Jenkins: Let's talk about what makes 'our great sport tick'

08 April 2021 | Josh Jenkins

Welcome to JENKINS - a column where we’ll explore some of the lighter and more positive and enlightening aspects to our great game, the trots!

I hope to bring you some of the stories, which are perhaps not as topical but are exactly what make our great sport tick.

Lists are always fun, so keep an eye out for the top 5 young horses, the top 5 female drivers, the top 5 beaten runs of the season … discussion of that nature we all enjoy, and everything else in this busy world needs our attention.

Here’s column #1. Hope you can find five minutes to have a look each fortnight.
