No and no are the answers to the last two posts.

This ain't difficult and, if I give any more clues, may as well give the answer!

By:

When: 05 Nov 10 22:28
She certainly was. Married to Anthony Robinson who tragically died early. Her daughter Immi (possibly the right spelling) rides in point-to-points.

More news tomorrow, and I'm hoping to agree something with BF, but www.nhchase.co.uk may be worth a look.

Q22. Who was the last horse to make his racecourse debut at the NH Meeting, having not raced under any code of racing, not even point-to-points?
By:
wizardofoz
When: 06 Nov 10 19:35
Clue. It was after 1990.
By:
ribellaro
When: 06 Nov 10 21:34
Was it Wixoe Wonder?
By:
wizardofoz
When: 07 Nov 10 18:29
Wixoe Wonder made his racecourse dubut in the 1995 Supreme Novices.

Well done, ribellaro, stetching away in front.

I could ask 'Who was the last horse to WIN a race at the NH Meeting on his racecourse debut?', but you'd probably need my book to give the answer.

By:

Unlucky, Patsy. Turnium started at 500/1 twice, but only ran twice at the NH Meeting.

Impertain is the one I first thought of so:
