Ladyford Indiana wins the Little Welsh Dragoness Final for Bob Lees
The Racing Horse was thrilled to attend Day Two of the Tregaron August Festival 2013 and what a day it was! There was so much to take from the day it is hard to know where to start but the most endearing moment must be Bob Lees winning the Little Welsh Dragoness Final for three-year old fillies. Ladyford Indiana was expertly driven by Shane Lee scooping the £2,500 prize and confirmed her 'Heat 2' superiority over Runaway Girl driven by Marc Jones, when winning by half a length in a time of 2mins 8.7secs.
Tears of delight...
Bob Lees could not hide his tears of delight, amongst other things he told the racing public: I feel 7ft 2in tall, I am so proud of her. We have her mother at home and if she grows like her she could be anything when she is five years-old. She is the best horse I have ever trained and I have had some good ones!"
Stamp Hill makes his mark
In the next race and the Little Wesh Dragon for three year-olds (male equivalent), William Laidler never saw a rival when he drove Stamp Hill to victory in a very fast time of 2mins 2.6secs to collect £3,600. Second-place went to Ayr Majesty and Andrew Cairns and they banked a cool £1,200.
Infinatey sees off Meadowbranch DJ to land the Oriel Welsh Classic Final at Tregaron
The top prize for the day was in the valuable £10,200 Oriel Welsh Classic Final which was won in exciting circumstances by Infinatey driven by Michael Lord who was drawn two off 10 yards. He managed to hold on from Meadowbranch DJ and John Richardson who had to come from last place to make a challenge and could be considered an unlucky loser. Interesting to see the time a little slower than the Little Welsh Dragon race clocking 2mins 3.9 seconds.
The Racing Horse and his wife had a fantastic day and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Tregaron Trotting Club for their hospitality...
We have posted a couple of photos:
