Helen Tredwell takes the Mattie Brown Stakes and Notts County

May 18, 2016

Helen Tredwell headed Notts County’s historic class, the top-billed Mattie Brown Stakes with Colin and Ann Garrett’s Sebastian VII, an Unbelievable Darco 10-year-old out of an Animo mare.  The on-form pair have recently returned from wins in Bonheiden 2* and Lanaken 3*.

The top three placed were filled by British-bred horses.  Emily Ward took second on the scopey mare Remi Cavallieri, a 10-year-old daughter of Handel, and third went to Dale Burnham and Romanella Gold, a Romanov 10-year-old mare.

Kerry Brennan and the effusive, ever-eager Wellington M, a Quidam De Revel/Cash 13-year-old, topped the area trial.  Only two double clears were realised.  Tim Davies took second on the Ferro 14-year-old Valentijn O with fastest faulter Holly Gillott in third on the Irish-bred Obos Quality eight-year-old Quality Old Joker.

Morgan Kent and Dolores V, a Berlin/Volatire eight-year-old she shares with Richard Howley, claimed the Speedi-Beet HOYS grade C top spot to ensure a finalist place at the NEC.  They won by the narrowest of margins, just 0.05 sec from Holly Gillott and the Irish eight-year-old PLS Halo Diamond.

And Morgan’s partner Richard Howley netted the third HOYS qualifying place on D.Millfield Darin, a Berlin/Lux eight-year-old.
