LATEST UPDATE NOVEMBER 2021:
The turf season ’21 has drawn to a close and we’re currently on 15 winners for the year thus far, maintaining the healthy 16% strike rate throughout. Highlights of the season include 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 her success also up in trip, to 1m2. Sweet Madness followed up her Redcar win, with another handicap victory at Nottingham over 1 mile and half a furlong next time out. The older horses had a fantastic year too, with Sands Chorus winning four times at Redcar Racecourse, and Strawman winning three races on the bounce, followed up by a second in the Skybet Sunday Series at Haydock Park. Tangled won two races for the second year running, including the Carlisle Bell Consolation Race.
We’ve had a very busy sales season, with no less than eight new horses added to the yard. There are four yearlings; two colts and two fillies, and four two-year-old’s; one colt and three fillies. The yearlings were bought from Tattersalls Book Three and Goffs Autumn Yearling Sale, and the two-year-olds all from Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale. Shares in these horses have been selling very fast! There are just a few shares still available, further details of which can be found on the ‘Horses For Sale’ tab.
There are several two-year-olds still running at present, and a few of the older horses. Although there are less runners there is still plenty of work to be done, including breaking in the new yearlings. It’s an exciting time of year, with bold aspirations for next season on the horizon, while many of the horses take a well-earned break.
