THE York and Ainsty point-to-point meeting near Easingwold last weekend saw an excellent turn out from spectators and runners.

Two jockeys - Jack Teal and Will Milburn - were in particularly good form on the day, both riding doubles, while a huge milestone was reached by John Dawson who rode his 150th winner on Rockmount Rocker.

Jack Teal won the prize for closest finish on the day when Tellmenow flashed home from a long way back to snatch the four, five and six year old maiden.

Jack then went on to secure the second maiden on the card with the Karen Clifton-trained McMurphy. The pair stayed on well to beat Goody Hallett in second who is taking some big steps forward and now getting his jumping together under Ross Wilson.

John Dawson had a day to remember as he recorded his 150th winner aboard the Chris Pimlott-trained Rockmount Rocker; the pair quickened clear on the run in and beat the prominently ridden Calisson d’Alene and Emma Todd. Will Milburn was another to score a double on the day, the first of which came in the opening Hunt Members’ race aboard Strongpoint. He then went on to complete his double riding Six-A-Side, restrained behind the leaders, the pair led on the approach towards two out and stayed on well to hold off Zandino and Elliott Brookbanks.

The Ladies’ Open saw a hugely impressive performance from Ballinahow Bill and Lottie Crane, trained by Justin Landy the pair pulled their way to the front early on and won clear, while the Club Members’ race saw a progressive performance from the 10-year-old Refusal, following up his effort at Charm Park under Billy Garitty and holding off the fast-finishing Tasheba and Amy Collier, while Roll The Dice and Jack Andrews finished third.
