QUIET REFLECTION Storms home to win...
Wed, June 15, 2016
QUIET REFLECTION Storms home to win the Sandy Lane Group 2 at Haydock in impressive style she now heads for the COMMONWEALTH CUP at Ascot on Thursday, She put up an extremely impressive performance at Haydock and we are very hopeful she can do the same in the Commonwealth.

MOONDYNE JOE who was lightly raced as a two year old after winning first time out and finishing mid field in the super sprint was given a great strong ride by Silvestor De Sousa
to win first time out as a three year old in the five furlong handicap. He will race once more before heading to the July sale at Tattersalls.

JOLIEVITESSE was touched off to finish a close second in a muddling affair at Haydock under Joey Haynes. Reading through before the race it looked set to be a good gallop with plenty of front runners in the race which would have suited as Jolievitesse sits in and comes from behind so we were very disappointed for it not to turn out like that and the leader set a modest gallop and stole the race from the front with Jolievitesse getting going too late. We are hoping he gets in to the Cumberland Plate on Bell day at Carlisle next week.

FELIX LEITER put up a personal best performance under a positive ride from Yard apprentice Clifford Lee in the Class 2 seven furlong handicap at York, making the running Felix put two lengths between himself and his rivals two furlongs from home and hung on gamely.

SHOWDANCE KID a good looking son of Showcasing got off the mark at Carlisle under Dougie Costello he appreciated the stiff six furlongs and took a while to pull up, we are hoping he can progress again after this his experience.

SPORTY YANKEE was unlucky not to break his maiden under Clifford Lee at Windsor as the winner and himself drew seven lengths clear of the rest of the field and he went down only by a head it was defiantly a personal best for the horse and he should get his head in front soon.

MEDICI BANCHIERE defied large odds...
Wed, May 25, 2016
MEDICI BANCHIERE defied large odds to finish an unlucky second after hanging across the track on debut at York, he then went on to bolt up by 10 Lengths second time out at Carlisle under Dougie Costello. He is a lovely colt by speedy sire Medicean he still ran slightly green second time when drawing clear and should keep improving.

TAP THE HONEY made history when landing the first ever race on the new All weather surface at Newcastle under Joey Haynes the son of Fast net rock took a bit of time to develop at two and benefited from being gelded over the winter.

TAHOO & WHOLESOME made it a double at Carlisle when both winning on this years debut. We were delighted to get a first runner first winner combination for owner John Dance and the daughter of Zebedee looks a smart prospect. WHOLESOME had some good form when finishing second to a decent Godolphin filly at Newmarket at two and broke her maiden in good style first time out as a three year old.

FIDELMA MOON who seems to love an up hill climb finish battled on to be narrowly denied uped in grade at Carlisle in a fillies handicap, she is very consistent at the track.
NAVAJO WAR DANCE having his first run for us and his first run of his three year old career took the Ayr maiden very easily, this should have given him some confidence and hopefully go onto better things.

HIGH DRAW having been touched off by a nose on his last run got the hang of things next time out and drew a few lengths clear to win his maiden at Wetherby, he is a large laid back son of Falco and has ran green in his previous two races so should keep improving and may benefit stepping up in trip.

YOU'RE FIRED has been in tremendous form this year so far and gave another great run to finish second in the Listed contest at Haydock.
FIDELMA MOON and apprentice Jordan Vaughan...
Wed, Apr 20, 2016
FIDELMA MOON  and apprentice Jordan Vaughan kept there successful partnership intact registering another win at Beverley and making it Jordan's first win back after injury.

BIODYNAMIC headed for the Tattersalls sales race for three year olds after scoring at Kempton. The son of New Approach ran a blinding race to finish third beating some high rated horses. He is still learning and we are hoping he can progress from this as the handicapper has taken no chances and put him up 20lbs for that run.

Karl is busy now at the Breeze up sales and hoping to find our next Quiet Reflection who he purchased at DBS last year.

QUIET REFLECTION lands the Prix Sigy!
QUIET REFLECTION
QUIET REFLECTION lands the Prix Sigy on her first run of the year, the consistent tough daughter of showcasing battled to win the Group 3 under stable jockey Dougie Costello in testing conditions. We were pleased with the way she had wintered and although she was taking on the colts and stepping up to six furlongs she did all connections proud to claim her second Group 3. She is now likely to head to Haydock for the Sandy Lane stakes Group 2.

BIODYNAMIC broke his maiden tag on his second career start and 2016 debut under Joey Haynes he now heads to Newmarket for the Tattersalls sales race.
GEORGIAN BAY ran a pleasing first run back of the year to finish third at Kempton after being slightly slow away.
HIGH DRAW a big raw son of Falco who we didn't run at two ran a blinder first time out as a three year old having been green in the early stages once the penny dropped came home nicely to finish a close fourth.
