Racing: Anthem odds on to overcome Daylami
Saturday 04 September 1999
The head-to-head bet will be void if either does not run, and is determined by which horse finishes ahead of the other regardless of who wins the race.
Ernie Weymes yesterday cited financial reasons for his decision to retire from training next February. "I've put pounds 25,000 to pounds 30,000 of my own money into racing over the last 12 years and I've still got an overdraft," he said. "I just couldn't carry on subsidising owners. It's been a hard time but a good time and I wouldn't have swapped my life for anything."
Weymes, 64, who trained Lanzarote on the Flat, has 11 horses in his care and will hand over to his son John.
