Kilcock Jockey Robbie Downey rode a double for Thirsk trainer David Barron at Redcar Racecourse last Monday evening.
‘Venturous’ (9/1) struck late to win the Watch Racing TV In Stunning HD Handicap Stakes to complete the double while earlier in the day Downey stayed cool to win the Join Racing TV Now Handicap Stakes aboard Frosted Lass (9/2), outstaying favourite Tomahawk Ridge.
Downey spoke after completing his double about his hopes to raise his profile as a freelance jockey after coming over from Ireland; “I tested the water towards the end of last season for a few weeks, then rode in India during the winter. It’s going well but I’m just trying to pick up more rides.”
