Tiger’s last race
The last race of Cheltenham Festival Wednesday was also the last time out for two-time Grand National-winning hero Tiger Roll. It would have been the fairytale ending to his stellar career, had he and Davy Russell taken the Glenfarclas Chase, but it was not to be, as his stablemate Delta Work edged over the line in front. The pair walked to the winner’s enclosure together to huge cheers, as Tiger Roll burned bright on the racecourse for the last time.
Saving our riding schools
A joint effort is being made to safeguard the future of our riding centres. Industry bodies have collaborated on the project, which aims to gather a picture of where the sector is and the challenges facing our schools, as “a viable future for our centres has never been more uncertain,” said British Equestrian head of participation Mandana Mehran Pour.
