Alex Ferguson rides a winner at Beverley

Updated: September 24, 2013

Mr Alex Ferguson not Sir Alex Ferguson rode Haymarket to win the 5:10pm at Bererley.

Amateur jockey Ferguson was riding his third winner under rules on the Michael Bell trained four-year-old Haymarket.

The winner was well fancied and went off  5/2 favourite, he was held up in third for most of the race before moving up the rails to claim victory over Valentine’s Gift (7/1) &  Yourholidayisover (9/2).

Hopefully many Manchester United fans backed the winner after the torturous weekend they suffered with their side losing the derby 4-1 to Manchester City.
