LONDON PROTOCOL ran a great race...
Wed, Aug 3, 2016
LONDON PROTOCOL ran a great race at Deauville in France, he ran in a ultra competitive Listed event which was his first attempt in a black type grade race and finished third only beaten just over one length. He is a French bred horse so qualifies for the amazing French premiums they have on offer. RIVIERE ARGENTEE also French bred accompanied London Protocol to Deauville and also finished third in a fillies conditions race after previously winning her maiden at Carlisle.

FIDELMA MOON ran another creditable race to finish second at Hamilton under her regular rider Jordan Vaughan who always gets a good tune out of her. Unfortunately she hung across the track which cost her the win but she has a consistent string of placed and win form to her name and will now head to Sandown.

EDGED IN BLUE finished third on her second start at Ripon, she didn't look to handle the undulating track so we were pleased with her performance.
WE'LL SHAKE HANDS makes it two consecutive wins..
Wed, July 27, 2016
WE'LL SHAKE HANDS makes it two consecutive wins under Clifford Lee when taking the Yarmouth handicap. He made the running then got headed but battled back gamely to win by a nose in a photo finish. He seems to have gained confidence and the duo get on very well.

We were delighted  with TAHOO winning at York to get owner John Dance his first ever winner at the track given a fine ride by Jordan Vaughan. She is a small filly but very tough and game and that was her second win in four runs.

APRES MIDI went down by a head in her Carlisle maiden after fighting off her first challenger she got collared on the line by a late closer. The lovely bred daughter of Galileo should be getting her head in front before long.

INTENSE TANGO made all under Clifford Lee to finish second on her first run at the new All weather track at Newcastle.

SAN SEBASTIANA makes a winning debut...
Wed, July 20, 2016
SAN SEBASTIANA makes a winning debut at Doncaster. The daughter of Power settled in the rear and came through the pack on the far side to take her debut comfortably under Dougie Costello in a fine fashion. She should defiantly come on for the experience and she looked to beat some nice horses.

MICOLYS a French bred filly took the spoils on her second racecourse attempt under Ben Curtis, she is a tough filly who battled back after being lent on by the runner up all the way up the straight at Ayr but she got on top close home. She enjoyed the ease in the ground and looks like she will get further, she may head to France for the French premiums in the near future.

WE'LL SHAKE HANDS got his head back in front under a well judged ride from yard apprentice Clifford Lee at Nottingham in the apprentice race .

COPPER BAKED had no luck in running having jumped a bit slow she found herself having to be taken back and around the field before she could eventually get a clear run and run on to finish a close third beaten around 1 length. She is a big raw filly who will come on in time.

JAYKAY was back to a bit of form when second at Ayr where he has a very good strike rate, he has struggled this year as he has been so high in the handicap after his impressive four wins last season. We hope to get his head infront soon but will have to wait until the rain arrives.
QUIET REFLECTION did us proud again...
Tue, July 12, 2016
QUIET REFLECTION did us proud again to finish a very respectable third in the Darley July Cup behind Limato. The ground dried up to Good to firm ground and this was the first time she had encountered these types of fast conditions but she dug deep and stuck to it to beat some world class sprinters. She is defiantly a better filly with some give under foot and she will now have a few weeks break as she has had a few quick races before starting her preparations for an Autumn campaign.

AZZIR lands the apprentice handicap under a well judged ride from our apprentice Clifford Lee, Clifford has gone from strength to strength since joining us and we are really pleased with his improvement he is an apprentice with a bright future ahead of him.

RIVIERE ARGENTEE won under Ben Curtis on the second time of asking enjoying the rain softened ground and the uphill climb at Carlisle. She is a French bred filly who qualifies for the French premiums so could head out to France to take advantage of that in the near future.

USED TO BE ran a solid race second time out at Doncaster stepped up in trip to six furlongs, he chased home an impressive well regarded winner so there looks more to come from him.
WINGS OF ESTEEM was narrowly touched off on her final start for us at Yarmouth she then headed to the sale where she was purchased for £18,000 we wish her new connections luck with her.

TAHOO may be small physically but she has plenty of guts and determination and ran a great race as rank outsider in a York nursery under Joey Haynes to finish second beating a Listed winner.

BAIE D'AMOUR finished second at Hamilton not being able to quite peg back the leader, she should improve with a step up in trip and better ground.
