LANGHOLM jockey Jamie Gormley rode one of two winners for Iain Jardine at Musselburgh last Tuesday.
The double success ended the flat season on a satisfying note for the Carrutherstown trainer.
Gormley was on board the 2/1 favourite Smart Lass in the one-mile, five-furlong handicap.
The four-year-old lined up against 13 other runners and won by seven lengths.
She took a keen hold early in the race and joined the leading horse at the halfway stage.
Gormley was in the lead over four furlongs out and drew clear three furlongs out. The horse drifted left but kept on well and was unchallenged when she passed the post.
Jardine said that Gormley’s win for owner Gerry McGladery meant he was crowned champion flat owner this season.
The trainer congratulated both his home and away teams.
Jardine’s other win came courtesy of Alix James, ridden by Paul Mulrennan in the seven-furlong novice stakes.
The 11/10 favourite came in seven lengths clear in the seven-strong field.
Also at Musselburgh Gormley rode Jardine’s Colour Contrast into fourth place in a seven-furlong handicap. He came in four lengths adrift of the winner.
The horse had every chance briefly over one furlong out but had no extra inside the final furlong.
Gormley lined up in the one-mile handicap on Donnelly’s Rainbow for Rebecca Bastiman and came fifth of the 12 runners, four and three-quarter lengths behind.
At Catterick last Saturday Gormley came a close second on the two-year-old Magical Effect in the six-furlong handicap.
Riding for Ruth Carr, he was making progress two furlongs from home and moved into second place inside the final furlong but never posed a threat to the winner and came in two and a quarter lengths behind.
Riding Ishebayorgrey for Jardine, he came fourth in the seven-furlong handicap at Newcastle last Friday.
Fourteen horses set off and Gormley moved the horse up over one furlong out but could not quicken the pace in the final furlong.
He was back at Newcastle two days ago but was out of luck, riding Tommy G into 12th place for Jim Goldie in the six-furlong handicap.
He made the trip down to Wolverhampton last Thursday to ride Picks Pinta for John David Riches in the seven-furlong classified stakes but came only 10th of the 12 runners.
