A jockey who enjoyed his best ever year in 2017 continues in great form on the All-Weather, while three Fast Track Qualifiers for Good Friday’s £1 million Finals Day will take place within the next few days.
McDONALD STILL FARMING THE WINNERS
Last year was a memorable one for jockey PJ McDONALD, who achieved over a century of winners including a first ever Group One success on Fillies’ Mile heroine Laurens. He has continued his good form into 2018 with a string of winners on the All-Weather including a feature handicap success on Zaeem at Southwell.
