Basford Grange stables in the money at the races

BIG Time Dancer was a big winner for punters who follow the runners sent out from Basford Grange racing stables near Leek.

The five-year-old gelding, trained by Jennie Candlsh, pictured, stormed clear to win the 2.15 handicap hurdle over 2m 3f at Doncaster Races at rewarding odds of 12/1.

The Candlish yard was counting the prize money again less  half-an-hour later when Al Destoor, ridden by Richie McLernon, finished runner-up in the 2.35 novices hurdle at Bangor at odds of 15/2.
