The last time I updated we had just had Follow The Tracks win very impressively at Taunton a few days earlier, he was all set to run at Exeter the following week with a penalty, due to be sent off favourite again, he arrived at the races in good form but developed a touch of colic and the desicion was taken not to run, by the time he arrived home again he was fine and after an easy day or two he was back in full work and back flying again. He is a massive yard favourite and has improved a lot since his win, although being raised a massive 13lb we think he can defy that and keep improving, fingers crossed he heads to Taunton over C & D on Thursday.
Green Du Ciel ran again at Taunton last week and after a very patient ride from Denis O Regan he finished a very gallant second to a bang in form rival, beaten only a length. He is getting closer and closer and he is a real tough old horse that we would love to see win, he also heads to Taunton on Thursday, this time Daryl Jacob takes the ride.
Madam Be has a couple of entries this week, she is flying at home and looks great but she really needs good or quicker ground so we are hoping the rain over the next day or two doesnt materialise into much. She will be a cracking filly to run through the summer, and we cant wait to send her over fences, her jumping is fantastic.
Shanandoa will hopefully run at Wincanton on Wednesday, in what looks an ultra competitive newcomers bumper with all the top yards represented. She looks amazing in her coat, and is ready to run, she will improve for the run but we look forward to seeing her.
We had an overnight trip to Southwell last week with two debutants for the yard. Robero in the maiden and Ballyheigue in the amateur race. Robero had been working well at home and showing plenty of speed, he started over 7f to give him a nice introduction into racing. This was our first runner in a maiden on the level and what a race he ran, sent off 20-1, under a fine ride from Eddy Greatrex he stormed up the straight to finish a close third, beaten only 3 lengths, and 11 lengths clear of the 4th. Eddy loved him and thinks he has a massive future which is brilliant. His time was very impressive compared to the 0-105 handicap on the same card, over the same trip. Ballyheigue also ran a cracker, after being off the track for over 7 months he gave Hattie Heal a great spin and finished 3rd, I am sure he will be winning soon enough. Very happy with both of these horses and they have both come out their races well. Robero heads to Lingfield next week and Ballyheigue goes to Kempton the week after.
Under Review is starting to show us all the right signs so we cannot wait for him to run, he heads to Wolverhampton next week.
Martys Magic is now cantering away nicely, along with Norfolk Sky.
We have taken down another barn and we have some ground work to do then we will be putting up a brand new, purpose built 20 box barn, that we can hopefully fill soon enough!
Everything is really starting to take shape around here now, if you would like to come and see us and have a look at what horses we have for sale or would be interested in bringing us a horse then dont hesitate to contact us. We will be attending Ascot breeze up sale on Wednesday too.
All the best and thanks for reading!!
