We’ll try our best to keep you posted with all the updates from the Point to Point scene and all the runners we have!
Winners, winners and more winners!!
17th April 2023
The yard is in red hot form and we have sent out several winners which is extremely pleasing for all owners and the hard working team at home.
Sixteen Letters took the Ladies Open at Cotley on the 25th March under Natalie Parker. It was brilliant to get Letters' head back in front. He is a horse who loves his job. Natalie rode Between You And Me the following day at Larkhill, where he finished 3rd.
We then missed a weekend due to ongoing rain but picked off where we left over the Easter Weekend, sending out 6 runners and having 4 winners and a 3rd. Easter Saturday saw Paloma Blue take the Mixed Open at Dunsmore in impressive style, having made all and never saw another rival. Bang On Target followed up her Hunt Race win and took the Restricted, also at Dunsmore. Tigga Time headed to Trebudannon on Easter Monday and won on debut with Darren Andrews in the saddle. Between You And Me finally got his head infront at Cothelstone and won his Restricted under Josh by a neck.
We decided to try our luck at Aintree in the Foxhunters with Sixteen Letters and Josh onboard. Letters uncharacteristically fell, but I'm pleased to report, Letters is in one piece having galloped away unscathed. Josh is quite sore, so is having to sit on the sidelines for a couple of weeks.
Will Biddick and Darren Andrews stood in for Josh over the past weekend. Stratton Oakmont won his Restricted at Flete under Will in fine fashion. The following day, Paloma Blue took the local Hunt Race and new recruit, Hearts Corner (pictured), took the Maiden both under Darren at Cotley. The yard looked booked for a treble when Donny's Fortune was in splendid isolation coming to the 3rd last but unfortunately fell when he got stuck in the mud on landing side. Both Donny and Will were fine.
Fingers crossed the good form continues.
Yard in form!
21st March 2023
We have had several runners Pointing over the previous few weeks and luckily lots of winners and placings.
Between Me and You ran at Larkhill (26th Feb) after his seasonal debut at Milborne. He finished 2nd on this occasion and also ran at Cothelstone (11th March) to finish 2nd beaten 3/4 length.
Wise Guy (pictured) made his debut at Buckfastleigh in the Point To Point Bumper. Guy was brought at Goffs Land Rover Sale last summer along with JD Moore and Shannon Lodge Racing. He won easily by 5 lengths under Josh. It was great to have our first 4 year old on the track and even better that it was a winner!
Bang On Target has become a little yard star notching up her second win of the season when taking the East Devon Hunt Race in fine fashion after finishing 2nd at Charlton Horethorne the week before in the Restricted.
Paloma Blue also ran at Charlton Horethorne, where he finished 2nd but got back into the winners spot at Milborne in the Conditions when winning by 15 length.
Donnys Fortune made his seasonal debut and finished a pleasing 3rd having needed the run.
A new recruit to the yard, Our Dylan, made his debut at Milborne over fences for the 4Racing Syndicate (shares available). He jumped and travelled well to finish 4th, being just pipped for 3rd. Dylan will have a few more runs in Points before switching to Hurdling for the summer.
