Crowley’s 46th winner of month!
Championship leader Jim Crowley is believed to have created his own piece of history on Friday evening at Newcastle by riding his 46th winner in a calendar month on Castleacre.
Jim Crowley: Seems unstoppable at present.
Records show that Sir Gordon Richards and Fred Archer managed 45 winners in a month while in modern times the best Sir Anthony McCoy managed was 41.
Crowley has been unstoppable in his march towards a maiden jockeys' championship 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.
