Ruth Jefferson Racing Club

Cyrus Keep

Cyrus Keep, a six-year-old gelding by Doyen ex Overbranch, will be running in the colours of our Racing Club.  His dam Overbranch won seven races and is related to three other winners – not bad when you consider there were only 5 that raced. Her mother (the Granddam) Annabranch won 10 races and overall the family have a good winner to runner strike rate.

Cyrus Keep was not a bumper horse but ran a great race at Newcastle on better ground on his second hurdle run. We were gearing up for another race when we were brought to a holt by Covid-19. He is now back in training and will be ready to go in September.

Joe Jefferson will be our Racing Club manager and is the point of contact for anyone interested in joining. He can be contacted by phone  on 07890 595631 or email

We are currently finalising payment methods but are accepting cheques until the finer details are completed.
