We are honoured that two of our races next Monday 9th November will be run in memory of Rose Loxton, a key member of the Paul Nicholls team for many years who sadly passed away in August age 59.
Rose began working for the eleven times champion trainer in 2002 and progressed to head girl, looking after the likes of four-time Stayers’ Hurdle winner Big Buck’s and Kauto Star.
In 2010, she started training point-to-pointers and proved highly successful, saddling 55 winners from 104 runners in points and 23 winners from 47 runners in hunter chases.
With the former Paul Nicholls-trained Caid Du Berlais, Rose was victorious in the Champion Hunters Chase at Punchestown in 2018 and 2019. She also trained Shantou Flyer, who finished third in this year’s Foxhunter Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
The memorial races on Monday have been arranged by owner Andy Stewart, owner of Big Buck’s and many other top class horses.
