WARWICK 30TH JUNE 2002
OWNER/TRAINERS ENJOY SUCCESS AT WARWICK
jockeys and sets of connections enjoyed success as the Arab Horse
Society continues to provide competitive racing for its members.
Four of the seven races at Warwick were won by AHS members training
their own horses, while there were family connections in two of
the remaining races.
of the two Anglo/Part Bred races saw a return to the winners enclosure
for Shasta Bree Tarkan ridden by Pierre Deymonaz for owner/trainer
Linda Meakins, beating previous winners Sugar Dandy and Field
of Dreams. While in the Open race Rushing was always running well
under Phil Collington to win for owner/trainer Jennie Candlish.
The Open Maiden
race for the Pure Breds, kindly sponsored by Mr Michael Hinchliffe
of M J Hinchliffe Racehorse Transport, saw a surprise winner in
Floral Dancer who was making her racecourse debut for owner Jenny
Collins. The favourites went off at a very fast pace allowing
jockey Brian Boulton to settle his mount in behind and come with
a sprint finish at the end as the others had run themselves out
of the race.
and Sally McIlwaine confirmed their Barbury result by winning
again in the 2 mile race cruising home ahead of Island Star. Owner/trainer
Andy and Barbara Coombs said they tried to use a larger trailer
to make the journey up from Trowbridge but Omar would only load
up in his usual mode of transport.
a close finish in the Penn Wood Challenge Open Stakes as Cathy
Thomas on her Pavot Al Kyle took up the running at half way and
was strongly challenged in the finish by Benedikt and Fayre Abi
but managed to hold on by half a length to win this leg of the
Series sponsored by Stuart Shefras.
in the family were Patrick Murphy and Mark Doyle each winning
for their respective Mother-in-law. The progressive 4-year-old
Olivphaya, bred and owned by Christine Cone, was given a race
to the line by Ares De Chevagne although Patrick managed to prevail
by half a length in the Coventry Stakes. While in the final race
teenagers took three of the four places as 14-year-old Gaynif
came with a late run under Mark Doyle to finish 5 lengths clear
of 13-year-old Doriket ridden by Rob Woollard. Third was 10-year-old
Pha Khamoun, with 19-year-old Al Jabal in fourth.
