Friday April 20th

A good day yesterday at Cheltenham with all horses coming home safely. The heat was lovely for the spectators but hard work for the horses with such a dramatic weather change in such a short space of time. The racecourse staff worked very hard to cool off all the runners and our horses all handled it very well.

‘Socksy’ didn’t disgrace herself and would have liked the ground a bit softer. She has had an amazing season and deserves her break.

‘Oscar Rose’ and ‘Tashunka’ were very promising and finished really strongly. They are 2 mares to follow next season!!!

A brilliant turn out by The FOB Racing Partnership 3 who enjoyed a Cheltenham runner on their 2nd start!!!!! She ran a blinder to be a very close 6th in a field of 19!!

Today we have another busy day with runners at 3 meetings.

‘Ocean Cove’ runs in the 3:15 which is a Novice Handicap hurdle over 3 miles which he seems to want so we are excited to see that. Barry Geraghty is booked for the FOB Racing Partnership. They have enjoyed a season of all 2nd and 3rd placings so we feel ‘Ocean Cove’ deserves a win!!!! Everything crossed!!!!

The super consistent ‘Ocean Cove’

At Southwell we have 3 runners. All make their debut for us today-

‘Quantum of Solace’ runs in the 6:55 after a long lay off. She is a smart mare who shows a lot at home so we have high hopes for her. She runs in a 2 mile handicap hurdle.

‘Cosmic King’ then runs in a Novice Handicap Hurdle at 7:25. He is a gorgeous horse who has been waiting for better ground. He is owned by June and Tim Watts and we hope he is lucky for them today. Paddy rides the first two

‘Carrolls Milan’ then finishes off our runners in the Mares Bumper for Amateur and Conditional Jockeys. We purchased her from the Cheltenham sales for The Gud Times Partnership. Simon rides her today.

Our other runner is at Fontwell in the Bumper at 5:30. ‘RGB The Architect’ showed a lot of promise in his first bumper for us at Warwick and we hope that the better ground and shorter trip could help him. He is another for June and Tim Watts and he is ridden by Brendan Powell today.

This is our new purchase for The FOB Racing Partnership 4. We introduce ‘Liosduin Bhearna’ pronounced ‘Lisdoonvarna’ and we are very excited about him. He has settled well and he is ridden here by Simon.

We have already started the list for FOB5 so please look on our website for all the details and get involved. It’s affordable and great fun!!!!

Thanks for reading.
