Racing news Drowne just happy to be back

Drowne just happy to be back6th March 2013

Steve Drowne was delighted just to be back in the saddle after a year-long battle when finishing fourth on Douglas Pasha at Lingfield.

The vastly-experienced Flat jockey had a low-key return for trainer Richard Hannon in the Play Golf At Lingfield Park Resort Maiden Stakes.

Drowne suffered a blackout at home last March and succeeded in his fight to ride again, although despite being given the all-clear by a specialist he had a struggle to get his driving licence back from the DVLA.
