"Stable staff are the unsung heroes of our industry so we created our Best Turned Series, with the support of Millbry Hill, to recognise the invaluable contribution they make to the sport.” Amy Fair, Redcar Racecourse General Manager.

Raceday - Tuesday 17th September

It looked for a long time like there would be no movement on our Best Turned Out Series leader-board today, but then in our seventh and final race, Series leader Sarah Jones secured an incredible eighth win, extending her already impressive lead.

Sarah has now won eight rosettes in thirteen meetings, an average of two wins in every three meetings.

Sarah's won today with Miss Ranger, giving Roger Fell Racing their twelfth win in the Best Turned Out Series overall.

It was the first rosette for each of our other six winners today - a fantastic effort all round.

Many thanks again to Millbry Hill Country Store for supporting the series, and for their thoughtful judging together with our representatives from Market Cross Jewellers and Weatherbys Ltd.

 

Best Turned Out Series leader Sarah Jones wows our Millbry Hill Country Store judges once again, and picks up an unprecedented EIGHTH win with Miss Ranger for Roger Fell Racing.
Can anyone catch-up to the Woman with the Golden Comb? Five meetings remain this season for someone to close the gap.
Join us next week on Wednesday September 25 when our Best Turned Out Series will continue.

Our judges from Millbry Hill Country Store were delighted by Gaynor Crawford's hard work turning out for Jim Goldie Racing. Gaynor hand-stencilled individual letters to spell out Call Me Ginger's name as a quarter mark! Somehow, she also found the time for some very accomplished plaiting as well.
Well done Gaynor, it's lovely to see something so original!

Another excellent day of racing means another eight rosettes handed out in our Best Turned Out Series!

It was an especially good day for Tim Easterby Racing's Sam Pugh, who pulled off a double by turning out the best looking horses in both our first and fourth races, and picking up her first two wins in the Series. Julie Heneghan, from Philip Kirby Racing, picked up her third win, to pull ahead of the pack and secure herself in second place.  However, Sarah Jones once again proved why she has been leading the Series all year when she led up Miss Ranger for Roger Fell Racing and dazzled our judges. Sarah's win in our final race today puts her one seven points, well ahead of her closest rival - Julie, with three.

With seven racedays left in the year, who can threaten to catch up to Sarah?

We are once again grateful to Millbry Hill Country Store for supporting the Series.
