The Bargain Buy that continues to Shine.
Regional puts Bethell Racing on the map, running a brilliant race to finish 2nd in the Dukhan Sprint in Qatar on Saturday (19/02). This was a terrific performance from regional who handled the 13 hour flight exceptionally well. However his suitcase may be overweight for the journey home picking up £45,000 in prize money!
Congratulations to his owners Future Champions Racing, we hope you enjoyed every minute of your time at Doha Racetrack. Well Done to our Head Travelling Lad Liam who traveled Regional out to Qatar, and had him exceptionally turned out for the race.
What makes this placing more outstanding is the price paid for Regional at the Tattersalls July Sale. Ed purchased him for the four figure sum of 3,500gns. It must be agreed that this result is an amazing achievement from a 3,500gns purchase. Regional now has a total of £69,628 to his name in prize money, which we must agree is quite extraordinary.
Regional has evidently thrived since arriving at Thorngill last summer and all credit must go to the hardworking team here at Bethell Racing. Well Done Team! Let’s hope the success can continue throughout the season.
