Terry – Leader of the Pack
Terry (aka Le Tueur) followed up his win at Huntingdon with another win in the 3 mile 5 furlong chase at Fakenham on 17 March. Terry was off top weight even taking into account Jay Tidball’s 7 pound claim but won majestically. Both he and Jay exuded confidence throughout the race, getting into a lovely rhythm and jumping beautifully and biding their time over the marathon trip. Terry moved up to take the lead with just over a circuit to go and continued to travel strongly despite the soft ground. Another superb jump at the last enabled Terry to win by some 9 lengths. Winning his first and second chase so quickly after having finished second so often, is Terry’s confidence now increased sufficiently to enable him to win again?
This was the third win in just twelve days for our racing club, Yen Hall Farm Racing!
