Second place with Townie Mac
I was booked for two races today and I was very happy to get in the saddle for the owners Stall Molenhof. Wim and Nadine have grown dear to my heart, as the beginning of my career is very closely connected to them.
About Townie Mac I can say that finishing second as a long shot was good. We had a great trip but had to start over again a few times in the final straight. That was very unfortunate but, frankly, the joy of finally having been on a good horse again in times of Corona outweighs everything else.
Molly le Clou was a long shot in the race with a strong field in which 10 horses could win. However, the seventh place finish was a bit weak, so my husband had him examined after the race. He was totally congested, so Molly was excused.
