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
KARL granted licence.

Karl will be delighted to take back over the reins
in the near future after the BHA licensing committee have granted him a
licence to train here at Spigot Lodge, it will remain a family business
where the whole team put alot in and all play there own parts. We would
like to thank all our owners for the continued support they have given
us and long may it continue.
MAGIC DESTINY took the fillies handicap at Ayr
Mon, July 15, 2013
MAGIC DESTINY took the fillies handicap at Ayr in good style under
Danny Tudhope who didnt need to waste any energy as she cruised clear of
the field. We have always thought alot of her and we are hoping to pick
black type up this year.
Angus Og was narrowly denied the following day at
Ayr finishing a good second he likes to make the running and should be
getting his head back in front before long.
ground has been pretty quick everywhere with all the glorious sunshine
we have been having so we will be waiting with a few of ours for a bit
of rain to ease the ground.
This week was full of seconds!

MR MATTHEWS finished a close second at Newcastle under Mick O'Connell in the novice 2 year old race, he will improve with a bit more give underfoot and a step up in trip.
EXACTEMENT ran a blinder in the Listed event at Warwick she is a tough filly and is sure to get her head in front soon.
VISIT COPENHAGEN ran a solid race in defeat at Leicester she is a tricky filly at home and is still learning how to race.
BOLD PREDICTION was narrowly denied a second win at Newcastle on plate day, being stepped up to one mile he showed he stayed well.
