A great win for Sheelbewhatsheelbe

A great win for Sheelbewhatsheelbe at Towcester yesterday.  Given a fine Towcester ride by Danny Hiskett, she travelled and jumped well and moved onto the heels of the leaders turning for home, before jumping the last and showing her fighting spirit to defeat the favourite.

Delighted for owner Brian Duckett who has shown immense patience and fortitude with her.  Hopefully she can pick up another race before too long off her handicap mark.

Thanks to everyone who attended last night’s Adlestrop Club Question of Sport.  Once again a very popular and enjoyable evening and thanks to all those who attended, especially Mssrs Inverdale, Pougatch, Lysaght and McCoy.

This year we had an extra celeb team with lady Captain Sybil Ruscoe, who unfortunately had very little help from her team apart from husband Tom.  The winning celeb team was captained by Inverdale who led his team of McCoy, Andy Lloyd and Steven Smith to victory.

The team competition was won once again by Upthorpe racing headed by owner Jeremy Brown and Keith Gilbert who tied with the same points as the Inverdale team.

The latter would have been one point ahead if it were not for Steven Smith mishearing AP and writing down as the answer ‘Othello’ instead of the correct answer ‘The Fellow’.  As you can imagine, McCoy was not amused.
