A bright but cloudy day ensured that the going was good in the UK horse racing results yesterday (Tuesday 26 May) at Hexham Racecourse. Seven races were hosted throughout, with gaps of just 30 minutes between each.
Tickenwolf started the evening with a 7/4 win as favourite in the 18:10 Maiden Hurdle. Samedi Soir was the next winner, claiming the 18:40 Mares Handicap Hurdle at 9/2. Scarlet Fire then delivered a win as 2/1 favourite in the 19:10 Handicap Chase.
Native Optimist beat out 11/4 favourite Verko to win the 19:40 Handicap Hurdle at 11/2. Gin Cobbler won next at 11/4 in the 20:10 Handicap Chase, finishing ahead of 16/1 prospect Forestside.
Chicago Outfit provided another win for the favourite-backers at 4/1 in the 20:40 Handicap Chase. Trackside bookies could then breathe a sigh of relief as 12/1 Pekanheim won in 21:10 Novices Handicap.
