Libertarian at Epsom
Libertarian at Epsom
The yard has been a manic place over the last couple of weeks with the run upto the Derby, photographer, journalists, radio and TV crews have flocked to get involved with Libertarian which made our first crack at the classic even more exciting! The preparation went well and we were all roaring him home on the day. We were ecstatic to have come with a late run and take second position in the final strides, it was a tactical affair and the stop start pace didn't suit our lad as he is a big rangy galloper who would have preferred a good pace the whole way. Nonetheless we just finished second in the DERBY and the excitement of things to come has kept the yard and staff buzzing. It is likely he will be supplemented for the Irish Derby but we wont know for sure until later in the month.

Not forgetting our other runners which there haven't been to many as we have had alot of non runners due to the ground drying up so fast at some courses but this suited SPYKES BAY who got back to winning ways at Carlisle under our apprentice Michael Metcalfe at his first attempt over five furlongs.

HAY DUDE ran a good race in defeat in fourth position in a hot race at Doncaster and Angels Calling was fourth at Carlisle where the ground was a little to fast and the draw didn't help her.

We now look forward to Royal Ascot starting next week.
