A FORMER Royal Ascot-winning racehorse that had amassed prize winnings totalling more than £260,000 during a successful career, sadly could not be saved after being injured half-way into a race at Beverley this week. Reshoun, a nine-year-old gelding, was having his 45th start in a two-mile handicap event when he got into difficulty and pulled up. 

Beverley racecourse said: “Very sad to report that despite immediate veterinary attention by our expert team of vets, we were unable to save Reshoun. Condolences to all connections of this wonderful horse.”

Reshoun ran at Royal Ascot three times, enjoying his greatest moment in 2021 when he won the Ascot Stakes by a short head at odds of 66-1. He returned the following year to run twice, finishing fifth in the Ascot Stakes and second in the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

DOCTORS, nurses and other NHS staff donned their trainers to take part in the Hull Run For All, raising £6,500 for Hull hospitals’ charity WISHH. The staff from Hull Royal and Castle Hill hospitals were raising money for various efforts, including the charity’s Space to Grow Appeal supporting the Hull Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

BEVERLEY Fire Station has announced its annual open day will take place on Saturday August 12 from 11am to 4pm with displays, game stalls and food and drink. Police and ambulance service colleagues will also be in attendance.
