SANDHURST LAD Wins At Wincanton
The panic of Equine Flu has subsided and racing is back on track. Thankfully we could get horses out this weekend and it was great to get the old stalwart SANDHURST LAD back into the winners’ enclosure. He took the 3m handicap chase at Wincanton on Saturday under Daryl Jacob. They made nearly all of the running at the Southern track until they were taken on two out by Fearsome Fred who subsequently fell leaving SANDHURST LAD in isolation from the field. Jumping is the name of the game and he has got better and better with every run over fences this year. He is a big and kind horse and it was great to see him get his head in front over the bigger obstacles. Congratulations to owners Nigel and Barbara Collison on their win with him.
