Return to racing

A DUMFRIESSHIRE horse trainer took part in the return of the sport behind closed doors.

Carrutherstown based Iain Jardine sent his horse Alix James to Newcastle as the sport resumed with a first meeting since March 17.

Alix James – ridden by jockey Paul Mulrennan – finished third on June 1. A second place finish followed last Saturday at Newcastle with 14/1 shot Glory Fighter – ridden by jockey Jamie Gormley – just being pipped at the post by Tabaahy.

Mr Jardine said: “As I’ve said all along, I was as eager as anyone to get going so long as it was safe to do so. “My horses are well and my team of staff have been raring to go.

“The recent dry weather has made it difficult to get work into the horses on the grass gallop but they’ve never missed a day on the all-weather during lockdown and that’s credit to my team.”
