Get An Os­car earns Bowens an­other win

Llanelli Star - - SPORT -

THE Na­tional Hunt sea­son is hav­ing a short break, with no meet­ings tak­ing place be­tween Au­gust 4 and 14.

How­ever, be­fore the break started Peter Bowen scored with Get An Os­car at Mar­ket Rasen, rid­den by his youngest son James.

The horse had been placed in his last five out­ings and de­served to get his head in front.

Get An Os­car is still only five and one can imag­ine him run­ning plenty of big­ger races in the future.

On the flat, David Evans’s Scof­flaw com­pleted a hat-trick at Ch­ester last Sun­day.

Richard Fa­hey had trained him un­til Novem­ber, when he won for the fifth time.

Those were all over six and seven fur­longs, but once he joined Evans he was tried at a mile, which has shown his true stamina.

He won by a nose at Wolver­hamp­ton at the end of May, and af­ter a seven-week gap took ad­van­tage of a lower rat­ing on turf to win at Hay­dock at, with hind­sight, re­mark­ably gen­er­ous odds of 16-1.

The hand­i­cap­per didn’t raise him too much and his Ch­ester vic­tory was an easy one, this time over a mile and a quar­ter.

Ffos Las now turns its at­ten­tion to the big­gest race meet­ing of the year, the Heat­force Ladies’ Day on Fri­day, Au­gust 23.

Along­side seven com­pet­i­tive jump races there will be the pop­u­lar ABBA trib­ute band Bjorn Again play­ing af­ter the last race.

The prizes are big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore for the ‘best dressed’ cat­e­gories in­clud­ing £500 worth of vouch­ers for Slaters Menswear, £1,000 cash prize for the best dressed lady and a fan­tas­tic prize for best hat in­clud­ing a Pan­dora bracelet, fur cape and trilby and £400 worth of vouch­ers for a be­spoke made head piece, kindly do­nated by Vic­to­ria’s Hats.

There are very limited hos­pi­tal­ity op­tions left, and gen­eral ad­mis­sion tick­ets are just £22 in ad­vance.
