Rio Gold Racing Club Half Term Report

We are now halfway through the Summer and it could be said that the results of the RGRC horses have taken the summer jumping scene by storm!

Rio Gold Racing Club’s first winner I’ll Be Your Clown with delighted owners in the winners’ enclosure

Going to back to our first few runners at the beginning of April, it was the wonderful I’ll Be Your Clown who got us off the mark at the very first time of asking at our local Stratford racecourse. The winners then started to flow with Gibson Park, Sierra Oscar & Honkytonktennessee all winning on debut over the next couple of weeks, including a double for the Club at Huntingdon which formed part of a magic four-timer on the day. Honkytonk then followed up his chase win with a win over hurdles at Stratford seven days later, and it wasn’t long before Mister Showman was getting on the scoresheet on his hurdling debut at Towcester.

May flew by with more victories from Ravens Hill, I’ll Be Your Clown & Petrou, who is now on a four-timer since his debut for the yard at Stratford. It was early in the month that the Club sadly lost the promising Protest in a fall at Exeter, which was bitter blow for the owners who had enjoyed such a wonderful start to the Summer. June started with an agonising defeat for Coroberee at Fakenham and placed efforts from Clown & Honkytonk at Southwell and Sierra Oscar at Uttoxeter.

With more wins from Petrou, Ravens Hill and Defining Year in the last few weeks, the Club now sit on the 16 winner mark since kicking off on April 1st, with the horses operating at an incredible strike rate of 39%.

Sadly we have come to the end of the line for three of our horses, with Coroberee, Sierra Oscar & I’ll Be Your Clown shortly off to pastures new, but we have welcomed a new recruit to the Club in the shape of Premier Rose, an 8yo mare by Westerner.

Dan & the team are delighted with how the Summer has gone for the Club so far and we are now looking forward to putting together a new string for Rio Gold Racing 2018.
