Snow can’t stop St Patrick’s Day fun at Fontwell

Have your say

More than 4,000 entered and just six remain.

The News is proud to announce the lucky readers who are still in the hunt to win the all-expenses-paid golden share in Heart of the South Racing’s exciting colt.

Havant’s Doug Tibbetts is in the mix for the 1/20th share, while Fareham’s Gemma Cunningham has made it through.

The duo are joined in the final half a dozen by Chichester’s Jill Arnell, Mrs E Watts from Crawley, Eastbourne’s Brian Lakin and Mrs J Warren of Worthing.

The colt, a son of Imperial Dancer, is currently in training with former Pompey and England striker Mick Channon.

The Berkshire handler is putting the two-year-old through his paces and is thrilled with his progress.

And one of our six lucky winners is set to play a part in the youngster’s debut campaign.

Over a six-week period we have fired questions at you, with one winner drawn each week.

Each victor gets a ticket to Fontwell’s premier enclosure and betting vouchers worth £25.

Next month, they will then be invited to meet the colt at Channon’s West Ilsley headquarters, where the overall winner will be drawn.

The triumphant shareholder will then experience all the thrills and spills of racehorse ownership, from helping to name the colt and watching him train on the gallops to roaring him on at the track.

The two-year-old was broken in at Robbie Brisland’s New Barn Farm yard before moving to Channon’s in December.

Michael Channon, Mick’s son and assistant, is champing at the bit to unleash the ace this summer.

He said: ‘There’s not a kink to him. I couldn’t be a bigger fan.’
