Winningseverything showed his Cheltenham Festival credentials under champion jump jockey Richard Johnson at Market Rasen Racecourse’s penultimate meeting of 2019.
The Harry Fry-trained five-year-old, who began his career with victory in a National Flat Race at the Lincolnshire track 13 months ago, remains undefeated over hurdles and is quoted by bookmakers for the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham next March.
The winner was a very short price at 1-4, one of five favourites to be victorious during the afternoon when all seven races were sponsored by MansionBet.
The 15-8 fancy Little Rory Mac, with Nathan Brennan in the saddle, landed the handicap hurdle for conditional jockeys; one of the joint favourites, 3-1 fancy Dallas Cowboy, won the two mile three furlong handicap chase; Timely Gift travelled from Wales to take the two mile seven furlong handicap hurdle at 7-4; while the concluding bumper went to the trainer-jockey sibling team of Dan and Harry Shelton with 13-8 shot Third Time Lucki.
The only winners who weren’t favourites were trainer Alan King’s Lord Lamington, who was sent off at 11-2, in the opening juvenile hurdle and 7-1 chance Zara Hope in the three-mile handicap chase.
The racecourse is now getting into festive mood for one its most popular jump racing occasions of the year, the Rand Farm Park Boxing Day At The Races meeting. Boxing Day racing is Lincolnshire’s ‘Big Christmas Day Out’ and always a great chance for families and friends to continue the festive feeling, with many people in Lincolnshire enjoying a once-a-year chance to go to the races. Adult tickets for Boxing Day are from £11.70 in advance (£13 on the day) for the Lawn Enclosure. Tattersalls advance admission is £19.80 (£22 on the day) and County is £24.30 (£27 on the day).
