Former jockey of Lisathedaddy and Lisa’s Legacy, horses owned by Trish and Clive named after Lisa won the Epsom Derby riding Desert Crown on Saturday June 8th.Richard won this very special event celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee and the late Lester Piggott in grand style winning comfortably. Riding for Sir Michael Stoute he rode a great race and victory was never in question once he hit the front. Richard rode 17 times for Clive and Trish on both Lisathedaddy and Lisa’s Legacy with 4 wins and several places between them. Always a shy and polite jockey this win has catapaulted him into the forefront of the racing world. Richard is married with two young boys. The following day he rode two winners at Goodwood and Trish and Clive were there to see him and congratulate his amazing weekend. We wish him every success in the future.
The New Forest Marathon took place on Sunday 10th September. The event was a huge success with over 5000 runners competing in the various events, from a family walk to a full marathon. Although the weather broke during the day, it did not have any effect on the vast majority of the runners. Various sponsors and runners on behalf of The Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund raised over £2500 for Lisa’s charity. Some of the known runners were friends of SES Autoparts: Shaun Monaghan, Tom Kidd, and Christian Rivron. Also, Kubler Racing – who train ‘Socrates’ for Clive and Trish – entered 2 teams that performed really well, with the girls winning the 5k trophy and Daniel Zurynek winning the Mens’ 5k.
Thank you all for your wonderful support!
On Saturday 11th July, Salisbury Racecourse saw Who’sthedaddy romp home to win over a mile and a quarter, winning his first race as a three year old. Over 20 friends attended the evening meeting which had been auctioned for the ‘Friends of Evelyn Rose’ appeal.
Jockey Timmy Murphy was a late change and his experience did the trick with a textbook ride.
Who’sthedaddy is the second colt foaled by Lisathedaddy whose name was taken from Lisa’s e-mail address.
Who’sthedaddy ran a great race, coming in second in his first handicap race at Bath on 13th May. Backed in from 28-1 to 16-1, it was a fabulous run for his first time out this season. Much Champagne was enjoyed by all.
Hopefully with more success to come, we now look forward to to Leicester on the 26th, upping the trip to a mile and a quarter.
