Horse racing: A quick double for Jennie’s Basford Green stables

LOCAL trainer Jennie Candlish has landed a winning double for racehorse owners Paul and Clare Rooney this weekend.

Jennie followed up hurdler Costa Percy’s victory at Hexham yesterday with another success today, when veteran chaser Beeves won the feature race on the card at Perth, the Horizon Parking City of Perth Gold Cup.

Punters who invested in the two runners from the Basford Green stables will be raising a glass or two in appreciation tonight, after being rewarded with generous odds of 8-1 and 12/1 respectively.
