third time in a row this sea­son.

On the flat, Chep­stow-based trainer David Evans en­joyed suc­cess at his lo­cal track on Fri­day evening where Amor Fati took the first race of the evening, pro­vid­ing jockey Rossa Ryan with the first leg of a dou­ble on the evening.

Ryan’s other win­ner was Malvern for trainer Richard Han­non. He was mak­ing his race­course de­but and looks a nice prospect for the fu­ture.

The next meet­ing at Ffos Las is to­mor­row (Thurs­day), which is a Gin & Jazz evening. Tick­ets are £12 in ad­vance and there is a fan­tas­tic of­fer of an ad­mis­sion pack­age for just £24 which in­cludes your en­try, a gin & tonic, a pot of strawberri­es and whipped cream and a race­day pro­gramme.

On Au­gust 13 there is a Pic­nic Race­day where you can bring a pic­nic to the race­course and en­joy an af­ter­noon of flat rac­ing.

And don’t for­get our fea­ture meet­ing of the year, which is the Heat­force Ladies’ Day on Fri­day, Au­gust 23, where the pop­u­lar ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again play af­ter the last race.

Tick­ets for this are a fan­tas­tic £22 in ad­vance.
