We have enjoyed a fabulous season having some exceptional two year olds in the yard this year allowing us to compete and the highest level, high lights being the 1-2 in the Prix Morny with Unfortunately & Havana Grey and Laurens in the Group 1 Fillies Mile at Newmarket and seeing Quiet Reflection come back to winning ways when taking the Group 3 at Naas making it a group double on the day after Ellthea won the two year old Group 3 at the same meeting. We have a small team of all weather horses to keep going through the winter months, a few horses nominated for Dubai and a large amount of yearlings coming in for breaking that keep the dream alive that next season could be even better!
 
We had a few winners in the last week of the turf season with TEOMARIA winning at Nottingham under a strong ride from Clifford Lee who never gave up and got the filly up to win by a nose. Clifford also rode CHAMPAGNE PINK to her first victory at Wolverhampton for owners Nick Bradley Racing.


BLUE HARMONY sprung a surprise with a 66-1 win under Ben Curtis who gets a very good tune out of our two year olds, the daughter of Bahamian Bounty stepped up to 7 furlongs dug deep and won gamely in the end. 

 
GUVENOR'S CHOICE got his head in front after some close defeats on turf in the summer, he has had a little break and came back to win decisively on the all weather.

FOUR KINGDOMS breaks his maiden when winning by eight lengths up in trip given a positive ride by Joey Haynes. He has been a late developing horse who has taken time to mature and get the hang of things but he did it decisively at Yarmouth and we are hoping he can step up on this.
TAHOO got her head back in front for the second time this year making all at Nottingham under the excellent Ben Curtis to win by a head. She now heads to the horses in training sale at Tattersalls next week.
 
EMERALD ROCKET another who will head to the sales made it two wins on the all weather also ridden by Ben Curtis, the son of Society Rock has been a slow learner but now he has the hang of things there has been no stopping him.



 
MADE OF HONOUR was back to winning ways at Saint Cloud in France under Tony Piccone who has an excellent strike rate for us in France. She won the claimer with a first time visor on.
 
MIDSUMMER KNIGHT having his first run since joining us was only just denied in a strong maiden at YORK we are very pleased to have the support of owner Khalifa Dasmal and hope to get his head in front very soon.
