Early start for us – first lot ridden, then off to DBS sales whilst the yard is left in Ben’s capable hands.
Unfortunately a soggy Newcastle has failed to pass the early inspection this morning leaving us in a dilemma with Brae On. He now has been due to run twice and both times have been abandoned due to frost or rain. This British weather really does have a lot to answer to!! We are now looking at travelling further a field in search of a staying hurdle and a decision will be made over what to do once we have discussed options with the West Coast Racing club.
Romany Ryme is entered and planning to head to Catterick on Friday in a 0-125 handicap contest over the 3 mile 1 furlong trip. Romany Ryme has never let us down and has been hammered by the handicapper as a consequence of his consistency. This is a step up in class for him but we hope he puts his best foot forward and does us proud yet again.
Mister D is nearing ready for a run, he has been having an easy time due to a bad dose of colic and we wanted to give him plenty of time to recover. He is well in himself at home on the gallops and we hope to have him back out soon.
Innis Shannon is back into training with a bang, she never fails to give Jonathon a quiet minute and keeps him up to his work every morning with her antics. She has a tough determined attitude both in the stable and on the gallops.
The Southdean Racing Club is planning to take Cumbrian Farmer to Musselburgh’s next meeting in search of better ground, he is grand within himself are improving all the time. We are in no rush with this gelding as he a chasing type who prefers a sounder surface, the plan is to lightly race him so he can keep going over the summer months with a novice chase campaign. Joanna may have to be booked to ride him again though as a 2 mile 3 amateur ladies contest round Catterick has caught our eye!! Shares are still available in this exciting racing club who now have two horses in training please contact Victoria for details.
