Bark De Triomphe


The love of my life Belle represented the jockeys against the trainers in the fiercely competitive Bark De Triomphe at Beverley today. She qualified for the final having been placed in her heat, but it could have gone better.

You can see from the photo that I was more revved up than she was before the start. She broke well and was up with the pace for a long way before losing concentration and misbehaving. I think she may need blinkers when we return to try and win it next year.
