"It was fantastic. She strode out so well. Shes just gorgeous and were just hoping to run her at Cheltenham next month at the April meeting. She goes over hurdles next season."
Former Countdown presenter Carol Vorderman was in the Winners Enclosure at Chepstow races on Thursday, March 21, when her horse, Subway Surf, won the Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Mares' Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race.
The TV favourite cheered on the five-year-old that she part owns with the Surf On The Turf syndicate, as it beat the favourite, Vienna Court, by five lengths.
Carole told Sky Sports Racing that the syndicate hopes to run Subway Surf at Cheltenham next month at its April meeting.
“It was fantastic. She strode out so well. She’s just gorgeous and we’re just hoping to run her at Cheltenham next month at the April meeting. She goes over hurdles next season.”
Alongside its regular programme of race meetings, Chepstow has a number of special events planned throughout the spring and summer, including a Grand National Party Raceday with Britpop DJ sets, an Easter Monday Family Raceday, and pop legends Madness are set to play there on 8 June.
