PRIDE OF JAMES
Owner: Mr S M Shefras, Trainer:
Mr Stuart Shefras, Jockey: Mr S A Walker.
Winner of the PENN WOOD CHALLENGE (Series Qualifier) Handicap
Stakes, sponsored by the winning owner, trainer Mr S Shefras.
Pride Of James was always in command and the seven year old
grey gelding, previously 4th to L'Escalou at Newbury on Dubai
Day, made no mistake here, under Champion Arabian Jockey, Simon
Walker, to win with ease
Owner: Mr P D Rondel, Trainer: Mr P D Rondel,
Jockey: Miss Aimee Hockley.
An exciting finish with MAKHAI just edging out the Mrs Jackie
Hutchings owned and trained MAGHRIBA to win the Town &
Country Novice Riders Classified Stakes, by half a length.
Well ridden by Aimee Hockley, MAKHAI had shown glimpses of
improvement in his previous outings and this five year old
grey gelding by Khairouan (Fr), bred by H H SHeik Ahmed Bin
Rashid Al Maktoum, looks to be on the upgrade.
Owner: Mrs C Cone, Trainer: Mr P J Murphy,
Jockey: Mr P J Murphy.
some disappointing performances Sarrafina came good in style
to win the Jebel Ali Racing Cklub Qualifier. A competitive
field ensured the race was run at a good pace and SARRAFINA
won gamely, beating Mrs Jackie Hutchings MELLWAY GOLD CHARM
by the shortest of margins. Bred by Mrs C Cone and another
winner on the day for Khairouan (Fr)
UTTOXETER NEWS IN BRIEF:
Report Jim & Chris Bielby
* Mrs Jackie Hutchings had a rewarding, if rather a disappointing
day, with two runners being beaten into second place, AGHRIBA
in the Town & Country Novice Riders at 3.30 and MELLWAY
GOLD CHARM in the Jebel Ali Racing Club Series Qualifier
* Aimee Hockley, the winning rider on MAKHAI now joins Deb Crothers,
Brett Norris and Kelly Turbutt (who gained a further 8 points
to add to her previous 4 points when finishing second on MELLWAY
GOLD CHARM) on 12 points in the Town & Country
Farms Novice Riders Series, the winner of which at the end of
the season will receive a month's working holiday, including
flight to Town & Country Farms in Florida.
* Mrs G M Duffield strengthened her position at the head of
the Trainers table by landing a double with KAMMARYAH
in the 2.00 and LASKEM in the 4.30.
* The Mrs H L Bona trained, HAYLEY'S COMET,
who had run at Newbury on Dubai Day, found the opposition at
Uttoxeter more to his liking and won the concluding race ridden
by Mr S Harrison at 5.00, whilst the Brunton band wagon continued
on it's merry way by taking the third race, sponsored by themselves
- The Clarendon Stud Classified Stakes - with CS PATRIARCH,
a fast improving four year old who has won two of his last four
starts and looks the type to continue improving.
