Wednesday’s News & Winner!

Zig Zag streaking home to give Tommy a memorable win as he rides out his 3lb claim

Well done Tommy, Kate & Gary and not forgetting ZIG ZAG 👏👏👏. 

Its been a thoroughly wet night over at Cartmel but our two runners did us proud with a win and a second to add to Shine Baby Shine’s excellent 2nd last night at Ayr & December Seconds impressive win at Huntingdon… they are running well and our team at home work hard to keep the horses happy and the winners flowing. … long may it continue 🐎

Tommy won’t remember Cartmel tonight for the rain, it will be all about the milestone win – he rode out his 3lb claim in fine style under a confident ride on Zig Zag, sitting ready to pounce in 3rd and taking up the running on the final circuit with Zig Zag clearly travelling strongly. Ironically we weren’t sure if he would handle the ground once it really softened up, always having in the back of our minds that he needed a sounder surface but he bucked that trend in no uncertain fashion and with his Owners Kate & Gary Capstick living locally, it’s likely we will see Zig Zag back here when the right race presents itself. This was an exciting local win for them.

We also saw an excellent effort from the tough and game ‘Richard Strauss’ to finish second in the preceeding race – add this to the close 2nd from Shine Baby Shine last night at Ayr and it’s a good job Zig Zag won, not sure Phil could have handled 3 seconds on the trot!

Richard Strauss, 2nd tonight
