Young John destroyed the opposition at Leicester in the Amateur riders' race on the 29th October. He chased the leaders from the start but once his jockey, Charlie Todd, pulled him out he scooted clear and the result was never in doubt.
Amateur Riders' races have jockeys with a wide range of abilities and we were pleased with the efforts of our jockey who was very professional. He works for Ian Williams and has experience in the Point to Point field and was worth his 5lb claim.
This was a real confidence booster for YJ who had been knocking on the door this year having been disappointing for us.
