We are delighted to welcome owner/breeders Cheveley Park to our yard as they have purchased the Group one winning Unfortunately to stay in training with us for a three year old campaign. He will run in the Middle park at Newmarket in there colours next Saturday which looks to be an extremely competitive and exciting renewal of the race.

LAURENS the beautiful daughter of Siyouni and apple of owner John Dance's eye showed her class to win the May Hill Group 2 event at Doncaster. They went slow early which didn't suit her but she showed real class to quicken through the pack and get there on the line under a perfect timed ride by PJ McDonald. Owner John Dance was ecstatic to have his first Group win and put in some good Dance moves live on ITV Racing. Laurens may now head to Newmarket in October. 

ELLTHEA came back to form nicely to bolt up by six lengths in the valuable nursery at Doncaster under Clifford Lee, she is a filly who has a lot of ability but has been badly in season through the summer and this has effected her performances. She will now try get some black type in the up and coming last weeks of the season. 

WAX AND WANE made his second racecourse appearance a winning one when taking the Carlisle maiden under Ben Curtis. He needed every yard of the one mile trip and just got on top of the Andrew Balding trained favourite in the final strides. He is a big backward horse that should keep maturing and improving. 

HAVANA GREY who has been one of our leading forces of the season put up another tremendous performance in defeat to finish second in the Flying Childers at Doncaster. That was his eighth race of the season in which he has finished in the first two on seven occasions. We are immensely proud of his achievements this year. 

CIRRUS MINOR ran a cracking debut in a hot Newcastle nursery to finish a clear second behind a horse of Godolphins that had previously won. She should come on for that and we look forward to seeing her second time out.

HUMBLE GRATITUDE won on his third ever start at Hamilton under Clifford Lee, the imposing son of Foxwedge has ran two nice races in defeat having gone very close to Saxton at Haydock and that horse went on to finish a respectable 5th in the Gimcrack. He looks set to take his chance in the sales race at Doncaster.

RINARIA won her second race of the season back at Beverley under Joey Haynes. She has ran some good efforts in defeat aswell this season.

We have had a few good seconds this past week in some decent races with MJJACK in the premier handicap at Ascot, CROWN VALLARY in the conditions race at Maisons Laffitte and MYBOYHENRY all the way down at Brighton.

JAY KAY was so close to getting off the mark for 2017 when pipped on the line after making all the running, he has been very unlucky this season getting beat by short distances but were hopeful with the rain around he will get his head back in front. 

We have a very busy few weeks coming up with plenty of runner and the Yearling sales season! Check out our for sale pages for the updates on yearlings for sale.
