Ed Mitchell enjoyed his first ride in public at Wolverhampton on Monday in the amateur riders handicap. As Fighting Poet was a bit slow out of the stalls, Ed sensibly let him warm up before making progress going down the far straight and challenging turning for home showing a great competitive spirit. A good first effort and we look forward to Ed gaining more experience in the future.
Hopefully we can find a race over a bit further for Poet although much depends on the style of the race and opposition when it comes to his competitiveness.
Pleased that co-owner Mark Pougatch was able to make it on his first visit to the track. Mark has presented many great sporting events in his broadcasting career, however he loves sport at all levels and expressed his delight at being able to attend for Ed’s first ride.
It’s great to be celebrating ‘Racing Staff Week’ and promote the great work done throughout the year for the love of the race. Check out our social media posts on Facebook and Instagram for interviews with members of our brilliant team during this week!
