It was a fantastic day yesterday as we matched the British record for most flat winners in a year. Richard Hannon Snr sent out 235 winners in 2013 and thanks to a Lingfield double through Gabrial The Hero and Luis Vaz De Torres we have equaled that number.
It was also an important day for jockey Tony Hamilton, he rode his 100th winner on Gabrial The Hero. It’s the first time Tony has reached the landmark and over 80 of those winners have been for us, a fantastic achievement. We send out a few runners of the next few days and we are keeping our fingers crossed we can break the record. We have been overwhelmed with the tweets and phone calls congratulating us and we must say thank you to all of our owners. A bigger thank you though must be given to our fantastic staff. They work incredibly hard and there is no doubt we wouldn’t have had such an amazing season without them.
