Local Female Equine Vet Pips Men To A Second At Oakley Point To Point

Monday, March 27, 2017  ‹ Back To Latest News List


Northamptonshire based Equine Veterinary Surgeon, Lucinda Ticehurst, succeeded in pipping at least three male jockeys to the final post in her first ever mixed race; working her way up from the back of the field finally coming home a good second in the Members race on her own horse, West Cork Flash, at Oakley Point to Point at Brafield-on-the-Green last Saturday 19th March 2017.

Lucinda Ticehurst BSc BVMed Sci (Hons) BVM BVS MRCVS has been very busy this point-to-point season riding both her horses in a variety of point-to-points. Whilst West Cork Flash (13) is an experienced racer, both under rules and in point-to-points with several successful placings last season, the success of last Saturday’s race against experienced competition shows their strong partnership is a force to be reckoned with this season.

Lucinda who is sponsored by SyncThermology, the experts in providing clinical standard thermography to the equine and veterinary industry nationally, is a successful rider with a respected and long-standing competition career spanning multiple equestrian disciplines over a number of years.

Lucinda commenting on her success says, “I am very pleased with our achievement last Saturday. I knew I was going into a tough race given that I was carrying an extra 4st 10lb in dead weight) and up against the men, including experienced combinations, as I normally stick to the Ladies races! Flash and I worked our way up from the back consistently and steadily. As we started moving up the field and the end was in sight, it was sheer grit and determination! I couldn’t be happier that all our hard work and preparation is paying off. Thanks also to SyncThermology for supporting from the sidelines and being another pair of helpful hands!”
