Olympic cycling champ Pendleton unseated on National Hunt jump jockey debut
Yahoo News - about 1 year
Britain's Victoria Pendleton was unseated from odds-on favourite Pacha Du Polder at Fakenham, eastern England, on Friday in the former cycling star's debut as a National Hunt jump jockey. The double Olympic track-cycling gold medallist was unhurt on Pacha Du Polder, saddled by leading English jumps trainer Paul Nicholls in the Switching Saddles "Grassroots" Fox Hunters' Chase for amateur riders. Pendleton fell off after the seventh fence when Baltic Blue, who was a length in front of Pacha Du Polder, came down just in front of her mount.

CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL REVIEW: vintage week linked Coneygree and Willie Mullins with magical memories of Dawn Run
Dispatch - almost 2 years
One of the most endearing assets of the Cheltenham Festival is that, as the years roll on, its feats and fables create a veritable treasure-trove of memories. Festival veterans will tell you that one of the most unforgettable days was Thursday 13th March 1986. Yes, it was the day ‘The Sun’ ran its most famous front-page headline, ‘Freddie Starr Ate My Hamster’. But the back pages were adorned by the mercurial mare Dawn Run, who became the first, and remains the only, horse to land the Gold Cup/Champion Hurdle double. Even racing enthusiasts who weren’t there that day cannot fail to have been enchanted at some point in their lives by the sound, from the TV commentary vaults, of Peter O’Sullevan screaming: “And the mare’s gonna get up!.....” Consequently, few at the 2015 Festival last week can be excused for recalling Dawn Run’s glory day 39 years ago. For in CONEYGREE, wonderful winner of the Betfred Gold Cup, we had a horse of similarly limited fencing experience and boasting simil ...

Horses For Courses: Ascription team looking to cause a splash in Lincoln
Yorkshire Evening Post - about 3 years
Hugo Palmer’s talented miler Ascription is likely to kick off his campaign in the £100,000 William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster on March 29. The five-year-old won over the course and distance on his penultimate start, one of three career victories for a horse who prefers easier underfoot conditions. William Hill make Palmer’s charge the 14-1 joint second-favourite for the traditional Flat season curtain-raiser and the trainer is hoping the wet weather that is currently lashing the country continues for a while yet. Palmer said: “It’s well documented that he prefers cut in the ground and following the wettest winter in living memory, you’d like to think there is a good chance he’ll get that at Doncaster in seven weeks’ time. “He is very well in himself. I couldn’t be happier with him at the moment and provided all goes well, the Lincoln will probably be his first run of the year. “He wouldn’t be ready before then, so he’d go straight there and with a rating of 109 he’ll probably have ...

Horses For Courses: Halfsin is capable of adding to Botti’s tally
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 3 years
Marco Botti is sending out a steady stream of winners so on a tricky card at Wolverhampton it may be best to play safe with Halfsin in the Coral Mobile “Just Three Clicks To Bet” Handicap. While at first glance he may not look like a winner-in-waiting after a slightly disappointing run at Newmarket back in August, on the form of his penultimate start he should take a great deal of beating. The lay-off means there is a slight concern that he may be too fresh and he is certainly not totally straightforward having failed to exit the stalls at Kempton in June, but there has been no sign of him repeating those antics in two runs since. He was beaten only a length and a quarter by Classic Punch at Doncaster in July and, for a horse who was once rated 98, his falling mark of 84 makes him look incredibly well treated – if he consents to put his best foot forward. Botti also runs newcomer in Spirit Or Soul in the 32Red.com Maiden Auction Stakes. Bred by the Niarchos family, he failed to sel ...

Horses For Courses: Wetherby holds new Silver lining
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Neither is his name easy to say, or easy to spell for that matter. But now we’re all familiar with Silviniaco Conti – a facile winner of this year’s Charlie Hall Chase as part of a cracking card at Wetherby. Not that the Paul Nicholls-chaser was the only horse to leave a lasting impression with Lordofthehouse another name to note, just so long as he decides to get going! To Lordofthehouse in a second but Silviniaco Conti undoubtedly deserves top billing for landing us a nice winner with the minimum of fuss. The word before hand was that the Ditcheat-based six-year-old had improved leaps and bounds over the summer and an 11-length victory in Saturday’s Grade Two race is proof of the pudding. It’s a bit soon to be calling Silviniaco Conti the next Kauto Star or Denman but there is no denying that the animal has a sizeable engine. Ruby Walsh also knows what he is talking about and it was interesting to see the Irish ace stress that his winning mount has “the potential to go to the n ...

Horse racing: Portrait King has Scot what it takes at Ayr
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 5 years
LOVE ’em or loath ’em, it seems the Red Devils are going to win another title for Sir Alex Ferguson and the 70-year-old could also bag the Scottish Grand National tomorrow (3.25pm Ayr). His Harry The Viking is the current 6-1 favourite but we’re taking him on with Irish raider Portrait King who looks good value at 8s. There are eight days left in the current Racing Post naps comp and from here on in we are going to seek some better-priced animals as evens shots won’t get us near the top three. So hopefully Portrait King can kick-start a decent week. There’s no way we are deserting him following his fine win in the Eider Chase at Newcastle last time. A big fancy for our Horses For Courses column that day, the striking thing with Portrait King’s performance was how well he travelled – like a very decent and well-handicapped horse. He then looked like getting beat by Posh Bird who collared him jumping the last but Portrait King was obviously idling in front as he rallied strongly to ...

Horse racing: Bob predicting Champion times
Yorkshire Evening Post - almost 5 years
DARYL JACOB and Paul Nicholls are this morning’s national heroes – still reflecting on Saturday’s famous Aintree Triumph. But Yorkshireman Bob Champion still remembers his 1981 success like it was yesterday with the 63-year-old predicting equally exciting times for the county’s new star James Reveley. Champion has been busy promoting the John Smith’s Aintree Legends race of late – a contest run as a prelude to Saturday’s showpiece – and the return to the Liverpool track will have been an emotional one for the former jockey. It was at the Merseyside racecourse where Champion enjoyed his career high – winning the 1981 Grand National on Aldanati – a story that warmed the heart of the nation with the jockey having been diagnosed with testicular cancer less than two years before. Champion made a stunning recovery – capped off by his Aintree triumph – but the Guisborough-born ace has not forgotten his ordeal and now dedicates his time to saving the lives of others through his work for th ...

Another Year Of Horse Deaths At Race
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
AINTREE, England (AP) — The Grand National steeplechase was marred for the second year in a row with the death of two horses Saturday, including the pre-race favorite Synchronised. Synchronised went down at the sixth fence of the 4½-mile, 30-fence race considered one of the world's most prestigious jumping races. According to Pete went down at the same fence, but later in the race. The start was delayed when Synchronised unseated jockey Tony McCoy, but race organizers said the horse was "thoroughly checked" by a veterinarian and allowed to line up in the 40-horse field. Neptune Collonges, a 33-1 long shot, won in the closest finish in the history of the race, which drew a crowd of 70,441. "In both cases the horse incurred a fracture to the leg and the humane option was to put the injured horses down," said Tim Morris of the British Horseracing Authority. "The Grand National undoubtedly represents a challenge to ...
