Congratulations to Warrington Branch, the 2017 winners of the Vivienne Hilary Cup. The branch were deserving winners and their musical ride to the soundtrack from Beauty and the Beast was brilliant. Louth Hunt Branch followed in second place with Laois Hunt Branch in third.

What better way to end the 2017 RACE Jockey Skills Training programme. Well done to Robbie and Brandon.
