LADOFASH gets off the mark at Wolverhampton
Wed, Apr 5, 2017
LADOFASH gets off the mark at Wolverhampton under Pj Mcdonald. We were delighted that Ladofash got his head in front for owner John Dance, he has ran some consistent races in defeat and deserved to get a win under his belt.

RINARIA ran a very credible race first time out to finish second under Jordan Vaughan at Wolverhampton, she is a lovely filly who was a bit weak at two so we didn't rush her and hopefully that has proved the right decision with her putting a great effort in first time out at three years of age.

DOUBLE ON THE DAY at Newcastle with MUSIKEL the son of Frankel making his debut for us winning well under yard apprentice Jordan Vaughan we have had him since the new year and have been pleased with the way he has strengthened and come on since joining us, hopefully there is more to come and he keeps Frankel's amazing strike rate up. The second leg of the Double was MAN ABOUT TOWN who was also making it two consecutive wins under Clifford Lee who gets a very good tune out of him. He was stepping upto seven furlongs but stayed the six furlongs last time out well and obviously relishes the track at Newcastle he will now run on turf and hopefully continue to progress.

NICK VEDDER first time handicapping broke his maiden in gutsy style fending off the short priced favourite to win by a length and three quarters ridden by the excellent Clifford Lee. He is a horse we have always thought a lot about at home and were disappointed with him first time out however he seems to have got his confidence and can hopefully move onwards and upwards after that win.
MIDNIGHT MAN ran a solid race in third first time out this season at Southwell staying on nicely.
 

MADE OF HONOUR ran a very pleasing debut to finish second at Doncaster and she will have learnt a lot from that experience.

TIMELESS ART also ran very well first time out this year and will benefit from being stepped back upto one mile again. Few pics attached for you to put near relevant article don't have to be big just trying to put a few in to make it a bit more interesting.

MAN ABOUT TOWN breaks his maiden nicely...
Sat, Mar 11, 2017
MAN ABOUT TOWN breaks his maiden nicely under a fine front running ride from Clifford Lee to win the Apprentice handicap at Newcastle.


TOUCH ME nearly followed up on her win at Lingfield when narrowly denied there again under Jordan Vaughan. She has ran two good races over seven furlongs at Lingfield now and she is maturing and strengthening all the time.


Lady Cristal put another good performance up at Newcastle to finish third, she is a keen going filly but Ben Curtis seems to get a tune out of her and she should progress again on turf.

FRONTLINE PHANTOM one of the yards old favourites who spends a lot of his days as a lead horse to the two year olds and the quirky horses at the tender age of ten gave Charlotte Greenway a lovely spin in the Amateur riders race to finish third.

The John Dance owned HOT NATURED...
Hot Natured
The John Dance owned HOT NATURED ran a very credible debut narrowly denied by Signe the half sister to LORD SHANAKILL costing a whopping 1.1 million as a yearling. Hot Natured travelled very strongly in a moderate run race and drew clear with Signe in the final furlong, she should come on for the run and gained some experience having never been on a racetrack.
