The Eventmasters team enjoyed a fantastic day of National Hunt Racing and corporate hospitality with our sponsored raceday at one of the country’s finest venues, Doncaster Racecourse.
Ahead of the racing Eventmasters and our invited guests enjoyed a fabulous three-course lunch from inside the Portland Suite – which provided stunning panoramic views of the action on the Town Moor course.
The opening race of the day was the Eventmasters Handicap Chase (Qualifier For The Northern Lights Staying Chase Series) which was won by Beggars Cross, in the famous colours of Trevor Hemmings.
Might Bite Strengthens Cheltenham Claims With Smooth Success
On what has traditionally been a strong card for Cheltenham Festival pointers, Might Bite enhanced his claims for the RSA Chase on Cheltenham Festival Ladies Day with a bloodless victory in the 3:00 sponsored by our sister company, The Soar Enterprises Online Ltd Novices’ Chase.
Trained by Nicky Henderson, the long odds-on favourite was on something of a recovery mission after falling at the final fence in the Kauto Star Novices’ Chase at Kempton. But under Nico De Boinville, the eight-year-old made short work of his two rivals with a 99-length victory.
There was more cause for celebration as Eventmasters Director Elliot Sheasby celebrated his birthday with the Happy Birthday Elliot Sheasby Handicap Hurdle (Qual. For Challenger Staying Hurdle Series Final) which was won in fine style by Three Ways for trainer Jamie Snowden.
In a strongly run race Three Ways and Abbreviate pulled well clear after the final hurdle and real ding-dong battle on the run-in, but it was the six-year-old Three Ways who got the better of his rival in a thrilling contest.
In the final race of the day the colours of Eventmasters Racing were carried by Gambol, who was looking to build on his promising run at Wolverhampton in the Eventmasters Hospitality Conditional Jockeys’ Handicap Hurdle.
Unfortunately for connections the seven-year-old wasn’t able to pick off his rivals from the back of the pack in very testing conditions. The
eventual winner was Episode, trained by Philip Kirby, who just edged out Fifty Bob to win by a neck.
Another fabulous day and we are already counting down the days until next year!
