We’ll try our best to keep you posted with all the updates from the yard throughout the season. Our blogs will be short and sweet because who has time to write or read more than 140 characters these days. You can expect to see something new at least once a month - we promise!
Summer Racing + Goff Sales
We’re back racing! We started out at Stratford a couple of weeks ago now (time just flies!), we were happy enough with our youngsters who are getting some hurdle experience and will be seen in their best light once they’re able to contest handicaps.
The Major and Exit Plan have been waiting for the better ground and will run through the Summer, both will have come on for their runs fitness wise however unless they show something promising on their next couple of starts they will be looking for new careers in the Autumn.
Tipalong Tyler has an entry for next week and we’re hoping that stepping up to 3 mile on better ground will bring the improvement that she needs to be competitive.
We were lucky enough to come home with four horses from the Goffs Summer sale last week, all for existing owners and we look forward to getting to know them over the next few weeks. Three of the horses are 3yo stores and so will spend the next few weeks being broken before having a quick break. They have nice pedigrees and so far they seem to have a good attitude to work so fingers crossed! The route they will take will depend on how they come together and what ability they show as they progress, but at the moment the 4yo point to point route seems to be an obvious starting place - Neil will be pleased! We also purchased Dysania, an unraced 5yo who has been in training but being a big horse has taken time to come together and will look to have his first start in the Autumn.
It’s July and we’re back up and running - our first horses will be back on track early next week and we can’t wait.
We have a handful of “good ground” horses who came in early to take advantage of the better ground during late summer / early autumn. The majority of our National Hunt horses are all making their way back in now so we’ll be back to “normal” by the end of the month. The Point to Pointers won’t return until September time despite some debate about the season starting in October. We have a couple that could possibly look at running at the early scheduled meetings but if they don’t go ahead then they could reroute and to run Under Rules.
We haven’t been able to get any sales yet due to Covid-19, they’ve all been postponed and rescheduled but we’ve studied the catalogues and are looking forward to purchasing a couple more newbies when we’re let loose in the ring!
We have a few shares for sale of horses who are in training and will be ready to go shortly. Take a look on our ownership page which explains the different types of ownership we offer and the horses we have for sale at the moment, please take a look as there are some nice opportunities for fun syndicate shares.
