We have two lovely young horses, both chasing types, for sale.
Run Rocky Run, pictured, is a four year old by Vertical Speed. He has done six months steady work and is now in full training and will make his bumper debut in the spring. He is 16.2hands high, moves extremely well and has a very hardy attitude. There are 12.5% shares and one 25% share available. You will be joining a three person partnership…
A clear cut first win over hurdles for Superior Command at Musselburgh today gave us our first win for the British Racing Club. It had been a steady start to the season for Superior Command and, having looked hesitant at his fences first time out, he was running a good race at Uttoxeter last time before falling two out. Having had plenty of schooling he looked confident today and his three length win…
Urban Kode and Pulpitarian ran blinders in the two mile three handicap hurdle, coming second and third respectively; see the photofinish photograph above. Both took this step up in class well and enjoyed the good ground and should be able to continue their good form later round Musselburgh, and through the spring and summer. In the same race Thorpe was outpaced leaving the back straight but stayed…
Mumgos Debut's fall at the last when looking in command of the race at Uttoxeter was a big disappointment but thankfully both he and Grant both got up and although battered they are bright and sound. Mumgos looks equally effective over both two and two and a half miles and there are more good races to be won with him.
At home the weather is pretty wet and dark; first lot this morning was…
Despite the rain and wind the weather has been relatively kind to us this winter, and given us every opportunity to school and work on the grass gallops and no frozen pipes and ice..yet. We have been taking advantage of this and the horses have loved cantering round the fields at Kilduff as well as their usual work on the woodchip gallops. On the home page is a video of second lot last Wednesday,…
Marcus Antonius, pictured, bounced back to form with a win at Kelso this afternoon. Held up as ever he took advantage of the strong pace and won well under Blair. He coped with this better grade of race and seems in good form with himself. He may run under a penalty in the next week.
In the same contest, Alizee De Janeiro looked to gain confidence through the race, despite being unsettled…
A very happy Christmas to everyone who follows and supports us!
We have had a couple of days of stormy and wet weather but the enthusiasm of the team is undimmed and we have had plenty of nice bits of work from the horses. At Kilduff we have been schooling on the grass most days, including the novice Haul Us In over hurdles and the pre race horses; Itstimeforapint, Island Heights, Alizee…
There were more cowboys than usual on the yard last night and this morning as the yard partied hard to the theme of the Wild West at the Grouse And Claret restaurant.
After prosecco, sponsored by the Two Golf Widows, there was a delicious meal and then the star of the night, Ronnie Reed and his mate Raymond had the room singing, dancing and laughing. During the week Ronnie helps us with…
A flurry of visitors were at the yard today to see their horses and to give presents to the staff.
John and Liz Johnston and Thomas Kendall came to watch 'Rocky' have his first canter up the woodchip on a work morning. A three year old who loves his work, Rocky is coming on well and should be on the track in the spring.
Also here were Ronnie and Loraine Young who's Katalystic had…
A preparation day for the horses to get them ready to work tomorrow and a morning on the yard for Tess from the Dick Vet to assess and treat some of the horses. We have a number being aimed at races next week and the week after.
One For Arthur will be taken out of the Welsh National tomorrow morning. He is in good form but we, along with his Two Golf Widow owners, have decided to go for…
