LONDON CITIZEN ran a brilliant race in The Swedish Derby...
Wed, Aug 14, 2013
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, 

WE'LL 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 soon.

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 long time.

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.

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.

ANGELS CALLING 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 infront. 

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!

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!

WITCHY WOMAN 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 CITIZEN 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 well.

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 runners.

Racecourse Gallop at Ripon
