WE'LL SHAKE HANDS makes it two wins for the season...
Tue, July 14, 2015
WE'LL SHAKE HANDS makes it two wins for the season when stepped upto One Mile 2 furlongs at Newcastle ridden by Ben Curtis.

KATIE'S DIAMOND makes it two wins from two starts in first time colours of Qatar racing who purchased her with one of our owners Barbara Keller. We were delighted for her to win being our first horse for them and an exciting prospect for the future. She now heads to France.

ODELIZ gets her head infront in Hamburg after finishing in the places for the majority of the season. She really deserved her Group win and Owner Barbara Keller was delighted to see her get her head infront on her first trip to Germany. She may well now go to France in August.

LORD BEN STACK the huge son of Dylan Thomas was unlucky not to get his head back infront at Haydock under Graham Lee when being touched off by a neck after being denied a clear run in the final furlong. He is a horse with plenty of potential and should keep improving with time. Graham Lee was very impressed by him and were hoping to see him come on nicely from that run.

JAYKAY makes it two wins in a week both times at Ayr and both ridden by Joey Haynes who rode out his claim on his second win on him. He thrives at this time of year and enjoys the front running tactics that saw him score easily. He will now go with a penalty and head to Hamilton.

DALMARELLA DANCER was narrowly denied a double back at Windsor when going down by a nose in a photo finish. She has ran well both times at Windsor under yard apprentice Jordan Vaughan and may head back there next week.

YOURE FIRED ran another solid race when finishing third coming through the pack late on under Graham Lee at York. He prefers a little more give under foot but put up a genuine gutsy performance.
MOONDYNE JOE makes a winning debut
Thu, June 25, 2015
MOONDYNE JOE makes a winning debut under Ben Curtis at Carlisle in the two year old sprint. The good looking son of Bushranger hung on gamely and should come on for the run.

The always consistent TRIXIE MALONE finished in the money again finishing in second place at Carlise, she is a super tough filly and always tries her heart out!

DALMARELLA DANCER put her best foot forward when gaining her second career win at Windsor under a good ride from stable apprentice Jordan Vaughan. She has been frustrating since her three year old win but we are delighted to see her back in front.

LITTLE LADY KATIE won the feature handicap at Ayr only to be disqualified and placed into second position after drifting over on the second. It was a great shame for all connections involved but she has defiantly trained on at three and were hoping she can gain another win again soon.

BARBAROUS RELIC won at Ayr on his second career start under Ben Curtis, upped to six furlongs made all the difference and the son of American sire Scat Daddy should keep improving.

MILLENIUM FALCON finished third in the conditions race at Chelmsford where she didn't handle the sharp bend and they broke the track record.

KELLY'S DINO was another two year old to make a winning debut at Carlisle even after making hard work of it being left 8 lengths coming out of the stalls and coming wide round his rivals. He should come on a lot for the run like most of our two year olds and is bred for further.

KATIE'S DIAMOND an imposing daughter of first season sire Turtle Bowl confirmed what we had hoped and won comfortably first time out in a maiden at Redcar. Impressive enough to attract plenty of offers in from both the UK and over seas. She has now been purchased by QATAR RACING and Mrs Barbara Keller who already has two in training with us. We are extremely pleased to be training for Sheikh Fahad and his team and we hope to have plenty of success in the future for them.

YEEOOW got his head back infront when he got up close home at Pontefract in the sprint handicap under Martin Harley, he is a horse that loves a stiff finish and relished the good ground.
ARCAMENTE finally broke his maiden at Catterick under a well judged ride from Micheal Stainton, he has been knocking on the door in several runs and the ground has usually gone against him. The win should give him some confidence and were hoping he can progress on from that. As a stayer he may give hurdling a try.
LONDON PROTOCOL ran another respectable race second time out at Hamilton although he was still very coltish in preliminaries and has subsequently been gelded this should really help him concentrate and fulfil his potential he has shown us at home.
ODELIZ always seems to run a solid race in defeat and once again she managed to get herself into the placing where she finished 3rd in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes (Group 3) at Epsom on Oaks day.
RITA'S BOY ran another fine race in defeat finishing 2nd..
Tue, May 19, 2015
RITA'S BOY ran another fine race in defeat finishing second once again in a competitive event at Chester, he is a consistent horse who is always thereabouts on the softer ground.

TRIXIE MALONE won her sixth race of her career in great fashion making all of the running and drawing clear in the final furlong. She is an ultraa tough filly who always tries her heart out.

YOU'RE FIRED took a step up into Listed company at the York Dante festival and was only denied by a head to make it back to back wins, he had a little trouble in running but stuck to his guns and ran well in defeat.

ODELIZ again ran a good race to finish fourth in the Group 2 mares race at York, she travelled very well throughout and bringing her back a furlong will probably suit her better.

DRESSED IN FUR broke her maiden at the third time of asking as she battled hard under a strong ride from Ben Curtis to win on the rain softened ground at Hamilton, she should come on for stepping up in trip.

LONDON PROTOCOL a French bred son of Muhtathir made his debut at Redcar after being full of himself in the preliminaries and giving Ben Curtis a hairy ride to post he ran green but ran on well in the closing stages to take third. He is sure to come on for the run and should do better in the future.

Kind Regards
