December 2014 – Southway Star

 

Up at Ridgeway Racing, Neil King's training yard near Barbury Castle, they are all very proud of nine year-old mare Southway Star.

And justifiably so: in November she chalked up four 'chase victories in 18 days.

Neil King bought Southway Star at October's Ascot sales for £2,300.  She had, after all, begun her racing career in 2008.   He is obviously very fond of this "this cracking little mare who jumps for fun."  

She is small - and, they say, calm and good natured.  She is now owned by The Ridgeway Racing For Fun syndicate - and won them over £15,000 with those four wins.

Then on December 1 at Plumpton she bid to make it five wins in a row.  But Southway Star felt the pressure and could only manage fourth place.

But from the look of this spry mare there is, as they say, “much more in the tank”.
