Race 3 of the 2020 Eric Smith Handcap Trophy took place at the New Inn, Eccup, a 4 mile mixture of road, muddy farm fields and forest tracks. Tom Hannah and Bob Payne set off first and Tom held on for the win by about 30 seconds or so, his 2nd win of the year already!. Paul Clifford was second, Matt Chadwick chased down most of the field to finish 3rd. Ian recorded the fastest time of the day in 9th. Tony came back battered and bruised from a fall in the mud, hopefully not too much damage.
April sees the start of the training night handicaps on Tues. 28th with the Fewston Handicap.
Another note for your diary the May race is the popular Danefield handicap, followed by, (to be confirmed), a BBQ at the cricket club on Thurs. 14th May.
