RITA'S BOY ran another solid race even after again...
Sat, May 24, 2014
RITA'S BOY ran another solid race even after again being slow away from the stalls and then not handling the steep down hill run at Hamilton in the first part of the race, he was detached from the rest of the field but as soon as he hit the rising ground flew to make up many lengths and pass most of his rivals to finish third. He is a winner waiting to happen once he gets the hang of jumping quickly.

BOLD PREDICTION was again unlucky in the class 2 at Ripon under Joey Haynes after being boxed in most of the way round he got out to chase the winner home grinding him down with every stride to be denied only by half a length.

CAPRIOR BERE having his debut at Redcar under Philip Makin ran a solid race to finish second, the ground changed on the day to good to firm which didn't suit him and after being very quick away from the stalls was probably out in front long enough aswell.

MR MATTHEWS ran a blinder at Ascot under Ben Curtis...

MR MATTHEWS ran a blinder at Ascot under Ben Curtis, he got slightly hampered coming out of the stalls and was always a little further back than ideal but he ran on strongly to finish third in a competitive race and we might now step him upto one mile.

ANGUS OG had his first attempt at six furlongs on rain softened ground at Ripon and seemed to relish it as he stormed home under a well judged ride by our apprentice Joey Haynes. ARAN SKY was unlucky not to break his maiden as he got collared in the final strides by a fast finisher having drawn seven lengths clear of the rest of the field. There should be a win in him shortly.

BALTIC FIRE was another horse unlucky not to get his first win, he has been placed many times through the winter and with the ground being softer than ideal he did well to only be denied by a head.

ODELIZ finished third in the Group 2 at York behind two group one horses, she ran on well to take third having had to switch twice in the final two furlongs. Being a big scopey filly she ideally needs a strong pace and kept in a nice rhythm to do her long stride justice.

We have had a fabulous run of luck these last ten days...

We have had a fabulous run of luck these last ten days after our five timer we have carried on the winners with ISHIKAWA landing a nice handicap at Ascot under a inspiring front running ride by our apprentice Rob J Fitzpatrick followed on the same day with Dalmarella Dancer winning very comfortably in the Maiden at Southwell, she is a lovely big mare who has just needed a bit of time to develop and not rushing her at two has proved successful with a second and a win under her belt this year.

RITA'S BOY also running at Southwell ran a cracking race but unfortunately by fluffing the start and giving many lengths away he could only manage to run on strongly to grab second, he showed a good turn of foot and he shouldn't be too far away next time if he jumps the stalls properly.
NATURAL ORDER a lovely looking son of USA stallion Munnings did the business at the first time of asking when even after being kept wide battled on gamely to win the two year old maiden, he is a horse that should appreciate a bit further in time with his dam having won over one mile.

YEEOOW put up another tough performance to finish second at Newmarket under Joey Haynes, he scooted to the front a furlong from home to take the lead but as in alot of races at Newmarket they split into two groups and the winner came up the stands rail, he is a horse who likes to come late and always have something to aim at so not having the pace his side didn't really suit but it was a highly competitive race and we were very pleased with his performance.

TRIXIE MALONE is only a small filly with vision in just one eye but she has a big heart and always digs deep to give her best, she won a class three fillies handicap at Windsor making her record three from three this year.

All at Spigot Lodge were delighted with our first ever five timer! Having sent seven runners out for the day we were hoping for a winner or two but to get five was brilliant and a tremendous effort from all the team.

YOURARTISONFIRE started the ball rolling winning the ultra competitive class 2 handicap at Haydock under Joey Haynes in good fashion. Joey then headed to Doncaster to ride TRIXIE MALONE who stuck her head out and held on gamely to win, she was up in class and showed guts when battling hard to fend off the rivals.

ELIZABETH FLYNN on her second run having previously ran well in fourth place at Ripon was sharp out of the stalls and quickly into her stride making easy work of the Wolverhampton maiden under Martin Lane, she may only be small but she has a good attitude and will now most likely head to Chester. REVE DE NUIT was the second winner at Wolverhampton with Danny Tudhope dping the steering as he strode clear with little effort to make it his first win on polytrack.

BOLD PREDICTION completed the five timer also ridden by Danny Tudhope when winning the Class 4 handicap, He is a consistent horse who has now won three times for us aswell as being placed on numerous occasions.
