FIVE FROM SEVEN ON A SUPER SATURDAY!
Mon, Apr 28, 2014
All at Spigot Lodge were delighted with our first ever five timer! Having sent seven runners out for the day we were hoping for a winner or two but to get five was brilliant and a tremendous effort from all the team.

YOURARTISONFIRE started the ball rolling winning the ultra competitive class 2 handicap at Haydock under Joey Haynes in good fashion. Joey then headed to Doncaster to ride TRIXIE MALONE who stuck her head out and held on gamely to win, she was up in class and showed guts when battling hard to fend off the rivals.

ELIZABETH FLYNN on her second run having previously ran well in fourth place at Ripon was sharp out of the stalls and quickly into her stride making easy work of the Wolverhampton maiden under Martin Lane, she may only be small but she has a good attitude and will now most likely head to Chester. REVE DE NUIT was the second winner at Wolverhampton with Danny Tudhope dping the steering as he strode clear with little effort to make it his first win on polytrack.

BOLD PREDICTION completed the five timer also ridden by Danny Tudhope when winning the Class 4 handicap, He is a consistent horse who has now won three times for us aswell as being placed on numerous occasions.

Good Friday as always meant Middleham's...
Wed, Apr 23, 2014
Good Friday as always meant Middleham's annual Open Day, this year the weather was good to us and the sun stayed out for the duration of the day seeing big crowds turning up to have a look around all the yards.

Good Friday also hosted the first ever race meetings as usually along with Christmas day are the only days of the year where there are no racing.

We had a couple of runners, RIVELLINO being our sole runner down at Lingfield for the big All weather finals. He had a terrible draw drawn very wide in stall 11 over only 6furlongs making it practically impossible to get a good position in the early stages. RIVELLINO raced further back than ideal and came with a rattle in the final furlong to finish third beaten under 1 length, a brilliant run but also a great shame as it could have been so different if drawn better. He is an improving horse and were hoping he can transfer his form to the Turf.

GEORGIAN BAY wearing a visor for the first time bolted up under Danny Tudhope at Kempton in impressive style, he is a horse we have always thought a lot of and being a laid back sort the Visor obviously did the trick.

EVA CLARE ran another solid race in third having never been out of the winners enclosure in all four of her starts.

ZEPHYR ran a great race in third first time out...
Thu, Apr 3, 2014
ZEPHYR ran a great race in third first time out for us at Southwell having being purchased at the October horse in training sales. We had him gelded and gave him a break which has helped him to strengthen.

ROMANTIC BLISS ran another solid race to finish second again, she has been running very well consistently being placed under our apprentice Rob J Fitzpatrick.

HOT RIGHT NOW also ridden by Rob won for the second time this all weather season, she is a game filly who seems to love the fibresand at Southwell.

YOURARTISONFIRE finished third in the Doncaster Spring Mile under Phil Makin, we were delighted with his first run this season and are looking forward to seeing what else he can do this season.
BALTIC FIRE got one step closer finishing second this time at Kempton under Joey Haynes, he has defiantly improved over the winter and should be getting his head in front soon.
