We have a number of horses for sale and with the autumn season about to start it would be a good time to contact us if you would like to be involved.
We have three form horses all of whom are aimed at races in September, and they all look likely winners early on.
ARIZONA BOUND won last week at Perth and will try to follow up at the next Perth meeting. Just a six year old he has plenty…
The work continues to increase in intensity and volume and this past week has seen two good work days for the autumn horses. At Arlary and Kilduff the horses are gradually getting over the half fit over fresh stage and buckling down to some work. Their enthusiasm continues but it is a bit more controllable. Pictured is Misfits his eyes gleaming with happiness after a session jumping in the school.
It is always risky running a horse who is for sale but we had great faith in Arizona Bound and it was justified when he won the three mile handicap chase at Perth this afternoon. Making the running and jumping with enthusiasm he gave my father a well deserved winner; he remains for sale please contact us soon if you are interested; on today's showing he should be able to follow up and would be a…
We have five runners heading to Perth tomorrow for a sell out Saturday meeting.
Simone has found herself in the more competitive division of the three mile handicap hurdle for her first try at this longer trip.
Thepensionfund, under a new ownership group of Gerry MacGladery, Scu and Hywel Davies, makes his hurdles debut against an odds-on shot. He has been lightly raced but has…
We love upgrading the facilities at Lucinda Russell Racing; our biggest investment this year has been the water treadmill which has been a big hit since it arrived in March. We are learning all the time how to use it most effectively and we are staggered by the good applications that it has. One of the best bits is that we have two designated experienced members of staff, Ute and Carey who take…
We were keen to buy Elmono at the Goffs sales and indeed he is back at Arlary after we went to £30,000 for him. A talented tough hurdler he has shown us when schooling at home that he has the scope to go novice chasing and we have some nice targets for him in the early autumn. He is for sale and will be a super horse for someone; please contact me soon if you are interested. Elmono is pictured coming…
Time is passing and the batches of horses are going on to their next level of training. The horses in full training have a lull in racing as there is just Perth in a fortnight so we have time to regroup and either add in some zimming around the fields or a bit of fun schooling for them.
The pre trainers have completed a week at Arlary and have had their first bit of fast work, albeit at…
Pinspot was very green in his first bumper race but he stayed on well to be fourth. He has plenty more to learn but he has a great attitude and did all his best work at the end of the race. He is probably going to need a few more bumper runs before hurdling but long term he should be a three mile hurdler maybe round Musselburgh in the spring. He is pictured in the unsaddling enclosure
Perth really suits Boys On Tour, and he won again today for Foresight Racing under a confident front running ride by Stephen. Boys On Tour is just six years old but he is a consistent bold jumping type and he should win again under these conditions. In the same race Vinos Choice did himself no favours by pulling ferociously throughout, and although his jumping was sound he could not sustain his…
Having had such a marvellous warm summer we have been delighted to see the rain over the past few days. Despite the Perth team's watering system the ground at the racecourse was still sounding ominously firm, but it looks as if the weather gods have helped and we should have safe jumping ground over the next few days.
We have five runners at Perth.
Make It Happen and Hey Listen both run…
