With back to back races the fields were small and the photographers tired. The jockeys probably were too but they are younger and fitter than most of the photographers. Bull Run Hunt always hosts an entertaining day of family fun and this year was no exception. More photos are available on Susan M. Carter Photography.
Harry’s Crown and Sam Cockburn come on the outside around Meet at Eleven (Ire) with Todd McKenna in the novice rider flat race. Harry’s Crown went on to win.
Sam also won the amateur/novice rider hurdle race on Meshwaar.
The sky made a beautiful backdrop to Swimming River and Ben Garner before the open flat race.
Jeff Murphy and Liverpool Gloves won the maiden hurdle.
Jacob Roberts and Hey Doctor won the novice timber.
Sam Cockburn rode heavy draft horse, Granite, to second place in a field of light drafts. Quite a change from his usual mounts!
