Conlon Family are Owners of the Year

The Conlon Family are the 2016 Charles Russel Speechleys Owners of the Year. The owners of Droopys Buick beat last year’s winners the KSS Syndicate by nearly 100 points.

Using the same scoring system as used for the Trainer of the Year Championship, the Conlon Family scored 435 points, compared to KSS’ 340. Top scorer was Droopys Buick with 190 points, thanks to two Category One wins; the Coral Olympic and the Betfred Eclipse. However, it was not just about Buick as Gymcrack winner Droopys Trapeze scored 97 points and Droopys Country 63.

GBGB Media and Communications Officer Simon Banks said: “This is a well deserved award to a syndicate who have invested heavily in the sport in recent years. As well as Droopys Buick, Droopys Trapeze and Droopys County, Droopys Five and Droopys Yen also picked up valuable points.”
