Moroman's Stratford triumph rounds off superb season
The recently completed 2014/15 season has been a highly successful one for East Anglians.
The star performer, two-legged-wise at least, has been Gina Andrews, who has ridden with incredible skill, tactical acumen and determination to reclaim the National Lady Riders title that she won in 2010/11.
She was seen at her very best in the Pertemps Champion Foxhunters Hunter Chase at Stratford on May 29th when she got the front-running Moroman back up on the line to land a memorable victory.
Moroman (pictured above centre en route to winning at High Easter in 2014) is trained just outside Thetford by David Kemp and is owned by Barry Belchem. He was the first East Anglian-qualified horse to win one of the nation’s top three hunter chases since Double Turn landed the Aintree Foxhunter back in 1991.
Congratulations are also due to Nick Wright, from Badlingham, near Newmarket, who is set to become Britain’s was successful owner for the 2014-15 Point-To-Point season.
And, returning to the Andrews family, Gina played a major part in another highlight of the campaign when all three Andrews siblings (including sister Bridget and brother Jack) rode winners at the Thurlow meeting at Horseheath in late February- a remarkable achievement.
