LEGENDS RACE FOR CHAMPION

PETER SCARGILL reports for the Racing Post Grand National Day 2011 (09.04.2011)
“RACEGOERS at Aintree today will be treated to the sights of a host of Grand National legends when 11 famous jockeys of yesteryear get the leg up to contest the John Smith’s Aintree Legends Charity race.

“The 1m5f  Flat race , due off at 1pm, is being run in aid of the Bob Champion Cancer Trust and comes 30 years after Champion and Aldaniti recorded their remarkable against- the- odds Nationial victory.


“Champion, wearing the white and blue silks of Aldaniti, will lead the parade of runners on to the course alongside last year’s Grand National winning trainer Jonjo O’Neill.


“Among the names riding today are National-winning jockey’s Graham Thorner, Ben de Haan, Hywel Davies, Brendan Powell, Marcus Armytage, Carl Llewellyn and Tony Dobbin.


“Ten-time Irish champion jockey Charlie Swan favourite PLENTY POCKET, is also in action as is eight times British champion Peter Scudamore.



“Champion whose charity has raised more than £12 million since being started in 1983, said ‘ The 1981 Grand National was a remarkable day, not just for me but for those around the world who gained hope from my victory in their battles against cancer.”

“Thirty years on and with the money this race raises, I want to continue to reduce the odds against cancer.”

“Totesport made PLENTY POCKET the 3/1 favourite for Swan, who took the Leger Legends race run at Doncaster last year, with HIGGY’S BOY’S the 7/2 second favourite.”

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT


TOBY BALDING 74 suffered a stroke that has impaired his sight, he was admitted to the Royal Hampshire Hospital in Winchester last Monday (4th April)


JONATHAN GEAKE, Toby’s son in law who took over the training in 2004, said “Toby has had a stroke. He lunched with us on Sunday, but was not really himself and was taken into hospital on Monday. Things change on a daily basis, he is semi- blind and not great on his feet, but his actual limbs and speech are fine and he has already started therapy. He is not in great shape, but the doctors say he will improve.”


GRAHAM GREEN reporting for the Racing Post last Thursday (April 7) “Confirmed that Toby had planned to attend all three days at Aintree one of his favourite meetings. It is unclear whether Balding will be able to attend a ceremony at Buckingham Palace next month at which he is due to receive the OBE he was awarded in the New Year’s Honours List.

“An honorary member of the Jockey Club, Balding has also played a significant role in racing politics on behalf of the National Trainers’ Federation, which he helped to found, and during a three-year-term as non- executive director of the BHA.


“The family is limiting hospital visits so as not to put Balding under too much strain, but get-well messages would be appreciated and Geake said; “We are reading the cards to him.”


TOBY BALDING a generous horseman  of the highest calibre, training more than 2,000 winners in his career. Winning the Grand National at Aintree with  HIGHLAND WEDDING in 1969,  and with  LITTLE POLVEIR in 1989. Two Champion Hurdles with BEECH ROAD in 1989, and with  MORLEY STREET in 1991. The Cheltenham Gold Cup with  COOL GROUND in 1992.


Toby did not just teach young people about horses and horseracing, he also educated them about life and for this reason so many of his pupils have gone on to have the kind of influence that has brought the world of horseracing forward.


 The British  bloodhorse illiterate regulation and disciplinary personnel now under the banner of the British Horseracing Authority will always be in debt to his knowledge,  and wisdom over the rights and needs of all horses bred for racing. Foals, yearlings, two year olds and up, to include all the young ones who have just left school and are hoping to make a career in horseracing needing the right kind of learning environment  to move on with confidence and caring for the wellbeing of all the horses.



HORSERACING A UNIQUE AND REMARKABLE SPORT
