Spencer three in front
Saturday 29 September 2007
Jamie Spencer's helicopter dash to Haydock yesterday paid off when Best Prospect gave him a three-winner lead (148-145) over Seb Sanders in the jockeys' championship.
Spencer, who had earlier finished unplaced on his only ride at Ascot, was delayed and missed his first intended mount, Old Romney, who finished unplaced in fifth race at Haydock.
However, Spencer won the next race on Best Prospect, the 6-5 favourite. Spencer said: "I thought Old Romney, on his form for Mark Johnston, would have had a good chance but the ground was probably too soft. Best Prospect loves to get his toe in but the race didn't really pan out. They went fast, then hacked for two furlongs and quickened it up," he told At The Races.
"He's won and is looking very well-treated again. The handicapper has given him a chance and he has taken advantage of it."
