The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

AN­DREW Thorn­ton is hop­ing it will be se­cond time lucky when he rides in the leg­ends race at Chepstow next Satur­day in aid of the Bob Cham­pion Can­cer Trust.

Thorn­ton, who re­tired ear­lier this year af­ter rid­ing more than 1,000 win­ners, fin­ished se­cond on De­tach­ment in the Leger Leg­ends race at Don­caster last month. Re­ports that he is to be­come a jock­eys’ agent are wide of the mark. He plans to con­tinue his me­dia work for ITV, Wil­liam Hill TV and ATR while also help­ing his wife Yvonne with her flour­ish­ing flower busi­ness.
