Treehouse Pony Racing Graduate Award
An innovation last season, the Pony Racing Graduate Award showcases Pointing’s role as stepping stone from Pony Racing to completing over fences.
Fledgling Talent … 2018 Pony Racing Graduate Jack Tudor
Just three days after his 16th birthday in May, Jack kicked home his first winner – High Hatton at Holnicote – beating his great friend, and this season’s leading newcomer, Connor Brace to boot! In the final weeks of the Season Jack’s tally became 3 winners, 2 seconds and 4 thirds, and he looks a decent bet to follow in his family’s footsteps – his father Jonathan partnered more than 70 winners between the flags, and his cousin James was National champion in 2006/7. We’re looking forward to following Jack’s progress in the 2018 – 2019 Season.
The 2018 – 2019 award will be sponsored by Treehouse Sporting Colours who’ve got together with some leading brands and created a fantastic kit bundle worth £1000 as the prize for this season’s winner.
All former Pony Racers whose first ride in Point to Points was during or after the 2016 – 2017 Season are eligible for this award
As we search for our winner we’ll be following the progress of ex-pony racers from across the country. The award will be made to a former Pony Racer who has made a successful transition to racing over fences.
The selection criteria are broad – the winner may be a total newcomer who’s caught the eye, or a more established rider who has demonstrated enthusiasm and progression as a truly amateur race rider “Between the Flags”.
