We are currently busy with plenty of yearlings who are now almost all ridden and going up the gallops. It is an essential time for there learning and development and we are very pleased with the bunch we have. We still have a few aswell as shares left for sale they would make a lovely Christmas present!

We have had a few runners on the all weather including LILLY VEGA who got off the mark at the fourth time of asking after previously finishing second also at Chelmsford and having a very unlucky stumble at Catterick that unseated the jockey Ben Curtis. She will now have a small break before running again next season.

GEORGIAN BAY has been kept busy on the all weather that seems to be his preferred surface with a good strike rate on the synthetic tracks. He was unlucky to be beat by a nose in a photo finish at Chelmsford under our new assigned stable jockey Dougie Costello. He can regularly be a bit slow out of the stalls which can cost him the race as he needs to race handily like when he won the London Mile comfortably at Kempton. He will continue to run on the all weather through this season.

BANDIT BOB a lovely imposing son of Manduro who has a 2016 Derby entry got collared in a photo finish at Kempton in a maiden ridden by Dougie Costello. He will now have a break and time to mature into his large frame ahead of his three year old campaign.

WINGS OF ESTEEM ran a promising race first time out finishing second in a maiden at Southwell, she is a late maturing Sir Percy filly who has always looked a lovely filly but has just been backward and needed time to mature in to herself. The run will have brought her on leaps and bounds and we are looking forward to seeing her out next season.

YOU'RE FIRED makes it back to back wins when scoring nicely under Danny Tudhope at Nottingham in very testing conditions. RITA'S BOY then made it a quick fire double when landing the sprint under Ben Curtis, he is a horse who loves the soft going and with ideal conditions in place he ran out a ready winner. 

FELIX LEITER is a very consistent horse who finished in the frame once again when placed second under Joey Haynes in the Apprentice race at the closing meeting of the Turf at Doncaster. He will now have a well earned winter break and hopefully come out as a four year old stronger and matured.

We have had a good few seconds this month with ADA MISOBEL, SOUTHERN GAILES, YEEOOW & GEORGIAN BAY all running good races just finding one to strong on the all weather circuit.
