Winter is here, with the darker nights and colder weather back again. This hasn’t stopped us though, still riding out everyday in all weather conditions to get the best out of each horse.
We had a good few horses making their hurdling debut of the last few weeks as we have quite a young team of horses currently. This is an exciting time seeing how they go and we were very happy with how they all went. Schiehallion Ridge and Scullys Forge were in the same race at Ayr and both put in a solid effort in a large field, neither of them will be 2 mile horses but its good starting point for them and educates them in whats to come.
It was then off to Newcastle with Drogon in a 7f on the all weather. He ran well in the front until the others started to come closer to him. He is now having a holiday to mature. We then headed up to Ayr with Whoa Black Betty making her hurdles debut, she ran a cracking race. She jumped away neatly and showed real promise throughout, she finished up in 6th but wasn’t far off the placings.
We welcomed another new horse to the yard, The Great Georgie. He’s a fine type and ran at Ayr in the bumper on the same day as Whoa Black Betty before making his way up to us. He is having a short break as he likes the softer ground and so should be up and going soon. If anyone is interested in having a share or any ownership options in either of our newest horses please get in touch.
