San Brown looks a contender

San Brown looks a very interesting contender in the Scotch Corner Designer Village Novices’ Hurdle at Wincanton today as the racecourse hosts its momentous 150 Years of Racing Celebration meeting.

It always takes a useful type to win two bumpers but that is what Anthony Honeyball’s five-year-old managed last season.

Under a penalty he beat a French import of Nicky Hen- derson’s and had the smart mare Dame Rose well behind him.
The race-day maintains it’s charitable association and this year it is in support of Key4Life with a special fund- raising event on what is also their fifth birthday.

The gates open 10.30 am with the first race of the day getting underway at 1.00 pm. Tickets are available on the gate and children aged 17 and under can enter for free.

A complimentary bus service is running from Templecombe railway station to the racecourse and will meet the train arriving from Exeter at 11.46 am.
