Potterman wins Gold Cup

Created on 25/04/2021 @ 22:10

A Welshpool owned horse won the Sandown Gold Cup as controversy engulfed the £115,000 race.

Champion jockey Harry Skelton, riding Enrilo was first over the line but was deemed to have caused sufficient interference to Kitty's Light on the action-packed run-in and was relegated to third place after a steward’s enquiry.

The decision handed the race and £65,000 to Potterman, owned by James and Jean Potter, trained by Alan King and ridden by Tom Cannon.

The result of the steward's enquiry meant Kitty's Light - the 9-1 shot ridden by Jack Tudor - was promoted to second, and 7-2 Enrilo given third.

Potterman, a 12-1 chance at the off was not involved in the fracas around 100 yards from the post. He finished to the right of the Paul Nicholls-trained Enrilo and Kitty's Light, but ended up the biggest winner of all.

ITV footage was forced to cut short a dramatic steward's room enquiry between the jockeys involved. But around 25 minutes after the race actually finished, the winner was finally declared, with those who backed Potterman unable to believe their luck.
