And So To Market Rasen

A full day of work and media and a review of our runners coming up this weekend.

Gordon Brown was in to film for Racing TV's This Racing Life feature and also to film Jaimie in preparation for the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards. There should be plenty of footage as the cameras were there for some schooling (Exit To Where, Mon Ami Bob and Speak Of The Devil) as well as the usual day…


Mumgos Debut Wins At Newcastle

A seventh chase win for the evergreen Mumgos Debut at Newcastle this afternoon made our day, and that of his owners, Peter and Suzy Brown. An honest chaser who has put his headstrong ways behind him, Mumgo battled in the home straight and a big leap at the last sealed the race for him. Peter and Suzy's first horse has been a star for them and he may have more to give on softer ground.

Emissaire is…


Monday Mornings And Pre Newcastle

A beautiful Monday morning to start the week and some fresh horses amongst the string as a few extras come back into work.

Kelso on Sunday saw Arizona Bound return to the track with a third placing and show some more enthusiasm once his confidence over the fences had been gained. A clever young horse he was shaken by a fall a few months ago and it was good to see him jump better as yesterday's…


Pre Kelso

The good going at Kelso has resulted in just two runners from the yard, while our other entries will need to wait for rain and soft ground.

Mint Gold has a good ground action and is gaining in strength all of the time. He came out of his last run well and while he needs more experience he is getting there mentally at home and we are looking for a solid run tomorrow. 

Arizona Bound…


Jaimie Duff In The Final Three Of The Dedication To Racing Stable Staff Awards

There can be no more deserving finalist than Jaimie Duff for the Dedication To Racing award in the Godolphin Stud and Stable Staff Awards. 

A mainstay in our yard since we started in 1995 she has covered all roles and is now our assistant trainer and travelling head girl. But, those titles can never cover all that she brings to the yard, from organisation, logistics, to horse care and to…


Ayr And Schooling

No winners at Ayr today for us but some heartening runs for the future. In particular, Katalystic showed improved form to be fourth in the handicap hurdle, coping well with the soft ground and looking ready for a longer trip and fences. Blaydon is still immature and is another who really needs three miles in time. 

Both our novice chasers Prince Dundee and Lost Frequency jumped well on their…


Pre Ayr

A bit of a quiet day at Musselburgh, Aurora Thunder was fourth in the bumper after setting the pace, unfortunately pulling hard. Once the sprint started in the home straight she kept on but could not remain compatitive; tactics will be changed next time. Urban Kode ran his usual game race but was outpaced in the back straight, and Max Liebermann ran more sweetly however the step up to three miles…


Pre Musselburgh

We have four at Musselburgh tomorrow, and we are hoping that a little bit of rain will help ease the already watered ground. Who would have thought it in January?

We start with The Road Home, a course winner last season who has had two runs over fences so far. He is a horse with plenty of scope, and we are hoping that the schooling that he has had recently will improve his jumping on the…


Royal Reserve Wins For Doddie

Congratulations to all of the London Scots For Doddie, the owners of Royal Reserve who won on stable debut this afternoon at Newcastle. Held up over two miles Royal sprinted home after the last, delighting his owners and earning more money for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Just a six year old but with lots of racing experience, Royal should be able to go on from here.

Our other runner,…


Pre Newcastle And New Staff On The Yard

We have just the two runners at Newcastle on Saturday after Grand Morning put in a sticky round of jumping at Wetherby today and will not take up his engagement tomorrow.

Royal Reserve will carry the hopes of the London Scots For Doddie, an enthusiastic group connected to London Scottish Rugby who donate all the prizemoney earned by their racehorse to the Doddie Weir charity, My Name'5 Doddie…
