THE RETRIEVER 100/30 WINNER!!!!!!!

'All things come to those who wait.'The Retriever finally got off the mark at the 20th attempt at Southwell, when winning the 12.05.pm.From what looked an unpromising draw of 12, his jockey Jack Garritty brought him across to a prominent position, taking up the running three out, and going clear to win by two and a quarter lengths.


The Retriever has often been in a challenging position in previous races, but has been run out of it when push comes to shove, but he appeared to stay on resolutely this time. The race was a seller, but his competitors were of a similar level to what he normally takes on. One advantage he does have at this level is that he tends to be more consistent than other horses who run in this grade, and today his will to win, and consistency paid off. Incidentally the first three home all had the worst of the draw, in 12.13, and 14, and there was no bid for the winner.


On the website now is a list of all the current 87 horses in training, and in depth look at tomorrow's Fighting Fifth Hurdle.
