CARLUKE-based racehorse trainer Keith Dalgleish recorded a phenomenal 70 winners during the flat season which finished this month.

Dalgleish (31), of Belstane Racing Stables, broke the all-time winners record for a Scottish-based trainer for the second straight year in races staged between November 2013 and November 2014.

Dalgleish, who joined Belstane three years ago, said: “When we got 60 winners the previous year I thought that would be hard to beat.

“We had a steady summer of winners and things have continued to pick up.

“The highlight of the year for me came when I had four winners at the same meeting in Hamilton in June. That was a personal best for me.”
