H&H columnist Richard Burton breaks point-to-point record

Richard Burton has broken the record for the number of point-to-point wins by a British rider, scoring his 385th victory at the South Herefordshire meeting at Garnons on Sunday.

The 34-year-old three-times national men’s champion rode a treble on Thats Ben, Heavy Weather and Sin E An Capaill, the latter being the one who beat Julian Pritchard’s 384 set in 2005.

“The crowd cheered me all the way back down the run-in and into the winner’s enclosure and the jockeys came out to greet me,” said Richard.

See Richard’s column on page 49 of this week‘s issue (10 March, 2011).
