Crowley believed to have set record with 46th win
British jockeys championship leader Jim Crowley is believed to have created his own piece of history at Newcastle by riding his 46th winner in a calendar month on Castleacre.
Records show that Gordon Richards and Fred Archer managed 45 winners in a month, while in modern times the best Anthony McCoy managed was 41.
Crowley has been unstoppable in his march towards a maiden title this year and while his main rival Silvestre de Sousa was also on the scoresheet at Gosforth Park, Crowley made sure he would remember the night for a different reason.
Hugo Palmer's debutante Castleacre was sent off the 6-4 favourite for the Fresh Approach/ebfstallions.com Maiden Fillies' Stakes and ran out an easy winner by four and a half lengths.
