LADY CRYSTAL broke her maiden at Newcastle
Wed, Feb 8, 2017
LADY CRYSTAL broke her maiden at Newcastle under a great front running ride from Ben Curtis. We were delighted to see her get off the mark for her patient owners Champagne Charlies club. She is a free going filly but Ben managed to hold on to her enough early to get her home in front holding off some late challenges. There were some great scenes from delighted owners caught on camera in the paddock.

UPGRADE having his first run at Southwell on Fibresand under Dougie Costello made it a winning one and did it in good style drawing well clear of the pack after making the running. He is a horse who enjoys it out in front and seemed to relish the change in surface. He was later sold at the Tattersalls Feb sale.

EDGED IN BLUE returning from a break put in a good effort under Jordan Vaughan finishing second to an impressive type at Lingfield. She should come on for the run and should benefit for an extra furlong.

PERCY VERENCE was an unlucky third at Newcastle having had to come around the field on the bend to get a run after a messy slow paced race. A decent consistent gallop would suit him much better.  
FEAR THE FURY under Jordan Vaughan second time out
Wed, Jan 18, 2017
took the Wolverhampton maiden  in good style. He is a beautiful looking son of Elusive Quality that has been working nicely at home so we were delighted to see him get his head infront.

NICK VEDDER was unlucky not to break his maiden on the third time of asking at Newcastle when getting trapped behind horses and not getting a clear run through until the final furlong when the leader had already got away from the pack.
DAISY BERE back on the all weather...
Thu, Dec 29, 2016
DAISY BERE back on the all weather and given a positive ride back down in trip under Joey Haynes won the Class 2 handicap at Wolverhampton even after jinking badly in the final furlong. She is a progressive filly with plenty of scope and we hope she can go on from this.

NOTTE ILLUMINATA joined us from Godolphin after they sold her at Goffs mares sale to Rathbarry stud. The beautifully bred half sister to Lilbourne Lad made a winning debut for us under Jordan Vaughan at Newcastle. She will hopefully come on for that win and be able to get some more form before she heads to stud.

NICK VEDDER ran a much improved race switched to the All weather finishing in third place with only the Gosden trained very well bred duo infront of him. We were extremely disappointed with his first run at Haydock so we were very pleased to see him show his potential on his second start.

SUMMER COLLECTION managed third at Newcastle stepped up in trip, we hope to get a win under her belt before she heads off to stud.

We are immensely proud of Quiet Reflection who has gone from strength to strength and has achieved so much already in her career, we are delighted she remains in training for next year. It was a fantastic achievement for her to win the Cartier award and she became the only three year old filly to have won this award and was the only UK based horse to win this year. Roll on 2017 turf season .......
