The Flat season at Beverley is reaching the latter stages of the calendar, so now is a good time to look back at some of the most impressive performances and achievements across the year at the East Riding of Yorkshire racecourse.

Richard Fahey

Trainer Richard Fahey is having one of the best seasons of his career and a lot of his success has come at Beverley. The venue is one of Fahey’s local courses, so he often features on the card.

Prior to the August fixtures, Fahey had already recorded six winners this year at Beverley. He is in contention to be the leading trainer along with the likes of Tim Easterby and Charlie and Mark Johnston.

One of the most exciting horses from Fahey’s yard is Perfect Power. He won the Commonwealth Cup earlier this season. The talented sprinter is 14/1 in the Paddy Power horse racing betting for the Sprint Cup at Haydock. We could see the next Perfect Power emerge from Fahey’s yard later in the campaign in one of the two-year-old races at Beverley.

Ben Curtis

Rider Ben Curtis has a lot of success at the northern courses on the Flat. He is the jockey most owners look to book to ride their horse at Beverley, due to his experience there. The 2020 All-Weather Champion Jockey is on track for his best tally at this course this year.

Curtis has shown he has the ability to become a Champion Jockey in the sport. It may not be long before he tops the standings ahead of the likes of Ryan Moore, William Buick and Oisin Murphy.

The leading jockey at Beverley this season is likely to feature in the Beverley Bullet Sprint Stakes. He has yet to prevail in the Listed contest, but it will be a race he will be hopeful of adding his name to the roll of honour board in 2022.

Star Of Lady M

The Hilary Needler Trophy is one of the big sprint races at Beverley. The 5f contest is open to two-year-old fillies and it was won in 2022 by Star Of Lady M. On what was just the fourth start of his career, David O’Meara’s runner finished the race strongly to prevail by three-quarters of a length.

Since her victory at Beverley Racecourse, the daughter of Havana Gold has scored again at Musselburgh over 5f. She has shown she has a lot of speed and that she is a filly who has a bright future on the track.


Paul Midgley’s gelding Sherdil has made two appearances at Beverley this season and he has prevailed on both occasions. As a son of Dandy Man, it is no surprise that the three-year-old sprinter has a lot of speed.

In his first outing at the course, he scored by a neck to break his maiden. Then just two weeks later, he was successful again over the C&D by a margin of four lengths. 

Sherdil is now rated at 71 in the official ratings. It would be no surprise to see him return to Beverley in near future, as he clearly enjoys himself at the right-handed course.

Beverley’s final fixture of 2022 comes on the 20th of September. Racing will then return to the Flat venue in April 2023.
