LATEST UPDATE OCTOBER 2021:
We’re now up to 14 winners for the year thus far, continuing with the healthy 16% strike rate. We had a brilliant double at Redcar, when 2-year-old filly Sweet Madness, by Galileo Gold, won on handicap debut stepped up in trip to a mile. Freak Out, a Tattersall’s July HIT Sale recruit, then followed up her success, with a second career win at Redcar Racecourse, but this time up in trip to 1m2. Freak Out arrived a very fizzy horse, and has now transformed into a pretty cool, calm, collected character, which is a great credit to the team for turning him around. It’s now the time of year when things are starting to wind down, many flat courses have closed for the season, and the ground is mainly very wet from now onwards. A few horses will run on the all-weather, and we look forwards to the return of Elixsoft soon, who has won twice already this year. We have retired Sands Chorus and Elusive Heights, and will be looking for forever homes for them in the coming months.
We will be attending Tattersalls Yearling sales and Horses in Training sales this month, so if anyone has any orders, do please let us know! We are an expanding team and are looking to be training more younger horses next year. The healthy strike has not gone unnoticed this season, and we have new owners joining the team, with room for several more too so don’t miss out!
We opened to the public on Saturday September 18th, for the International Racehorse Week. We were joined by around 50 members of the public, from as far wide as Penrith and York. The weather was perfect and the crowd really enjoyed getting to meet the team, and see what happens behind the scenes at a racing yard. We hope this can become an annual fixture as it was a resounding success. It can only do the industry good to educate those without direct links to the sport, in the very highest levels of care that our horses receive.
