Ladies’ Day on Castleholm



By Brenda Brough

LANGHOLM Horse Racing Association held their ‘Ladies Day’ meeting at the Castleholm on Sunday.

The weather was in their favour once more, and stayed dry, which brought out a good crowd to support them.

There were some fun things for the children after the racing with bubble wands and chocolate given out, and two cycle races.

The first was between two young brothers, Flynn and Grayson Rose, and the second was well fought out between the older boys, with Codey Forster winning, quickly followed by Danny Hotson, Jayk Foster and Cody Parker.

Being Ladies Day there was a prize for the best dressed lady, which included a voucher kindly donated by Chloe at La Belle and was won by Kay Johnston.

There were not as many horses attending as anticipated, but those that did put on an exciting day’s racing, and were treated to a track in peak condition.

Race one was the seven furlongs for the Ethel Johnstone trophy with a very close finish.

First place went to Seven Up ridden by Archie Young, second to Beautiful Sunday ridden by Corey Madden, and third to Titan ridden by Dominic Hislop.

Race two was one mile three furlongs for the J&B Racing cup.

First place went to Cypriot Prince ridden by Alasdair Clark, second to Who Knows ridden by Archie Young, and third to Tap on the Bar ridden by Corey Madden.

Race three was the six furlongs for the Jock Ewart Memorial Trophy

First place went to Caster ridden by Archie Young, with second place to Jack the Lad ridden by Corey Madden.

Race four was the one mile one furlong for the Archie Scott trophy.

First place went to Magic Moments ridden by Alasdair Clark, second to Alfie Bow ridden by Archie Young, and third to Cash It In ridden by Corey Madden.

The best turned out in each race received a voucher, kindly donated by Eskdale Saddlery Longtown.

The day ended with good craic, music and refreshments from the Horse Shoe Gin Bar.

The committee thanked everyone who helped and supported the day in any way.

It has been a difficult time, but so nice to see people once again enjoying the ‘flapping’ days.

The next flapping will be in Hawick on 11 September as pat of Hawick Horse Racing.
