CAPLA DANCER scores on debut at 66-1!
The daughter of Red Jazz our cheapest of our two year old recruits showed her toughness when sticking her head out and battling a more experienced rival to land the Fillies Maiden at Ripon under Joey Haynes.

EDGED IN BLUE was another that defied big odds to land a win this time at Yarmouth for owners Zorka and Charles Wentworth ridden by Jordan Vaughan. 

TESTBOURNE ran another solid race at Yarmouth to finish second on ground probably a bit on the quick side for him.

HAVANA GREY a son of first season sire Havana Gold showed good early speed first time out at Nottingham to be narrowly denied on the line. He was left out in front on his own and the greenness showed as once the winner joined him he got going again through the line. He is a lovely colt and like most of ours will come on for the run.

The Middleham Open Day was on Easter Monday..
Wed, Apr 19, 2017
The Middleham Open Day was on Easter Monday and we had a good turnout up at Spigot Lodge with Quiet Reflection being a big attraction. She loves the attention so was very happy to see her fans flocking In. Racing Welfare had then organised a fun afternoon with yard competitions and both our teams did exceptionally well winning three events and going clear in the showjumping.

On the runners front we have had our first few two year olds runners ROCKIN FELLA finished third for the second time at Musselburgh following up on his promising run at Redcar.

MARSH STORM was narrowly denied when getting third place first time out at Newcastle for owner John Dance at his local track.

UNFORTUNATELY made his debut at racing head quarters in what looked a very hot maiden and we were delighted to see him run a promising race in 5th place.

We have plenty of two year olds coming along and will be ready to race shortly.
COPPER BAKED first time out this season ...
Wed, Apr 12, 2017
COPPER BAKED first time out this season broke her maiden under a strong ride from Joey Haynes at Southwell, she will benefit from a step up in trip and will hopefully see her out on the turf soon.

TESTBOURNE first time on turf ran a cracking race under a front running ride from Jordan Vaughan to finish second. The backward son of Big Bad Bob took a while to mature but has been going the right way and will keep progressing.

LADY CRISTAL ran another consistent race on the all weather this time at Lingfied with the talented Josephine Gordon on board and just got collared close home.

ROCKIN FELLA was our first two year old runner of the season and we were very pleased to see him run a very respectable third place at Redcar under PJ Mcdonald. All our two year olds usually come on for the run and he may be seen out again quickly.

LADOFASH gets off the mark at Wolverhampton
Wed, Apr 5, 2017
LADOFASH gets off the mark at Wolverhampton under Pj Mcdonald. We were delighted that Ladofash got his head in front for owner John Dance, he has ran some consistent races in defeat and deserved to get a win under his belt.

RINARIA ran a very credible race first time out to finish second under Jordan Vaughan at Wolverhampton, she is a lovely filly who was a bit weak at two so we didn't rush her and hopefully that has proved the right decision with her putting a great effort in first time out at three years of age.

DOUBLE ON THE DAY at Newcastle with MUSIKEL the son of Frankel making his debut for us winning well under yard apprentice Jordan Vaughan we have had him since the new year and have been pleased with the way he has strengthened and come on since joining us, hopefully there is more to come and he keeps Frankel's amazing strike rate up. The second leg of the Double was MAN ABOUT TOWN who was also making it two consecutive wins under Clifford Lee who gets a very good tune out of him. He was stepping upto seven furlongs but stayed the six furlongs last time out well and obviously relishes the track at Newcastle he will now run on turf and hopefully continue to progress.

NICK VEDDER first time handicapping broke his maiden in gutsy style fending off the short priced favourite to win by a length and three quarters ridden by the excellent Clifford Lee. He is a horse we have always thought a lot about at home and were disappointed with him first time out however he seems to have got his confidence and can hopefully move onwards and upwards after that win.
MIDNIGHT MAN ran a solid race in third first time out this season at Southwell staying on nicely.

MADE OF HONOUR ran a very pleasing debut to finish second at Doncaster and she will have learnt a lot from that experience.

TIMELESS ART also ran very well first time out this year and will benefit from being stepped back upto one mile again. Few pics attached for you to put near relevant article don't have to be big just trying to put a few in to make it a bit more interesting.
