UNFORTUNATLEY stamped his authority ...
Tue, May 23, 2017
UNFORTUNATLEY stamped his authority on the competition in the Hamilton maiden winning decisively by 3 lengths under Clifford Lee. He is a lovely straight forward colt who we have always liked.
MJJACK relished the rain which had turned the going at Doncaster soft and under Clifford Lee he won the seven furlong handicap.
SIMMIE purchased at the sales last winter by John Dance to eventually take her place in his breeding operation added to her black type by going down narrowly in the Listed fillies race at Newbury. She loved the soft ground and put up a great performance to finish second only beat a head.
BORN TO BE ALIVE having his racecourse debut...
Wed, May 17, 2017
BORN TO BE ALIVE having his racecourse debut at the age of three under Clifford Lee confirmed the promise he has shown as at home to be narrowly denied going down by only a nose to finish second at Wetherby in the one mile two furlong maiden. He has always been a bog raw horse and needed time so we were delighted the patience paid off and he put up a very good effort for his first ever run being slightly green in the finish.
STAR OF ZAAM another new comer this time a two year old colt after running green in the early stages flew home to take third position being beaten less than half a length. He can be a bit quirky at home but handled his debut very well and behaved impeccably.
The flat season has started to get rolling...
Wed, May 10, 2017
The flat season has started to get rolling now and we have
enjoyed getting a few winners on the board.
LADY CRISTAL has really come to herself recently and managed
to notch another success in good style this time at Musselburgh in the sprint
handicap with Clifford Lee taking his valuable 5lb claim off her. This was her
first win on turf having been previously successful on All weather.
HAVANA GREY cemented his promise from running second first
time out to land the maiden at Ayr in very good fashion winning by 5 lengths
under Pj Mcdonald. He is a colt we think a lot about and could now have an
entry at Royal Ascot.
BURISHOOLE ABBEY was plagued with niggling issues after his
win last season put that all behind him to score second time out this year at
Ayr under Clifford Lee. That should have given the horse some confidence and we
hope he will improve from the run. It was a nice winner for long time
supporters of the yard Mr & Mrs Gittins.
RINARIA takes the maiden at Beverley ...
Mon, May 1, 2017
RINARIA takes the maiden at Beverley under a well judged ride by Jordan Vaughan on only her second racecourse start. She is improving all the time and should come on again for the run.
TWIZZELL got back in the winners enclosure back at Beverley where she won her maiden at two. She relishes the stiff five furlongs they have there and we were delighted to get a winner for owner John Dance. It was nearly a double for John & Jess when ROCKIN FELLA was narrowly denied after hanging across the track.
We have had plenty of placed efforts this last month with BORN TO BOOM, FEAR THE FURY & MADE OF HONOUR all running well in defeat. The season is starting to gear up now and we have plenty of horses ready to make an appearance especially when the rain comes.
