Sam Coltherd riding 25/1 shot Darsi Dancer won the Renew Holdings Handicap Hurdle over three miles three furlongs at Sedgefield on Monday 12th October.

The win was the Selkirk teenager’s first under National Hunt rules.

After jostling for the lead for most of the race, Darsi Dancer took up the running jumping the last flight and forged on towards the line to win by 3/4 of a length.

The seven year old Gelding is trained by Sam’s father local trainer Stuart Clotherd. Darsi Dancer is jointly owned by Stuart and Kelso racehorse transporter Mr Eric Gillie.

Ayr’s October meeting could be the horses next racecourse appearance.
