Howzat! Ollie Stammers and Ravenhoe win on Ollie’s very first ride of his career. A perfect ride from an almost impossible draw.
Granted, the other jockeys did give him an easy time in front – more fool them – but he took every advantage he was handed. He got the horse out well, aimed for the entrance to the bend as instructed, and eased him into the lead. He then, smoothly, edged over to the rail when clear and kept a cool head all the way to the line without any hint of getting tired or losing his balance.
Ollie has only recently joined us straight from school having spent last summer holidays with us. He works his socks off every afternoon on the equiciser after riding four lots, and fully deserves this success.
