It certainly has, duvets are out, horses are nice and cosy but winter is definitely here! Amazing how quickly it turns, we schooled on the grass in the first week in November on good ground, now we are not far off heavy and we are very lucky to be able to school on the all weather, which is a massive benefit in the winter months here.
We havnt had many runners recently, but there will be plenty running in the coming weeks. Byron Blue ran another cracker the other day at Lingfield, to be placed again, he is hard as nails and to be running with such credit in good, solid handicaps on a regular basis is a massive testament to him, and the team behind him, especially Jess who has a pretty stressful time riding him out every morning! As I am sure if you know him you know he is a bit of a handful, but that helps make him the little dude he is I think.
We have once again welcomed some more new owners and horses to the yard in recent weeks, firstly Desirable, owned by Mr and Mrs Eavis, owners that have enjoyed considerable success with the likes of Pastoral Pursuits & Sagramor in recent years, she has come from Hughie Morrisons where she won her maiden last winter. We are very much looking forward forward to getting her on the track in the coming weeks and we are delighted to welcome the Eavis' into the yard, fantastic owners to have.
Another new one that is due to arrive this week is Black Anthem, a very exciting Irish pointer that has untapped potential and we believe he could be very smart, he is for sale to stay in the yard and should be up to winning his bumper in the coming weeks, he is very well related and is only a 4yr old.
Something we do have at the minute is a couple that now need to find new homes away from racing, all very good, safe, sensible rides, none have any vices, all open to any vettings, all good with everything! most of them have hunted and jumped etc so please get in touch if anyone is looking for anything from a happy hack, to an eventer/hunter or ROR prospect. Open to any viewings etc. Give Daisy a call if this may interest anyone. 07975754622.
We have some very exciting news to announce in the next couple of weeks so make sure you all come back in a couple of weeks to find out what it is!!!
Many thanks for reading once again!
