One thought on “Tuesday 24th May – Thruscross Handicap

  1. A good win for Debra B. in this race 5 of the Eric Smith Trophy , she crossed the finish line in 1.06 . Former President Tom H. had a solid run in this challenging route finishing in a robust 1.03 . Also the guest Alex had a great night finishing in a significant 1.04 . The leader of the table Rachel M. had a super run finishing in a strong 1.02 . Ex President Billy R. had a superb night finishing in a fast 58.36 . Lesley P. had a fantastic run but she had bad luck finishing inside the woodland by the reservoir , I had a similar experience 15 years ago a wrong turn I ended up in this dark wood with an incline terrain where it is difficult to run and as well to find the way out . Lesley finished in a steady 1.14 . Well done everyone .
