As racing enthusiasts, we are always on the lookout for the latest news and updates in the world of horse racing. Today, we are excited to share with you some background information about Chris Fairhurst, a trainer who is retiring at the end of the year after three decades in the industry. Fairhurst has been making waves in the racing world lately, with several big-priced winners under his belt, including Opal Storm, who is set to run at Redcar on Tuesday bidding to follow up a 66-1 Carlisle success two weeks ago.
Opal Storm’s shock success was backed up by another Fairhurst-trained outsider Grey Force One obliging at 50-1 the following day at Newcastle. Both huge-priced winners were ridden by Aiden Brookes, who partners Opal Storm again as she attempts to follow up that breakthrough success in the Racing TV Club Day Handicap (3.00). We can’t wait to see how this exciting race unfolds and whether Fairhurst can add another win to his impressive record.
