DODSON & HORRELL PPORA CLUB MEMBERS NOVICE RIDERS SERIES 2015/16
Dodson & Horrell have sponsored the PPORA Novice Riders Series for the last 28 seasons, ensuring that this series has gone from strength to strength. With 12 qualifiers hosted around the country, this year the prestigious end-of-year final will be held for the first time at Garthorpe Races near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.
In addition to their sponsored races, all other races in the Pointing calendar which have a Novice Rider condition (up to and including Sunday, 1st May) offer a place in the Final to the first three horses and riders past the post.
Dodson & Horrell has a substantial association with Point-to-Pointing, sponsoring nearly 700 Point-to-Point races stemming from its initial support of the local Oakley, Pytchley and Woodland Pytchley fixtures back in 1987.
Dodson & Horrell also sponsor the prestigious Wilkinson Sword Award that is presented at the annual PPORA lunch to the leading male novice rider under-21 who has yet to ride a winner under Rules at the season's outset. The award has produced a long list of talented young jockeys such as Sean Bowen, who is now a Conditional Jockey for Paul Nicholls.
Last year's PPORA winner Jack Andrews, who was just 17, had already established himself as a pony racing jockey before he piloted the much-fancied Cottage Oak to a seven length victory in the final at Tabley, Cheshire.
