MUTAHAADY makes it 3 out of 3...
Fri, Sept 30, 2016
MUTAHAADY makes it three out of three since joining us, we are delighted with him to score his third consecutive win the last time at Epsom under the excellent Clifford Lee. He gave owners Tim Dykes and his mother Gill Buchanan there first winner together
LORD BEN STACK made it two consecutive wins for this year both at Haydock this time stepped upto 1m 4furlongs and made the running once again taking his huge stride as an advantage and drew clear of the field. He has an entry in the horse in training sale in October at Tattersalls.

MJJACK got off the mark at the thirs time of asking to land his maiden at Haydock under a fine ride from Jim Crowley. Jim has ridden us many winners including a Group 1 and we are routing for him to get his first Champion Jockey title.  

BENIDICTION ran a solid race in defeat to finish second on very soft ground at Hamilton with KURAKA managing third on his second race course start.

MARSH PRIDE headed back to Musselburgh where she took the feature handicap two weeks ago but with a very wide draw and a blistering pace she could only manage third none the less another good performance by the mare.
SISTER DUDE broke her maiden...
Thu, Sept 22, 2016
SISTER DUDE broke her maiden up at the Ayr western meeting dropped back down to seven furlongs and her first attempt on the softer ground it all dropped into place for her. We were delighted for her owner/breeder Ray Bailey who is a great support to the yard and has been very patient with her this year.

SPORTY YANKEE came from last to first under a patient well timed ride by Jordan Vaughan, the step up in trip and the softer ground played into his strengthens and he made it a double on the day for us.

MUTAHAADY made it two from two since joining us being purchased from the July sales out of Richard Hannon's yard we gelded him and he has thrived in the two nursery's since.

Another good week with 3 winners...
Mon, Sept 12, 2016
Another good week with three winners and four placed horses starting with LOST AT SEA at Doncaster in the colours of Zorka Wentworth defied greenness under Joey Haynes to swoop through to beat more experienced and talented rivals in the Novice event over six furlongs.

MUTAHAADY made it an across the card double on the day to take the nursery at Carlisle half an hour later. Mutahaady looks a cheap purchase from Doncaster horse in training sale having been bought for only £6500 out of Richard Hannon's yard he will hopefully progress again.

UNDISCOVERED ANGEL & KURAKA both managed second place also at Carlisle on both their debuts.

MARSH PRIDE having only her second run for us made it a winning one when taking the feature race at Musselburgh, her delighted owner John Dance unfortunately didn't make it but was thrilled none the less with her being one of his favourites. She will now look to head back there in a couple of weeks time.

INTENSE TANGO who has been in tremendous form since being fitted with a tongue tie and partnered up with Clifford Lee managed third place in the very competitive premier handicap at Leopardstown on Champions weekend. We couldn't be happier with her current form and should lead her into the jumps season in good heart.

SUPER SATURDAY - Double on the Day!
Tue, Sept 6, 2016
The pouring rain didn't dampen our weekend as we had an amazing day on Saturday with our stable star QUIET REFLECTION romping home by 2 Lengths to win the Sprint Cup Group 1 at Haydock under Dougie Costello. We couldn't be more proud of the three year old filly who took on her elders and showed just how much ability she has when beating them with an effortless performance. 

Her work rider and groom who is also our stable apprentice usually is there to lead her up but he had a ride on GEORGIAN BAY in the London Mile at Kempton and nearly made it a red letter day when being caught close home to finish a brilliant second in the race he won last year. 

Our other stable apprentice Clifford Lee has had a great time of it riding his first double when partnering the second leg of it on LORD BEN STACK a huge gelding by Dylan Thomas who has been unlucky in running this year and was allowed a soft lead under Lee to stride clear by 2 Lengths in the mile and a quarter class 3 handicap. It was a lovely ride and the horse clearly enjoyed getting his head back in front. 

Lee then went onto win the following day on INTENSE TANGO in the stayers race giving yet another well judged front running ride to hold on by a nose after kicking clear up the straight. INTENSE TANGO has thrived since fitting a tongue strap and we are delighted to see the useful mare back in form before her winter jumps campaign.

UPGRADE ran a much improved second race finishing second to a useful looking two year old of Hugo Palmers, he clearly put the experience at York to good use and was much more on the ball on his second start at Haydock.
