Editor's Viewpoint: Jimmy's winner
One Nesbitt who is already a winner is actor Jimmy. The horse he partly owns, Riverside Theatre won a feature race at Cheltenham, after a pulsating finish as dramatic as any of the roles played by its owner.
To have a horse good enough to run at this meeting, never mind win, is the dream of every owner and Nesbitt has enjoyed remarkable good fortune with this horse picking up a number of valuable prizes.
Apart from the owner, Northern Ireland can claim another stake in the winner. Its name is the same as the theatre in Coleraine where Nesbitt learned some of his craft. It is always nice when someone successful from the province remembers where they come from.
