LONDON CITIZEN ran a brilliant race in The Swedish Derby to finish
second, we enjoyed our trip over there and everyone involved was
delighted with the result.
ANGUS OG got his head back infront at Thirsk in the sprint after being narrowly beaten last time out,
SHAKE HANDS was the second french bred colt to win this month getting
on top of his rivals late on after running green in the early stages
under Martin Harley, he should come on for the run and strengthen up
throughout the year.
VISIT COPENHAGEN was the first leg of the double we
enjoyed at Haydock when gamely hanging on after making the running, she
has been consistently placed throughout the year and it was nice to see
her get her head in front.
HAY DUDE showed his class when easily winning the
feature race at HAydock under a confident ride by Danny Tudhope he is a
horse with alot of potential and we think he will be gaining Black Type
WITCHY WOMAN made it another winner for our new
apprentice Joey Haynes and we were delighted to have a winner for long
serving owners Colin & Melba Bryce who have supported the yard for a
ANGELS CALLING must like the welsh air as she
recoreded her second win on her second visit to Ffos LAs under Joey
Haynes, she has put up much better efforts recently back on turf.
RISING BREEZE a handsome french bred son of Shirocco made his debut at
Nottingham and firmly put his opposition in place when professionally
drawing clear in the closing strides, he may be heading to France for
his next run.
ISHIKAWA a new recruit to the yard won on his second
time of asking for us after putting up a good debut run in second place
he went one better back at Sandown under our apprentice Rob J
Fitzpatrick, he then went back to Sandown the following week and
recorded another second to make three runs and three visits to the
winners enclosure since joining us.
YOURARTISONFIRE wins impressively at Sandown hitting
the front under Martin Harley and drawing clear in the final furlong.
He is a horse we think alot of and should keep improving.
BOLD PREDICTION wins impressively at Ayr!
Sat, July 27, 2013
BOLD PREDICTION won impressively at Ayr three days after being
placed at Pontefract by striding clear from start to finish under our
apprentice Joey Haynes it was a good performance and he defiantly has
appreciated the step up in trip.
DANCHEUR was unlucky in defeat at Ayr on monday, the free going filly
made all of the running under PJ Mcdonald and was collared on the line,
she is very consistent and always seems to run her race on quick ground.
ISHIKAWA making his debut for us at Sandown under
yard apprentice Robbie Fitzpatrick finishing a good second his best race
yet on turf. Also at Sandown GREED IS GOOD ran a blinder to finish
second at a big price, he is a stunning son of Myboycharlie and we think
he will continue to progress.
YOURARTISONFIRE flew up the straight to win
decisively at Sandown under a confident ride by Martin Harley having
been placed all year it was good to get his head back infront and we are
hoping he will now go on from this.
BALTIC FIRE was our 66-1 placed horse this week, stepping up in
trip and with first time head gear he put up a good performance running
on strongly to grab third place.
ran a much improved race back on turf to finish second at Thirsk,
having ran disappointingly on the all-weather last time the switch back
to turf proved successful. She would prefer abit of juice in the ground
so when the rain comes she will hopefully be getting her head back
We look to have a busy week of runners coming up
with a couple heading to Glorious Goodwood hoping to turn all these
seconds into winners
A weekend of placed horses!
Mon, July 22, 2013
We have had a weekend of placed horses all getting in the winners
enclosure but unfortunately not for first place!
BOLD PREDICTION ran
another game race being stepped up in trip to one mile at Pontefract he
has been fairly consistent since his run and we are hoping he will get
his head back infront soon!
down in grade ran a good race in defeat finishing
third at Ripon where NORTHERN WATER
finished third in the following race
for Maiden two year olds. It looked a hot contest and we were delighted
with his racecourse debut, he will come on for the experience. LONDON
put a disappointing run behind him back at Ripon where he has
ran well before finishing second in the Bell ringer Handicap race it was
his first time at one mile four furlongs and he looked to stay the trip
ran a blinder at Haydock in a class 2 conditions
race to finish second, she is an improving filly who goes on all ground.
There was only three other runners and she hit the front earlier than
ideal which probably cost her the race.
We have a busy week ahead and we
are looking forward to a bit of rain that is forecast for some of our
Racecourse Gallop at Ripon
