A Great Turn Out.

Plumpton staged its Ladies Day today and had a good turn out.  Those of us who arrived an hour before racing were entertained by The Polka Dots singing in the 40s style of the Andrews Sisters.

The owners were equally well turned out.
Then I'm Lucy won Frankie £25 for being the "Best Turned Out".

In the same race Maccabees won £369 for his owners when finishing 3rd.  He was held up in the rear by his jockey, Tom Cheesman, in the early stages and was only moved into the sharp end of the race on the final circuit.  He battled well over the final two hurdles to take the third spot and rewarded place punters on the tote with a return of over 6/1!

Then it was Red Anchor's turn.  He jumped well and ran prominently, but the faster ground allowed his rivals to show a turn of foot at the finish, but he still picked up £250 prize money for his 6th place under the extended prize money scheme.
