Mens XC Match 2 Results- Epsom Downs

The forecast afternoon rain didn’t quite make it onto the track, but the going was still on the good to soft side, as a slightly reduced field from Barnes hit the famous race track at Epsom for match 2 of the season.  Lining up against stiff competition from other famous Surrey yards, the Barnes thoroughbreds put in another brave performance, and continue to fly the flag (literally and metaphorically).

With one old nag pulling up lame inside the first furlong, and pre race favorite The Kiwi (James McP) eyeing up the Class 1 Valencia Marathon next week, the odds were always stacked against the Barnes boys, but decent performances from all and a great afternoon out.  Results can be found here on the Surrey XC site.

(NB Match 3 date has been brought forward from January to the Saturday  2nd December.  More on this quite soon..)
