Harestock Handicap - 2nd July 2015

On another great night in the 2015 Handicap series we had 22 runners of whom 14 managed to meet or beat their handicaps and no fewer than 13 runners passed the post during the "blanket finish" (ie within 15 secs of par).  We had one absolute newbie - Tom Craggs - of whom more later and welcomed Lucy Elliott on her first handicap outng of the year, again more later.

Our winner on the night was Rhian Harrison showing massive improvement in her 2nd handicap outing and leading the race from start to finish....even the fast finishing Lucy Elliott couldn't quite catch her.   Rhian continues our amazing record of having a different winner each month this could be you next time.

full results of the July race are here

On a great night for fast running we were treated to a new course records for both men and ladies.
Tom Craggs showed fine form to set a new mark of 5'50 on his event debut, now he knows the route there is more to come there. Lucy Elliott similarly looked very sharp in bettering her own previous best to set a new ladies record of 6'12, I fancy there is more to come there too. In total we had 9 runners under the 7 minute target including Lloyd Dickson getting his name on the honours board for the first time with 7'00 dead.  
The full honours board is here 

The overall standings are a moving picture with each event throwing up a new cocktail of scores and discards....there is yet no clear leader this year but in the July snapshot Steve Oliver heads the standings with Charlie Hoskins and James Moore close behind. 

The next race in the 2015 handicap series will be on the first Thursday of the month....the 6th August.  Meet at the track 18.45 for 19.00
