|Jimmy does it again - our 9YO Chaser with Tommy Gretton wins his sixth race for his shareholders|
|DATE POSTED: 03/03/2016|
There were scenes of
joy at Bangor-on-Dee yesterday afternoon, as Little Jimmy, our big,
statuesque chaser with Tommy Gretton pulled out a top-notch
performance to win his fourth race in only six runs...
There is something magical when a horse you own wins at the races, but yesterday at Bangor was barely believable, as Little Jimmy, our 9YO gelding with trainer Tommy Gretton, won for the second time this season in the feature race of the day.
Little Jimmy (Brian Hughes in the saddle) being led in by trainer Tommy Gretton to a resounding reception.
Little Jimmy jumped superbly well, and ranged up with two to jump going exceptionally well - and jockey Brian Hughes only had to give the 9YO a slap down his length and he quickened away from his rivals after the last fence.
Jimmy is one of four horses we have in training with Tommy Gretton at the moment, and his shareholders have enjoyed plenty of success with him - he has now won four of his last six starts! This latest race was a £10,000 added Class 4 Chase - and every one of his 60 shareholders will be sharing in the prizemoney.
other big bonus was his starting price! Little Jimmy was
allowed to go off at 25/1 - so not only did he win the best
prize of his career, he also managed to line the pockets of his
owners quite significantly!
