Jardine jumps at new venture

Hawick racehorse trainer Iain ‘Scobie’ Jardine is moving from his base near the town and expects to be installed at retired handler Len Lungo’s Hetland Hill complex at Carrutherstown on September 1.

The purpose-built stable has been well maintained but unused since Lungo quit training in 2009.

Jardine, 40, said: “It’s a fabulous opportunity and all my owners are coming with me.

“We’ve had jumps winners, including one at Aintree last summer, but we’re gearing mostly towards the Flat at the minute.”
