Eventing news article image

The 2014 RoR/BEDMAX Racing2Eventing Series Winner is Elaine Tragett and her 16 year-old thoroughbred turned eventer, Special Constable and taking 2nd place in this year's competition is rider Abigail Sparkes on her fomer racehorse The Jolly Miller.

Following the news of her win, the 2014/RoR Bedmax Winner has also been invited to take part in the RoR Parade of Equine Champions on QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot Racecourse this weekend, Saturday 18th October. This special RoR Parade includes seven other Champion horses and aims to showcase to racing audiences the versatility and success of the thoroughbred adapting to their second careers.

Originally purchased and retrained by top event rider Pippa Funnell, during his four year racing career in training with Ben Case, Special Constable ran 10 races over hurdles and fences.  Special Constable, known as Midge, was retrained and competed by Pippa in 2006 & 2007. He was then a stable companion to Pippa’s other great Eventing horse Ensign. Elaine took him on in 2012 following his two-year rest and recovery period due to a neck injury. 

Elaine, who works full-time as a major Account Manager for 365it in Reading and lives in Royal Wootten Bassett, said that;  “ Winning the RoR Series is fantastic and to also be parading at Ascot is a dream come true for me too! Being there at the racetrack, on this prestigious occasion, completes a full circle of his life. He came from racing and returns back to his roots to show others that a race horse can truly turn his hoof to anything with time, love and trust.”
