PARNASSIAN follows up his impressive debut with another win
Wed, Aug 31, 2016

PARNASSIAN follows up his impressive debut with another win this time at Carlisle on turf under Clifford Lee, he looks set to head to the Curragh to run in The Tattersalls Ireland sales race on Irish Champions weekend.

MICOLYS finished a games second at Newcastle and then also went onto finish second only beat a head in France and subsequently got claimed.

INTENSE TANGO back to form with some good efforts this flat season managed to get her head infront once again under a fine ride from Clifford Lee to take the stayers feature race at Musselburgh.

MALLYMKUN under Jordan Vaughan got a great run up the inside at Wolverhampton to make it two wins for her there whilst proud owner/breeder Ray Bailey was there to cheer her home.

SIR VIKTOR dropped back to five furlongs at Beverly got his head infront under Dougie Costello.

APRES MIDI broke her maiden at Hamilton in good style whilst drawing clear of her rivals under a hands and heels ride, the well bred daughter of champion sire Galileo is growing and improving all the time and we expect her to keep progressing.

LADY CLAIR enjoyed the sharp turns of Chester and got back to winning ways when taking the sprint there under Joey Haynes, she was a good two year old for David Barron and we are pleased to get her back to form now as a three year old.

THIRD ORDER broke his maiden tag on the third time of asking beating of Godolphins short priced favourite under a positive ride from Ben Curtis this son of Hatrick has progressed with each run.

YEEOOW currently our oldest horse in training got his head back infront after some galant placed efforts at Goodwood under Joey Haynes, we have had him since a yearling and he is a yard favourite it is always nice to see the older ones keep there form.

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.
