A manic morning at the yard with Racing UK joining us to take some footage of the horses schooling and on the gallops and to interview Fergal about our horses for this season. The string looked very smart in our trademark red uniform. Unbelieable sky over Naunton this morning as the cameras focussed on the schooling ground. The racing UK…

A lovely first win for ‘Five Go Racing’ as ‘Coolanly’ won the bumper in a very promising fashion at Chepstow yesterday. Richard Patrick rode him really well as he pulled hard in a handy position and kicked on in the final half a mile to win going away. The 5 year old son of ‘Fleminsfirth’ is very exciting.  Richard Patrick…

I really hate to show off but what a super double we had yesterday. I feel proud for all the team at home that are working so hard and keeping the horses fit and healthy.   I have kept huge faith in ‘Global Stage’ and he delivered yesterday. Paddy gave him a positive ride from the front where he loves…

Another brilliant day. You could say we were unlucky loosing the bumper yesterday in the stewards room but it just confirms that we have a nice mare on our hands in ‘Grageelagh Girl’. She travelled through the race like a good horse and some very slight interference just before the line caused the turnover in the result but it takes…

He has been working well and there looks…

Two good efforts yesterday. ‘Cheltenam De Vaige’ ran very well on his debut for us at Plumpton. He was giving a lot of weight to the winner and just failed by half a length. It was a dry promising run for the start of his season. Fern had a great day and also came 2nd in her pony race at…

A fantastic day yesterday with an across the card double!! ‘Iniesta’ started the day with a boom when he won the first race at Stratford. Ridden by  David Bass he put him into a great position down the back straight and gave him a very positive ride to urge him to the front turning into the home straight. He stayed…
