Corach Rambler Wins For The Second Time Over Hurdles

Corach Rambler is fast becoming a horse to dream about as he won his second three mile novice hurdle from three runs. Relaxed behind the leader, Derek produced our stayer at the last and stayed on to win by two and a bit lengths. Bought in the autumn Corach is proving to be a horse to dream about as he has all the attributes to be even better over fences. His owners The Ramblers have one place left,…


Ahoy Senor And Slainte Mhor Double Up At Ayr

In the autumn Goffs UK held two sales at Yorton Stud under strict social distancing rules. We bought the UK point to pointer Ahoy Senor after consultation with our UK pointing contacts and were delighted to secure him for a sensible price. A strong good moving type he had been well produced by Phil Rowley and we were delighted to see him win today at Ayr for Bruce and Carron Wymer. Being a big chap…


Ain't My Fault Wins At Newcastle

It was excellent to get back to the winners enclosure with Ain't My Fault who won the two mile novice handicap chase in determined fashion for Foresight Racing and Stephen. A headstrong type at home Ain't has not always had the strongest finish but Stephen has him nicely settled both at home and in his races and he finished off well. 

In the Eider we were over the moon with Haul Us In on…


Snow And A Quiet Return To Racing

We have had a bit of a steady time on the yard with snow and ice suspending racing then a few quiet runners since. 

The daily challenges from the snow were dealt with efficiently and effectively as the staff rallied together to keep the horses warm and exercised. With no racing we could concentrate on keeping the yard running and we were lucky to be able to keep the gallops open and in working…


Mighty Thunder Wins The Edinburgh National

Mighty Thunder won his third chase from four starts this afternoon when taking the valuable Edinburgh National at Musselburgh. Getting into a great rhythm and jumping economically, he stayed on well from the home turn to give his owners Allson Sparkle and jockey Blair Campbell a memorable win. This could be the start of an exciting staying chase career for Mighty, and for the yard he is an exciting…


Camp Belan Added To The Team

Still quiet on the racing front, although we had two runners in the jumpers bumpers at Newcastle yesterday with Book Of Invasions showing a return to form when fifth in an odd race, while Voix D'Eau did not relish the sand and we will change things around for him next time. 

At home, the weather continues to challenge us but sleet, high winds, and rain although uncomfortable, still allow…


The Waiting Game

Keeping the horses at peak fitness is something that we love doing but it is always frustrating when the weather intervenes and race meeting are flooded or frozen off. Losing Wetherby and Newcastle this morning is a double whammy coming on the back of Musselburgh, Kelso and Ayr fixtures lost to January weather. 

We do have entries at Sedgefield on Monday (currently frozen and standing water)…


Corach Rambler Wins On Stable Debut

Corach Rambler was bought by Scu at the Goffs Yorton sale in November and backed up his purchaser's confidence with a galloping win at Ayr today. Given time to get into his stride by Derek, Corach hurdled efficiently and stayed on up the home straight to win by three lengths. 

Corach is owned by a partnership including his breeder Paul Hills, and there are three shares available in him;…


Ice Snow Slush And At Last Some Runners

It has been a tough week for the staff with snow, slush and ice adding to the usual daily challenges, but we are used to such things and Bradley and Davy with the snow plough, salt spreader and rotavators have kept the gallops and roads open and all the horses have had ample work to keep them fit.

We had a few non runners at the start of the week, but are now ready for seven to run at Ayr…


Welsh National And More Racing

The Welsh National at Chepstow was on having had no snow and the frost sheets had kept the ground frost free, but had dried it so that it rode more like good to soft. Big River ran an honourable race in the conditions, outpaced but staying on to be eighth. He has a few more long distance targets this season and has returned home sound and in good spirits.

The snow and ice are thankfully…
