Bubbly festive cheer for Basford Green racing stables

SUNSHINEANDBUBBLES brought some early festive cheer to the Basford Green racing stables by winning on the all-weather at Southwell today.

The four-year-old burst through under Irish apprentice jockey Rossa Ryan to land the 1m13yds Sunbets.CO.UK handicap at rewarding odds of 12/1.

The victory ended a recent quiet spell for local trainer Jennie Candlish and delighted the horse’s owners Amazing Racing.

Seventeen-year-old jockey Ryan, a 7lb claimer, was the victim of a nasty fall at Chester Races in July.

The teenage rider was knocked unconsciousness when his mount, Penny Red, slipped and unshipped him in the ANS Maiden Fillies Stakes and was taken to hospital for precautionary tests
