It's not so often we host the leading national Point-to-Point owner in the Three Counties, and I put this down largely to the competitive nature of our racing that doesn't allow one stable or person to dominate.
However, this season, with all its difficulties, has seen one of our own climb to the dizzy heights of Leading Owner. Step forward Jason Warner, aka Secretary and MFH of the Cotswold Vale.
Brookthorpe-based Warner took the title courtesy of 9 winners, of which 3 came via Los Alamos, trained by Luke Price. Jason trained four winners himself in between other tasks.
The leading riders and overall Leading Trainer were more predictable. Tom Ellis ran up his third national Trainers' Championship courtesy of 30 winners.
James King cemented his career path with a Leading Gentleman rider with 33 winners, and has been prominent under Rules too, whilst Gina Andrews remains pretty unassailable in the corresponding Ladies title.
Ben Sutton, son of former PPA Board member Nick Sutton, was also crowned Novice Champion Rider after a spectacular treble at Kingston Blount on Sunday to round off the season.
