The Bon Life!
Christmas has come early for five lucky members of the Coral Champions Club as Bon Chic makes her debut over hurdles in the 1:30 at Fakenham on Sunday afternoon.
All five, along with a guest each will represent the club, enjoy a pre-race chat with trainer Dan Skelton & jockey Harry Skelton in the Parade Ring followed by a meal and receive 10% of any prize money should Bon Chic finish in the frame tomorrow!
This is the club’s first foray into National Hunt ownership and its first ever runner over jumps. Club trainer Dan Skelton is hopeful of a big run as she has schooled particularly well since her arrival at Lodge Hill stables in early November. Harry Skelton takes the ride. Bon Chic was purchased at the Doncaster Autumn Sales. She made all to win at Punchestown on her most recent start by a cosy three lengths in mid-October.
The club also purchased Template from the Amanda Perrett yard at the Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale at the end of October. He has gone into training with Harry Fry and is expected to make his National Hunt debut in a juvenile hurdle in three weeks.

The Jumps season is now getting into top gear and in association with the Racing Post we have a 28 stable tour compilation of National Hunt racing’s top trainers. Willie Mullins, Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson and many more share their thoughts on star inmates, as well as providing some very helpful notes regarding promising young horses to follow.
