Sunday February 11th
A good end to the week as ‘Barrakilla’ won the hunter chase at Bangor on Friday. Zac baker gave him a lovely ride and he finished well considering he has had nearly 2 years off.
‘Barrakilla’ passing the post at Bangor to win for Angela and William Rucker.
‘Red Hot Chilly’ ran a blinder at Chelmsford. He was a very close 3rd only beaten a length. He is getting closer to a win and he has a race planned at Kempton next week.
Me and Daisy watched Chelmsford from home after school!!! Daddy got a Matt Chapman interview!!
Yesterday ‘Lovely Job’ didn’t run due to the ground going too soft throughout the afternoon so he was loaded up in the lorry and taken home.
‘Ocean Cove’ ran a nice race at Uttoxeter to come 3rd. With only 4 runners it was always going to end up tactical affair in the heavy ground conditions. He jumped very well but they went very slowly for the first 3/4 of the race and then sprinted turning into the home straight which just didn’t test his staying power which he has tonnes of.
FOB racing Partnership before the race. They haven’t had a run out of the winners enclosure all season.
‘Ocean Cove’ looking amazing in the paddock.
One runner today at Exeter. ‘Time To Move On’ runs in the bumper at 5:10. Barry Geraghty takes the ride again as he won on him over C&D very impressively in December. We hope he can do the same again with a penalty.
‘Time To Move On’ in the winners enclosure after his amazing first run before Christmas.
We enjoyed a busy morning at the yard yesterday.
A fab cheese cake baked by Emma to celebrate our 50th winner!!!!
No runners tomorrow.
