HELEN SHERBET was given a tremendous ride

HELEN SHERBET was given a tremendous ride by Jockey Ben Curtis who never gave up and drove out the filly to her first victory at Southwell to give owners Stephen Lock and Jeff Craft there first winner. Stephen bred the daughter of Makfi so we were delighted to get a first win under her belt. She is a tough filly who should keep on improving.
CHAMPAGNE PINK won her second race in less than two weeks as she won the handicap under Clifford Lee at Wolverhampton. The track seems to suit her well there and she will continue to be campaigned on the all weather before maybe heading out to France as she is qualified for the french premiums.
All at Spigot lodge were very sad to loose one of the oldest members of the team in Yeeoow who sadly had to be put to rest after breaking a front leg at Lingfield. We have had Yeeoow since a yearling and he has been part of the furniture here winning 6 times and placed in 18 races. Its never easy to loose a horse and is defiantly the hardest part about working with animals.
