THERE was further joy for members of the Northumberland Racing Club at a recent meeting in Kelso.

Total Assets, trained locally by Simon Waugh at Molesden, achieved her second victory over hurdles under rules, despite carrying nearly a stone more than her nearest rival, Gorey Lane.

She battled her way to the line, winning by a couple of lengths with her ears pricked and going away.

Vicky Knox, who runs the racing club, said: “This diminutive little mare has been a joy to have in the Northumberland Racing Club because she tries so hard and thoroughly enjoys the whole experience.

“To have won twice with her now (the first win was at Newcastle) is more than any of us ever expected.

“We have just taken delivery of a new horse, Crow Down, and she will be a hard act to follow, but he is well-bred and won last time out so we are ever hopeful.”
