Jacob Mitchell relished his first winner under rules yesterday at Southwell. It may have been a claimer at the end of a cold day in January, however this will be a moment that Jacob will remember for years to come. It was Jacobs 7th ride under rules and his 2nd ride on Regarde Moi. Regarde Moi is an older horse that joined Prestige Place just before Christmas and he and Jacob seem to have made a good match.
The race run over the 1 mile trip was hotly contested with Jacob having to take on older professional jockeys, with only his 7 lbs claim to give him an advantage. Jacob has come from a pony racing background and has done well to achieve his first winner from a handful of rides.
“I am delighted that he has achieved his first winner and also for it to be on one of my horses,I hope that he continues to work hard and that more winners follow.” Added a pleased trainer Marco Botti.
