All Our Yesterdays.
lA remarkable twist to the three-mile hurdle at Newton Abbot on September 4 as Mac's Birthday is confirmed the winner of the race in which he finished first-but was then disqualified from. The race was awarded to Double Crown (Gerald Cotrell/Len Lungo) but the gelding's owner was not officially registered at the time, so he in turn is ruled out and Mac's Birthday emerges as the winner after all.
lJust up the road at Devon there is a double for 7lb claimer Paul Barton as Just Paddy (Frank Yardley) takes the seller from Flying Tudor (Arthur Jones/Peter Steel) and Hit Parade (Gay Kiddersley) outruns Post Early (Les Kennard/Richard Smith) in the handicap hurdle.
