Maynooth Jockey Sean Davis partnered ‘Gabrial The One’ to victory in the ‘Thyme People Handicap Stakes’ at Chester Races on Saturday afternoon.
The Richard Fahey trained horse, who was 4/1, came home 3/4 of a length in front of ‘Never Do Nothing’ back in second place, mounting his challenge just outside the furlong mark before taking the lead inside the final furlong, to run on rather cosily in the end.
For five pound claiming apprentice Davis, who is one of the leading candidates to capture the British Apprentice Championship this season, it was a first win at Chester, as he continues to make a name for himself across the water. Davis currently sits at the top of that said championship.
Richard Fahey had his say on his official Twitter page following the win; “Winner number four is Gabrial The One and a winner at Chester for Dr Marwan Koukash. He did it really nicely under apprentice Sean Davis.”
It’s another win for our local jockey Sean Davis, who partnered Furzig to victory at Thirsk Racecourse Ltd (Official) last night for trainer Richard Fahey Racing.
He also had a winner at Hamilton Park Racecourse on Friday night as he got favourite Glasvegas up to win.
Davis is one of the leading contenders to take the British Apprentice Championship, even at such an early stage in the season. And you can follow all of his fortunes here at Robert Cox Sport, your number one for local sport 👍
