KATIE'S DIAMOND an imposing daughter of first season sire Turtle Bowl confirmed what we had hoped and won comfortably first time out in a maiden at Redcar. Impressive enough to attract plenty of offers in from both the UK and over seas. She has now been purchased by QATAR RACING and Mrs Barbara Keller who already has two in training with us. We are extremely pleased to be training for Sheikh Fahad and his team and we hope to have plenty of success in the future for them.

YEEOOW got his head back infront when he got up close home at Pontefract in the sprint handicap under Martin Harley, he is a horse that loves a stiff finish and relished the good ground.
ARCAMENTE finally broke his maiden at Catterick under a well judged ride from Micheal Stainton, he has been knocking on the door in several runs and the ground has usually gone against him. The win should give him some confidence and were hoping he can progress on from that. As a stayer he may give hurdling a try.
LONDON PROTOCOL ran another respectable race second time out at Hamilton although he was still very coltish in preliminaries and has subsequently been gelded this should really help him concentrate and fulfil his potential he has shown us at home.
ODELIZ always seems to run a solid race in defeat and once again she managed to get herself into the placing where she finished 3rd in the Princess Elizabeth Stakes (Group 3) at Epsom on Oaks day.

RITA'S BOY ran another fine race in defeat finishing second once again in a competitive event at Chester, he is a consistent horse who is always thereabouts on the softer ground.

TRIXIE MALONE won her sixth race of her career in great fashion making all of the running and drawing clear in the final furlong. She is an ultraa tough filly who always tries her heart out.

YOU'RE FIRED took a step up into Listed company at the York Dante festival and was only denied by a head to make it back to back wins, he had a little trouble in running but stuck to his guns and ran well in defeat.

ODELIZ again ran a good race to finish fourth in the Group 2 mares race at York, she travelled very well throughout and bringing her back a furlong will probably suit her better.

DRESSED IN FUR broke her maiden at the third time of asking as she battled hard under a strong ride from Ben Curtis to win on the rain softened ground at Hamilton, she should come on for stepping up in trip.

LONDON PROTOCOL a French bred son of Muhtathir made his debut at Redcar after being full of himself in the preliminaries and giving Ben Curtis a hairy ride to post he ran green but ran on well in the closing stages to take third. He is sure to come on for the run and should do better in the future.

Kind Regards
