SALISBURY Racecourse hosted the ever popular Spire FM Back on the Track: The best of the 80s and 90s race night on Saturday with the race card being fully sponsored by Comec.

The evening started with success for Salisbury regular, Richard Hannon, who saddled Well Done Fox & Embour to land the Tabby Grove Birthday EBF Novice Stakes & Cisco & Comec Maiden Stakes respectively. Both winners were ridden by Sean Levey who joined Hannon in leaving Netherhampton with a double.

The feature Comec Voice & Data Handicap was won in determined fashion by Richard Hughes’ Stanley under a strong ride from Shane Kelly. Stanley & long-time leader, Mark Hopkins, pulled clear of the remaining runners over a furlong from home and became embroiled in a gritty battle for the honours, it was Kelly’s mount that dug in deepest to land the prize.

Earlier on the card Geoffrey Deacon and Trevor Whelan combined to land the Avaya And Comec Handicap with 25/1 shot Picket Line in a tight finish before Hughie Morrison’s Pippin landed the Scansource Handicap under Liam Keniry.

The card was closed with Jack Regan’s win in the Comec 25th Anniversary Classified Stakes under Fran Berry for the in-form Ian Williams.

Following the action on the track, attention turned to the dance floor as Spire FM’s Martin Starke played 2 hours of 80s and 90s hits sending racegoers into raptures for what was the biggest party in Salisbury!

Salisbury race again on Tuesday June 12.
