Odeliz has been an outstanding mare for us and her owner Barbara Keller, we couldn't be more proud of what she has achieved having been purchased for 22,000Euro from the Arqana yearling sales back in Autumn 2011 she has took us to Ireland, France, Germany, Italy and Canada and has been in the money on 20 of her 23 starts. She is a tough, talented mare who has given us a fantastic journey and will be sorely missed when she leaves for the paddocks. 

COLOUR ME HAPPY gets his head infront at Newmarket in the class 4 Maiden, ever the model of consistency having bumped into Foundation on his debut he has racked up some very respectable runs in defeat but he gamely stuck on to hold of the William Haggas favourite Wave Reviews. Jockey Danny Tudhope was very bullish about his performance and you couldn't knock his great attitude. He will now head to Tattersalls horse in training sale.

SOUTHERN GAILES ran on strongly stepped upto a mile on his second start at Kempton to win under Dougie Costello, he is a very professional horse who has impressed on both runs and we were delighted to get a winner for all his owners.

MALLYMKUN finally got rid of her maiden tag after being placed on numerous occasions to the delight of her owner Ray Bailey who has been a tremendous support and owner here for many years.

FELIX LEITER a very tough horse who won three times last year resulting in a stiff mark to start his three year old campaign has been coming back to form towards the end of the year and narrowly got touched off at Doncaster in the apprentice handicap over seven furlongs. As with most successful sprinting two year olds there three year old campaign can be a bit scratchy but we are looking forward to next year with him

QUIET REFLECTION breezed clear of her rivals in the Group 3 Cornwallis which will be her final start of 2015. She is a high class filly with plenty of speed and a tremendous attitude. We are confident she will stay six furlongs next year and are excited for next season with her.

YOURE FIRED got a well deserved second win for the season under a confident ride from Dougie Costello to win at York in the class 2 handicap. His dam won numerous times at Southwell so we might give him a try there and then head for big handicaps next year with him.

SKINNY LOVE the ever consistent mare won her fifth race of the season for us under usual rider Joey Haynes at Kempton, she will now try her luck in a Listed contest before heading to be a brood mare. She has been a great claim for her owner Tim Dykes.

EXPLOSIVE POWER won on his third attempt in a maiden at Redcar drawing clear nicely under Joey Haynes he has been a little late to come to himself but looks like he will make a nice three year old he may have another run before the end of the season.

PERCY STREET scores by 6 lengths to break his maiden on his second racecourse outing under Dougie Costello. The good looking son of Sir Percy ran green first time out but put that experience behind him and was very professional, he now looks likely to go back to Pontefract for a Listed event there at the end of the month.

WHOLESOME was unlucky to bump into a good looking sort of Godolphins when going down by a length in a hot looking maiden at Newmarket, she is a big scopey filly who should improve through a winter break to be a nice prospect for next year.

LITTLE LOTTE ran second in a French claimer last week, we like to take advantage of the wonderful French prize money and premiums and look to have a good few runners over there in the run upto Christmas.

COLOUR ME HAPPY made is three seconds from as many starts he is a tough genuine horse who has unfortunately bumped into one too good each time. He is sure to get his head infront soon and heads off to the Newmarket horse in training sale at the end of the month.

QUIET REFLECTION storm clear in The Shadwell stud Harry Rosebery stakes Listed sprint at Ayr. She is a filly we have thought a lot of but nearly got brought down in the Lowther when badly hampered and still managed to finish fifth however she put that behind her and with her incredibly professional nature put 3 Lengths between herself and the rest of the field to win comfortably.

JAYKAY was extremely unlucky not to make it five wins in a row when denied right on the line after having been a couple lengths clear a furlong out under his usual jockey Joey Haynes. He is brilliant yard stick and always tries his heart out.

HAUGHMOND was also denied right in the final stride at Catterick under Ben Curtis were hoping to get a win out of him before he heads off to the October horse in training sale.

RIVELLINO ran another good race in defeat in the Ayr Gold Cup finishing 10th however he only got beat 2 1/2 Lengths and the pace was probably not strong enough for him.
