Camerooney wins Betfair prize at Ayr Racecourse
By: Iain Ferguson
VETERAN horse Camerooney (pictured below) was the star performer at Ayr Racecourse’s September Finale Raceday last Tuesday when winning the £15,000 Betfair Scottish Mile Series Final Handicap in the hands of apprentice Nathan Allison for trainer Marjorie Fife.
The 11 year-old was a 16/1 chance and made all the running to win by a length and a quarter from the Keith Dalgleish trained Hanalei Bay.
Linda Perratt saddled Pitt Rivers to win the Racing UK Anywhere Available Now Handicap at generous odds of 20/1 ridden by Paul Mulrennan who also rode hot favourite Juncart (4/5) to win the racinguk.com Maiden Stakes from Westhoughton. Kevin Ryan who trained the winner also saddled Dominic Cork owned by Janis McPherson to win the nursery handicap in the hands of Fergal Lynch at odds of 4/1.
Favourite backers were rewarded when Mick Channon’s Jersey Brown won the last at 6/4.
The final meeting of the 2014 flat season at Ayr takes place this Thursday 9 October with the first race due off at 2.10pm.
