A worthwhile hobby

The pacer Delightful Jay became the fifth winner bred by Brian Anderton from Jay’s Glen when she was successful at Forbury Park last Thursday (9/3/2017).

Delightful Jay, a 4yr-old mare by Bettor’s Delight was having her second start when she overcame a second line draw in the hands of leading reinsman Dexter Dunn. Anderton races her with the estate of Bryan Kennedy, the co-breeder. She is trained by Graeme Anderson at Westwood. Delightful Jay is in foal to Washington VC from a mating on December 16. She is permitted to race through until the middle of April in her present campaign.
