RACING: Tart streak extended
10:00am Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
Prince Regal, trained by Alan Jarvis at Twyford, continued apprentice jockey Robert Tart’s winning streak with a game success at Windsor on Monday.
The rider, fresh from landing the Irish Cesarewitch on Montefeltro for North Yorkshire trainer Brian Ellison the previous day, was called up by Jarvis as a late replacement for Michael JM Murphy to ride the three-year-old gelding at the Berkshire track.
And the move paid off as the son of Cockney Rebel, who was bred by Jarvis’s wife, Ann, appreciated a step down in trip to battle home by half a length from Church Music in a six-furlong handicap.
