RITA'S BOY ran another solid race even after again...
Sat, May 24, 2014
RITA'S BOY ran another solid race even after again being slow away
from the stalls and then not handling the steep down hill run at
Hamilton in the first part of the race, he was detached from the rest of
the field but as soon as he hit the rising ground flew to make up many
lengths and pass most of his rivals to finish third. He is a winner
waiting to happen once he gets the hang of jumping quickly.
BOLD PREDICTION was again unlucky in the class 2 at Ripon under
Joey Haynes after being boxed in most of the way round he got out to
chase the winner home grinding him down with every stride to be denied
only by half a length.
CAPRIOR BERE having his debut at Redcar under Philip Makin ran a
solid race to finish second, the ground changed on the day to good to
firm which didn't suit him and after being very quick away from the
stalls was probably out in front long enough aswell.
MR MATTHEWS ran a blinder at Ascot under Ben Curtis...

MR MATTHEWS ran a blinder at Ascot under Ben Curtis, he got
slightly hampered coming out of the stalls and was always a little
further back than ideal but he ran on strongly to finish third in a
competitive race and we might now step him upto one mile.
ANGUS OG had his first attempt at six furlongs on rain softened
ground at Ripon and seemed to relish it as he stormed home under a well
judged ride by our apprentice Joey Haynes. ARAN SKY was unlucky not to
break his maiden as he got collared in the final strides by a fast
finisher having drawn seven lengths clear of the rest of the field.
There should be a win in him shortly.
BALTIC FIRE was another horse unlucky not to get his first win, he
has been placed many times through the winter and with the ground being
softer than ideal he did well to only be denied by a head.
finished third in the Group 2 at York behind two group one horses, she
ran on well to take third having had to switch twice in the final two
furlongs. Being a big scopey filly she ideally needs a strong pace and
kept in a nice rhythm to do her long stride justice.
We have had a fabulous run of luck these last ten days...

We have had a fabulous run of luck these last ten days after our
five timer we have carried on the winners with ISHIKAWA landing a nice
handicap at Ascot under a inspiring front running ride by our apprentice
Rob J Fitzpatrick followed on the same day with Dalmarella Dancer
winning very comfortably in the Maiden at Southwell, she is a lovely big
mare who has just needed a bit of time to develop and not rushing her
at two has proved successful with a second and a win under her belt this
RITA'S BOY also running at Southwell ran a cracking race but
unfortunately by fluffing the start and giving many lengths away he
could only manage to run on strongly to grab second, he showed a good
turn of foot and he shouldn't be too far away next time if he jumps the
NATURAL ORDER a lovely looking son of USA stallion Munnings did the
business at the first time of asking when even after being kept wide
battled on gamely to win the two year old maiden, he is a horse that
should appreciate a bit further in time with his dam having won over one
YEEOOW put up another tough performance to finish second at
Newmarket under Joey Haynes, he scooted to the front a furlong from home
to take the lead but as in alot of races at Newmarket they split into
two groups and the winner came up the stands rail, he is a horse who
likes to come late and always have something to aim at so not having the
pace his side didn't really suit but it was a highly competitive race
and we were very pleased with his performance.
TRIXIE MALONE is only a small filly with vision in just one eye but
she has a big heart and always digs deep to give her best, she won a
class three fillies handicap at Windsor making her record three from
three this year.
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
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.
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.
