SIS 2016 Marathon Performer of the Year

With only two Category One competitions, the Ladbrokes Golden Jacket at Crayford and the Colossus Bets TV Trophy at Towcester, points are thin on the ground in the marathon division, as evidenced by the fact that the top scorer Patchys Kerry has only 66 points after winning the Golden Jacket unbeaten and landing a trial stakes for the competition. Those four races were the only eight bend contests she took part in and her victory in the Sheffield Three Steps to Victory counts towards her stayers points total, which was 65.

The TV Trophy was won by Borna Mindy, who won just three races over the marathon trip, with a points total of 65. As well as winning the semi-final and final of the TV Trophy, the Diane Henry trained stayer also won a minor Open race over eight bends at Sheffield. Borna Mindy actually won twelve races in 2016, but nine of them were over six bends.

Although she only scored 35 points, finishing fifth in the table, Roxholme Magic won seven marathon races and was only beaten once. Hayley Keightly’s bitch set four track records at three tracks in 2016, which is probably why the GWA shortlisted her ahead of Ribble Atom and Dashing Star, both of whom finished above her in the table.
