WINNER! Reputation at Thirsk – 3rd September 2022

The heavens opened at Thirsk for Ladies Day and Reputation had no previous form on soft ground, in fact it looked like he hated it!  But we were there and Jimmy had a cunning plan!  Having been drawn wide in the previous race Jimmy had stayed wide on the unwatered ground and nearly pinched it for Tim Easterby’s team.  He’d try to do the same again but go one better – which he did!

Delighted for Karen and family who have stuck by Rep when he could easily have been retired and after a string of placed efforts he finally got his head in front!

Rep Thirsk 3rd Sept 2022REPUTATION took the scenic route, racing away from the others down the back straight, pinching enough of a lead to snap a lengthy losing sequence. The 9yo was winning for the first time since April 2019, with this owing more to the enterprising ride than a career-low handicap mark.”
