Wednesday 30th August

On Sunday we started the afternoon off at Yarmouth with FIRST DRIVE. We thought she would have appreciated the return to quicker ground but she drifted left under when coming under and never really mounted a challenge. She looks as though possibly she may benefit from some headgear.. . . . First Drive... [continue reading]

Sunday 27th August

Sadly on Thursday our York runners failed to impress in their races and possibly it was just a case of the ground not drying up enough for them. We started the afternoon off with RONALD R who travelled nicely through the early part of the race and when asked for... [continue reading]

On Saturday at the July Course before racing there was a Newmarket Hacks class which was open to all the trainers’ hacks. MILLER the bosses hack was certainly turned from a goose into a swan under the hard work of our farriers Rebecca Lowe and Dale Powell who did a... [continue reading]

On Thursday we started the afternoon off at Salisbury with RUPERT’S LASS and CHICKPEA in the same race. CHICKPEA ran much better than her Leicester race and did not look as green. She looks as though she will appreciate further and is sure to keep improving with her racing... [continue reading]

On Friday we started the afternoon off at Goodwood with RAYS THE MONEY. He was again slowly away, but the strong pace helped him and he appeared to hit top gear as others were fading. He plugged away in the final furlong to finish sixth.  His only win on the... [continue reading]

Wednesday 2nd August

Yesterday we headed to Glorious Goodwood with our first runners at this year’s meeting. FABRICATE started the afternoon off for us and it could not have started much better. He was dropped back in trip and travelled nicely throughout the race. He made his challenge when getting a hefty... [continue reading]
