Ruth Jefferson Racing Club

Cyrus Keep

Cyrus Keep, a nine-year-old gelding by Doyen ex Overbranch, is one of two horses 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 he has ran some really nice races over hurdles and won one last year at Hexham. He has had a hobday during a winter break along with his  pallet fired. He has been freshened up by a winter holiday and will be running through the summer months this year.

Mauritian Bolt is a nice type who has ran well without winning. He does not go right handed but is fairly versatile regarding the geography of summer tracks. He prefers good going and will appreciate a step up in trip to three miles. He will stay over hurdles for now but he may jump fences on a smaller track.

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
