80/1 Shock Winner At Market Rasen Breaks Trainers Losing Run

A remarkable story came out of Market Rasen Yesterday in the second last race of the day with an 80/1 shot going on to win. This being strange enough but the story that has built around this horse is something worth noting and adds to the excitement of the victory.

L'Es Fremantle had gone 55 races since its debut all the way to before yesterdays race without a win, this winless streak in total had lasted a total of 1,944 days and this was the same for the trainer Michael Chapman who hadn't had a win for over 2 and a half years, but this unforgettable moment for the stable will be remembered forever.

This seven year old is most well known for his unmistakable white face that is very unique to see on a horse. He is the light of his trainers life and was only bought by his owner who is also his trainer for £600.

Another strange thing to come out of the race was the betting that took place in the race on the exchange with L'Es Fremantle trading at a high of 450/1 at one point in the race before putting the afterburners on to fly home under a top ride by Rachael McDonald in the last 100 yards.

The leader for all but most of the race was Follow The Swallow who just before the line was in racing at the minimum odds possible of 1.01 and was matched in play with a bet of £3,000.

The trainer of the long awaited winner, Michael Chapman has his yard just around the corner from the racecourse and couldn't have been more proud of his horse.

(Credit Racing Post) The 80 year old said: "He jumped brilliantly and coming to the last I thought he was going to be a fine third, then he sprinted like a gazelle at the end.

"We're over the moon as he only cost £600 and my wife Mary owns him. He likes it here; he was third at 100-1 back in June. He's a poor traveller but he only has to cross the road, so he doesn't have time to get a sweat on.

"We've been on the cold list for too long but we have had lots of places."
