Signature Car Hire Proudly Sponsers Doncaster Race!
It was the 7th and final race of the day and was at 3.55pm on 12th January 2011. The day was the first of 34 racedays for 2011. The name of the race was the Signature Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race featuring horses aged 4, 5 & 6. The race was a National Hunt Flat Race, often referred to as a bumper which is a flat race for young horses that, it is presumed, will go jumping in time. Only debutantes or horses that have run in this type of race, its Irish equivalent or French AQPS Flat races, are qualified to run. If they have run in official flat races or have turned out in hurdle races or steeplechases (except for point-to-points), they are barred from entry. This particular contest is run over two miles and half a furlong.
There were 11 runners and the winner was number 5 – Knockalongi and the jockey was A P Mcoy who won the Grand National in 2010 and was voted Sports Personality of the Year 2010. Aron and Bekkie proudly presented the trophy on Signatures behalf, pictured here with the winning jockey.
