ENGAGEMENT SURPRISE WAS A RACING CERTAINTY

Wednesday 12 September 2012

RACECOURSE accounts assistant Danielle Philpott was taken aback when the 4.30pm race at the track on Tuesday (11 SEPTEMBER) was named to mark her engagement.

The racecourse team and Danielle’s fiancé Jonny Rigg kept it a secret that her name would be in the official racecard and published in many newspapers and online.

 
The official title of the six-furlong race for the couple from Redcar was ‘Congratulations Danielle And Jonny Maiden Stakes’.
 
The race was won by the North Yorkshire-trained horse Albert Tatlock, named after the fictional Coronation Street and grumpy old man character.
 
Danielle and Jonny made the presentations after their race and received a framed copy of the racecard signed by all of the jockeys in their race.
