RISING BREEZE equipped with a hood for the first time settled out the back and came through the pack under a beautifully timed ride by Joey Haynes to win by 3 Lengths. He is a horse who has plenty of ability but just needs to keep relaxed in preliminaries and the early parts of the race in order to show his full potential.

EXPLOSIVE LADY then made it a quick double by bolting up in the following race under a hands and heels ride from Ben Curtis to win comfortably by 4 Lengths. She is a lovely big filly who showed a great attitude to win first time out.

MILLAR ROSE made it win number 15 for the Ontoawinner syndicate this year when she took the two year old claiming stakes at Catterick ridden by Ben Curtis.

TRUANCY seemed to relish front running tactics as he made it his second win when ridden from the front under Joey Haynes at Epsom, he won nicely by a couple of lengths looking like he still had more in hand.

TICKING KATIE got her head in front just in time right on the line to make it a first win at York for her local owners at Ontoawinner Syndicate. They were defiantly a happy bunch and plenty of them were there to welcome her back in to the winners enclosure.

YOURE FIRED showed his amazing turn of foot at Newmarket on Saturday only to get narrowly denied by a Godoplphin horse who was first time gelded and first time visored. Youre Fired looked to be rolling around slightly unbalanced at the start of the race but when he met the rising ground took of from the back to finish fast, he is a lovely colt who we think can keep progressing.

NATURAL ORDER having his first run in Group company at Newmarket finished a respectable fourth place.

FELIX LEITER was making his debut at Hamilton and after being a bit green in the preliminaries and in the early stages of the race ran on strongly only to be denied by a neck, he should defiantly come on for the race.

Double at Nottingham!
Wed, July 2, 2014
Double at Nottingham courtesy of BETTY BERE & FRONTLINE PHANTOM!

BETTY BERE is a lovely big filly by Japanese sire Peer Gynt it was only her second outing and after getting very restless in the stalls and making her own running which wasn't ideal she still stuck to her task to win under a strong ride from Martin Harley. FRONTLINE PHANTOM who had two seasons off due to injury didn't need to battle very hard to win the one mile 2furlong handicap under Joey Haynes, he then ran the next day at Hamilton under another of our apprentices Pete Sword to finish second so he's defiantly making up for lost time.

ARTHUR MARTIN LEAKE named after a war veteran finished third after blowing the start and running on strongly late on in the race, he then went to Windsor the following week and finished second to what looked like a very useful horse of Clive Cox's.

BOLD PREDICTION a model of consistency finished in the placings again in the feature handicap at Ripon under Joey Haynes.

DANCING JUICE made a promising debut with us winning under Rob J Fitzpatrick at Redcar over five furlongs. He unfortunately proceeded to get rid of his jockey after the line and gallop loose for three laps of the track however neither horse nor jockey were none the worse.

RIVELLINO ran a cracker to finish third in the Wokingham at Royal Ascot on Saturday under William Buick he was drawn in the middle of the track which wasn't ideal as most of the pace was on the stands side and he is a horse who loves to come of a strong pace but we were thrilled with his run and were sure a big win isn't to far away for him.
ODELIZ ran a blinder to finish second in the Group 2...

ODELIZ ran a blinder to finish second in the Group 2 fillies mile at Epsom on Oaks day, she split two Group 1 fillies and we are looking forward to plenty more big days with her.

CAFE CORTADO got us another two year old winner on the board when winning over seven furlongs at Yarmouth under Joey Haynes, she showed a really tough attitude to battle hard to keep her head infront.

TRUANCY got his first win on turf at Doncaster under a fabulous front running ride from Danny Tudhope.
Ronya was once again narrowly denied finishing second at Leicester in the claiming race, she has been very consistent and will hopefully get her head in front soon.

YEEOOW finished third at Doncaster, the race wasn't ran to suit him as they went steady early and he couldn't get any cover, he is a horse that is suited much better being tucked in off a fast gallop so there is still improvement in him, he is likely to head to Ireland for the big sprint on Irish Derby Day.

TICKING KATIE came back to abit of form when finishing third in a very competitive three year old race at Sandown, she was a very nice two year old so were hoping she can get back to winning ways.

The super consistent mare TRIXIE MALONE may be blind in 1 eye...
Thu, June 5, 2014
The super consistent mare TRIXIE MALONE may be blind in one eye but it really doesn't stop her from battling hard! She has won her first three outings this year and then went on to be a close second at Leicester under her usual rider Joey Haynes.

ISHIKAWA is becoming one of the yard favorites and is defiantly apprentice jockey Robbie Fitzpatrick's as they teamed up again to win at Sandown they make a good partnership and have gone from strength to strength together.

YOU'RE FIRED a new recruit made a winning start at Haydock, this lovely looking son of Firebreak did amazingly well to win after getting trapped in on the rail and then hampered only to get a clear run to victory in the closing furlong, there looks to be much more to come from him.

BOLD PREDICTION has been unlucky not to have won his last three races having being beat fractions his latest at Ripon having made all the running only to be denied on the line.

WE'LL SHAKE HANDS led from pillar to post at Carlisle under an inspiring ride by Danny Tudhope to win for the first time this season, the second in his career.

NATURAL ORDER finished third in a very competitive Novice stakes, the ground dried out which was against him but we were happy with his performance and think there is more to come from him.

FRONTLINE PHANTOM ran well in defeat in third place at Yarmouth ridden by Peter Sword who was having his first ride for us and his first ride in two years on a racetrack.
