Gordon Elliott, the most successful trainer in history at Perth Racecourse, is closing down on an incredible milestone at Britain’s most northerly venue.

 

Since opening his account with a licence with Richard Johnson-ridden Arresting in June 2006, the Co Meath handler has gone on to saddle 195 winners at the Scone track and he has three runners declared for Saturday’s card.

 

Elliott is double handed in the opening Perth Supports Racing With Pride Maiden Hurdle with Copperwell and Keepthefaithinme while Herman Clermont is in the 3.27pm Handicap Chase.

 

Eight runners have been declared for the afternoon’s feature, the £25,000 racingtv.com/freetrial Kilmany Handicap Chase (For The Kilmany Cup) over nearly three miles.

 

The line-up includes last month’s Kelso scorer Exit To Where, trained by Iain Jardine, who said: “I was pleased for his owner Ray Anderson Green and he was only doing enough last time. He’s gone up 3lbs, but he should run well again.”

 

Hereditary Rule, trained in Ireland by John McConnell, actually beat Exit To Where into second place at Ayr last time, while Carluke permit-holder Andrew Hamilton is represented by his recent 33-1 Cartmel winner All About Joe.

 

Matthew Taylor, Perth Racecourse Racing Manager, said: “The course is in great condition for our June Saturday meeting. The going is currently Good, with light rain forecast most of Friday morning. We have some great racing in prospect and all the team at Perth are excited for another action-packed day.”
