Happy New Year

 In Latest News


2016 is well under way and hopefully there is much to look forward to.
We have had five runners so far this year.  Two seconds (Magic Garden Lingfield and Classic Mission Lingfield) and a third (Genuine Approval Lingfield).  Genuine Approval is a new horse to us having been bought very cheaply at the Horses In Training Sale in October, unraced ex David Simcock for new owners Allan McWilliam and Clifford Parnell.  Allan is not actually new as he was the original owner of Balmoral Castle with us a few years ago.  The hope is that his new filly proves as good as Balmoral Castle!
We will be quiet on the jumping front but Albert Herring has made a promising start to his hurdling career with four runs and four places.  He requires better going so is turned out on holiday.  Uncle Pettit has just started back cantering after a long injury enforced layoff since his last run which was a victory at Worcester.  He can hopefully return to chasing in the late spring.
Most of the flat horses are back in from their winter breaks.  We have 18 older horses, 19 three year olds and so far 17 two year olds olds.  Some of the two year olds are still for sale or syndication so do please contact us for more information.
Of the older horses we hope Balmoral Castle can continue his steady improvement and maybe appear again at Glorious Goodwood.  Pasaka Boy is back after a nasty fracture in 2014.  Monsieur Rieussec has a lot to prove after a poor season in 2015 but has the potential to be much better.  His sister Maybelater is back in training this year and can hopefully do well in Listed company.
Of this year’s three year olds Poster Girl looked like she was going to be an interesting 10f prospect to look forward to.  Art Echo potentially has some improvement in him.  Equistar likewise.
Of the two year olds we are delighted to have Maybelater’s brother by Nathaniel.  He is owned by Laurence Bellman who is new to us this year.  It is too early to say which are the ones to look out for.  All of them hopefully!
