Top Jumps Jockey Bryony Frost Produces Miraculous Recovery In Big Race At Wetherby

Bryony Frost Managed To Stay On Black Corton In Miraculous Circumstances At Wetherby In The Charlie Hall Chase
Bryony Frost Managed To Stay On Black Corton In Miraculous Circumstances At Wetherby In The Charlie Hall Chase

Few sports can match jumps racing for drama and action and it is usually the jockeys who provide the majority of the highlights during the winter.

The big race at the weekend came at Wetherby on Saturday afternoon with the Grade 2 Charlie Hall Chase taking centre stage, and there was a high moment of drama as the horses took in their first circuit.

The Paul Nicholls trained Black Corton, a Grade 1 winning novice chaser, was approaching the third fence when it appeared to be about to unseat jockey Bryony Frost thanks a messy jump.

Frost was having none of it though and managed to stay on board the 5/4F in remarkable circumstances.

The jockey was left clinging to the horses neck before managing to get her feet back in the irons, and perhaps even more incredibly, Black Corton actually recovered well to finish a strong second place in one of the key early season trials for the Cheltenham Festival.

Black Corton and Bryony Frost were one of the biggest stories of the season last winter as they went on a remarkable winning run which culminated in a Grade 1 success at Kempton on Boxing Day, before the pair teamed up again at Cheltenham to finish a respectable 5th in the RSA Chase.

This season could be another exciting one for the the 7-year-old with a possible tilt at the Cheltenham Gold Cup not above the bounds of reality but even if that doesn't materialise, the horse and jockey have already produced a stunning moment we won't be forgetting any time soon.
