Megan Nicholls, daughter of champion National Hunt trainer Paul, has been crowned 2012 pony racing champion in the 148cm series, held at Newmarket racecourse this weekend (Saturday 6 October).
Lorcan Williams on Stretcholt Hermes won the 138cm series.
Twelve budding young jockeys qualifed for each of the finals, through the 2012 Charles Owen Pony Racing series that has been running since April.
Megan and her pony Wotarisk were unbeaten this season.
Second in the 148cm final was Sean Bowen and Cudlic Verona, third Charlotte Greenaway and Miss Wonderful.
In the 138cm final Jamie Perrett on Dillan’s Girl was a close second and third was Charlie Todd on Little Anne.
“The finals at Newmarket were a fitting end to a tremendous series,” said Rebecca Davies of the Pony Racing Authority.
“Lorcan and Megan were worthy winners, and the young riders are focusing on next season already! Point-to-point pony racing begins early in the New Year and we look forward to another exciting year ahead.”
