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.
FAIR LOCH gave us a scare at Kempton...
Mon, Mar 24, 2014
FAIR LOCH gave us a scare at Kempton when he collapsed after the race, luckily he got up and is absolutely fine now the vet reported it was more like a faint as the weather was unusually hot for this time of year he had over done himself after running a brilliant race in second. He got a big roar from the crowd as he got back to his feet and now back home is none the worse.

EVA CLARE having only her third career run ran another cracking race to finish third after getting taken across the track which didn't help, she hasn't been out of the first three in all her runs and we hope she can continue to progress.

ODELIZ was denied her Group winning success by only a head under Danny Tudhope after battling hard to finish second in the Group 3 at the opening turf meeting at the Curragh. She is a tough filly who we have high hopes for this season.
CASCADIA has been running well this year..
Mon, Mar 17, 2014
CASCADIA has been running well this year and managed to pick up another win at Southwell under Rob Fitzpatrick she then ran five days later again at Southwell this time in a seller and was narrowly defeated and subsequently claimed. 

JAEGER TRAIN got off the mark at Southwell after running placed in his only three previous starts. He strode clear ears pricked cruising clear from the rest of the field under Danny Tudhope. We were delighted to get a winner for Sunderland FC who own him.

ISHIKAWA ran another solid race after his return from St Moritz to finish 3rd in a competitive handicap at Wolverhampton, he is off a career high mark at present.

February ends with 2 winners, 8 seconds & 5 thirds!
Sat, Mar 1, 2014
We rounded February off with two winners, eight seconds & five thirds! Out of 21 runners we only had three horses finish out of the first four unfortunately we had quite a few unlucky seconds beat in photo finishes.

RIVELLINO ran another cracking race to be beat a head in the Listed contest at Lingfield, he is an improving horse and will now head to the big meeting on Good Friday at Lingfield where we hope he can get his head back in front!

EVA CLARE made it a memorable day for her owners Mount Racing clubas she stuck on well under a positive ride from Ben Curtis to win on only her second start having finished second first time out. She didnt run as a two year old because of set backs but she proved worth the wait and her patient owners were rewarded.

STEPPING AHEAD ran another solid race in defeat he hasnt been able to get his way infront in his two all weather runs but has still battled on were looking forward to a turf campaign with him this season.

ISHIKAWA coming back from his trip to St Moritz was just collared on the line and beaten a head under a good ride from our apprentice Rob Fitzpatrick. Unfortunately the trip to St Moritz didn't prove successful as the racing was called off two out of three times as the track was unsuitable but Ishikawa came back in good form and is fit and ready for the season ahead.

BALTIC FIRE ran well in third place on his first run back at Kempton after meeting abit if trouble in running under Joey Haynes.
