FRIDAY ACTION AT THIRSK
Thirsk's seven-race programme on Friday (27 July) features The Lewis Geipel Challenge Cup Conditions Stakes, a race for two-year-olds over seven furlongs.
This race is held in memory of Lewis Geipel who was a respected owner and breeder of racehorses, based at nearby Coxwold. The Challenge Cup will be presented by 91-year-old Thomas Elder, who was the stud manager for the late Mr. Geipel. A former jockey over jumps, Mr. Elder rode in five Grand Nationals, the first one being in 1928, when he only got as far as the first fence, as his mount Wood Owl fell!
The Riseborough Maiden Fillies' Stakes, a contest over six furlongs for juvenile maiden fillies, is supported by The European Breeders Fund, while local owner, Joe Baggott, returns to Thirsk to support a contest for three-year-olds over one mile and a half, The Joe Baggott Enjoying Retirement Handicap Stakes.
The Adrian Tate Fillies' Handicap Stakes (six furlongs) is held in memory of a racing enthusiast, who passed away last October.
Racing at Thirsk is scheduled to start at 2.05 p.m.
JOHN PARROTT SUPPORTS RACING AT REDCAR
Former Snooker World Champion, John Parrott, will be at Redcar on Saturday (28 July) to support 'Discover Racing Day' at the course - one of six taking place across the U.K. as part of Discover Racing Month.
Discover Racing Month launches the £10 million three-year Discover Racing campaign to promote the attractions of horseracing . John Parrott, a keen racegoer, is looking forward to visiting Redcar, saying "With my love of horseracing I would do anything to let people know how much fun that they can have at the races. Discover Racing really is helping give people every opportunity to find out for themselves what a great day they can have. I have been at thousands of racedays in my time and I still get a buzz of excitement whenever I get to the racecourse. Not many people know how exciting a day can be whether it is at Ascot, Chester, Redcar or Hamilton, they are all great fun in their own way. I would be in heaven if you could put a snooker table on a racecourse."
It is hoped that John will join a special panel, including former trainer Micky Hammond and racing journalist, Tom O'Ryan, in previewing the day's racing prior to the first race in the winners' enclosure. (racing begins at 2.15 p.m.). He will present the prizes for the two Discover Racing races during the afternoon.
Bet Direct From Littlewoods return to Redcar to support a pair of races, including the feature race of the meeting, The Bet Direct From Littlewoods Handicap Stakes - a contest for three-year-olds over one mile and a quarter.
The Hertel Services Nursery Handicap Stakes, a race for two-year-olds over the straight seven furlongs, is sponsored for the fifth year by Hertel Services, providers of contract services to many companies both national and throughout the world. Hertel's local office is in Middlesbrough.
Musical entertainment is provided by Irish band, 'Green Hot Clover', while a selection of children's attractions will be located in the Course Enclosure, which also includes the popular playground. The racecard will be interleaved with the runners for the big meeting at Ascot, including the feature race, The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes.
LATEST NEW ZEALAND THOROUGHBRED NEWS
WATERHOUSE LOOKING TO ALTIERO FOR SIXTH AJC METROPOLITAN WIN
Leading Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse is sticking with a tried and proven formula as she chases her sixth win in Sydney's Gr I spring staying race, the Metropolitan (2400m) on the inside track at Royal Randwick on September 29.
All of Waterhouse's five Metropolitan winners have been New Zealand-bred horses and three of these were horses purchased by the stable from New Zealand as tried three-year-old fillies.
"Hula Flight, Electronic and Coco Cobanna all won the Metropolitan as spring four-year-old mares after we had bought them from New Zealand as tried three-year-olds," Waterhouse said.
This year Altiero is her big hope for the Metropolitan and she was also purchased from New Zealand interests during her three-year-old campaign after having previously being successful from the Kiwi stable of Robert Priscott.
Altiero, a daughter of New Zealand-based sire Kashani who stands at Highview Stud, made a big impression for Waterhouse at the Queensland winter carnival where she was placed third in the Group One Queensland Oaks and also finished an unlucky third in the Listed Rough Habit Plate.
"She really stepped up at the Queensland carnival and showed me that she was a horse with a big future as a stayer," Waterhouse said.
Another former New Zealand-trained three-year-old filly Waterhouse has classic ambitions with next season is Senorita Lucy, a daughter of Senor Pete who also stands at Highview Stud.
"She has settled in well at our stable after she came over from New Zealand and I really rate her a good chance of winning a few nice races next season as she goes through the grades," Waterhouse said.
Senorita Lucy was an impressive winner of The Blackwood Fasteners Handicap at her Sydney debut at Rosehill on June 24. Earlier this season she won twice in New Zealand for her previous owner-trainer Nigel Auret.
