Tweed Valley Racing

This syndicate was formed in August 2017 by 17 friends who all had connections with Simpsons Malt at the Tweed Valley Maltings, Berwick Upon Tweed. We had a year of paying our subs in order to build up our bank balance and before we leased our first two horses, Johnny Pedlar and MyMilan. 

We decided to work with Susan Corbett after seeing Les’s Legacy won best turned and run in a race sponsored by Simpsons Malt at Kelso in October 2021. We were delighted when Susan offered us a 50% share in the horse. We formed a partnership as well as a friendship in May 2022 and were delighted when Les’s Legacy won for us only four days after the deal was struck!

After three wins, with one being a prestigious ‘Go North’ final at Kelso in March, two seconds and a third out of his six runs, we could not be happier – and have invested in ‘Max’ whom we have named Ivan’s Legacy, a 2021 gelding. He is Les’s Legacy sibling also out of Morning with Ivan.

We are grateful to our club sponsors  ‘Simpsons Malt’ and Douglas of Duns.

Les’s Legacy is a legacy left by the late Les Richards.

Les’s Legacy came 2nd at Newcastle before The Tweed Valley Racing Club bought him just in time to see his first win at Hexham in May by 2 ¾ lengths.

He has never been out of the prize money with three wins and six places including the series final of the BetVictor Go North Handicap Hurdle.
