Horse Racing: Magnificent seven for Market Rasen jockey Duran Fentiman
MARKET Rasen flat jockey Duran Fentiman had his seventh winner this season when he steered Liberty Island home before a sell-out 9,000 Scottish Ladies, Day crowd at Musselburgh.
The win for the 4-1 shot came in a nine-horse race. The jockey got his charge up by a length to give trainer Ian Semple something to smile about.
Liberty Island was ridden by Fentiman in the colours of Highland Racing, and took division one of the Jenners and Frasers Handicap for Strathaven trainer Ian Semple.
This was only the horse's second run for the Scottish trainer since being brought over from Ireland.

After his best ever turf season last year, the former De Aston School student has had mixed fortunes since the 2012 season opened in late March at Doncaster.
Fentiman also had a third on the Musselbugh card on the 28-1 shot Stags Leap, trained by Dianne Sayer, who has had winners at two recent jump meetings at Market Rasen.
Fentiman is the second stable jockey behind David Allen at the prestigious Tim Easterby Habton Grange stables at Malton, North Yorkshire.
He was initially an apprentice jockey with the yard and, in 2009, he became a senior jockey after riding more than 95 winners.
Fentiman rode 37 winners in 2011.
Tim Easterby is enjoying his best season for many a year, and Fentiman played a significant part in that when he completed a 36-1 double at Redcar ten days ago with Cheers For Thea and Malcheek, both trained by Easterby and ridden to great effect by Fentiman.
Cheers For Thea, respected as a very game mare, gained the seventh success of her career.
She clearly goes well for Fentiman, in fact the last three times he has ridden her, she has won.
Malcheek, a long time stalwart of Easterby's stables, also produced the goods in style to complete a memorable afternoon for the Habton Grange team, and Fentiman in particular.
