Scores On The Doors

We were thrilled to present the overall Champion Leading Jockey, Trainer and Conditional Jockey on the last meeting of the 2018/19 Jump Season on Thursday 11th April! 

Harry Skelton took the award for Champion Leading Jockey with an impressive 6 wins throughout the season and 10 placings! Thomas Dowson claimed the Conditional Jockey prize with 4 wins and 4 placings, and we were thrilled to congratulate local popular trainer Phillip Kirby who took an amazing 11 wins and 6 placings.

"For Phil this was a very proud moment – to be leading NH Trainer for 2018/19 at our local Grade 1 Jumping Track is a fine achievement and we’d like to thank our Owners, our Jockeys, our Sponsors TOPSPEC, our hard working team, and not least our wonderful HORSES for making this possible. Thanks to Millbry Hill for sponsoring – we’ve been horse shopping with them since we started out in 2007 so delighted they were sponsoring the prize and we look forward to spending the vouchers – very generous of them"

We look forward to another fantastic season with Wetherby Racecourse next season when the Jump Season returns in October 2019. 

A Few Words From Wetherby...

“We have enjoyed another tremendous Jump season at Wetherby which has seen some fantastic highlights.  One of which was the amazing treble achieved by Philip Kirby at the bet365 Charlie Hall meeting in November, with Lady Buttons, Nautical Nitwit and Wemyss Point.  Philip went on to have a fantastic season, and we are delighted that for the first time he has won the Leading Trainer award at Wetherby. We wish him and the Green Oaks Team continued success with their flat horses during the summer. 

Harry Skelton and Thomas Dowson were our Leading Jockeys;  both have had a tremendous season and we very much look forward to seeing them back at Wetherby on Wednesday 16th October. We were delighted to have been able to work with Millbry Hill during the season; we feel they are a perfect partner for a country Racecourse and the support they have provided has been much appreciated.  We very much look forward to continuing our relationship with Millbry Hill in the future”.
