Life After Racing: Tilly Tinker

Posted by MWE: 11.10 AM Tuesday 20 July 2021

A stunning chestnut filly by Doncaster Rover, Tilly Tinker was purchased from Doncaster Sales to run on the flat.

Tilly ran five times, recording one 3rd placed effort, before being retired from racing at the end of 2017 after finishing down the field at Newcastle.

Tilly was memorable for her lovely nature but also for the white marking on her side which is relatively unusual.

Tilly Tinker was rehomed by Alice Burnside, a friend of the horses’ former owner Jason McIvor, of McIvors Equestrian, Agricultural & Pet Supplies, a face we know well as they supply our feed!

Tilly has thrived out of racing. A much loved member of the family she enjoys dressage and jumping and is an excellent riding horse, going to riding club every week.

Of her pride and joy, Alice says "Her little spot is just my favourite! I say it makes her a coloured and we skip all the chestnut mare business".

"She's a perfect all rounder and I couldn't ask for more!"
