Leading the Point To Point Racing Company PPORA National Young Horse Award contest is Monsieur Gibraltar, trained in Wessex by Rose Loxton for Mr J Crane, Mr I Fogg and Mr P Nicholls. This 7 year old French bred by Spirit One who came into the season with notable credentials – four wins ( 2 in Points and 2 in Hunter Chases) from last term – has since added a Men’s Open and a Ladies’ Open at Larkhill, along with a further runner up spot at the same course.
His total of 26 points is just 2 more than his closest pursuer The Two Amigos. Bred by Robert Waley Cohen, and formerly trained by David Pipe , this 6 year old by Midnight legend appears to have relished ground conditions at Wadebridge this season where he has made it 3 from 3 in a Restricted, Confined and Intermediate for his trainer Nicola Martin and the Bradley Partnership.
There’s a long way to go and plenty to play for at both Area and National level – we’ll keep you updated via this website as the season unfolds
