Global Art and Sophie Smith take the Amateur Jockeys' Cambridgeshire at HQ

Mon 20 September 2021

National Racehorse week was highlighted for the team here at La Grange Stables by a brilliant victory for GLOBAL ART in the Amateur Jockeys’ Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket on Saturday.

Following a steady start, jockey, Sophie Smith, settled Global Art at the rear of the thirteen runner field. With a strong set pace and a drop back in trip, the pair sat patiently until they were two furlongs from home. Then the gaps began to appear and Smith guided the son of Dutch Art through the field, hitting the front inside the final furlong before running on to win by a length.

Smith has previously ridden Global Art in this race back in 2019, where they finished a very creditable third. It was great to see the pair better their efforts at the Rowley Mile this weekend.

Congratulations to all involved, especially his owner, Mr Paul Turner, and Mrs Dunlop who rides ‘Globie’ every day.
