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! 


Back Pointing!

22nd November 2022

The new Point to Point season has crept upon us and we have had a few runners already. We have plenty of new and old faces to run and a handful of 3 year olds that came from the Store Sales. The 3 year olds could be anything, they have all schooled over fences and are working away nicely ready for a short holiday over the Christmas period. 


New recruit, Bang On Target made her stable debut at Great Trethew a couple weeks ago. After a circuit she unfortunately pulled too hard down the hill and became lit up going into the next fence where she landed on it and gave Josh no chance. She put her wrongs to rights at Dunsmore, where after being dropped out, she settled in her own group and jumped well to finish 4th in Maiden. A big step in the right direction. 


Also at Dunsmore, Lucky Lara ran very well to finish 2nd in the Restricted behind a horse who beat none other then Boothill (OR147) in his Irish Maiden win. She enjoyed the softer going which we never had the chance to run her on last season! 


Paloma Blue also made his stable debut at Dunsmore in the Conditions Race. Another extremely encouraging run to get get collared on the line by a horse who had already had a run this season. There is plenty of fun to be had with Blue this season and there are still SHARES AVAILABLE in his Picnic Syndicate! 


Lou shows No Risk with his ability!

6th June 2022

Yesterday saw the last runner from Blackmore Farm for the Point to Point season, head to Bratton Down. No Risk With Lou was not to be out done by stable mate, Donny’s Fortune, who won at the same track two weeks ago. Given an extremely patient ride by Josh, Louie was dropped right out at the rear to settle and be given plenty of daylight to see his fences. Louie fell at Cothelstone three weeks prior when looking the winner at three out. He was none the worst for his tumble and jumped the last fence in 5th and flew up the long Bratton hill to win by a short head in a time which was 21 seconds faster than the Ladies Open.A pleasing day for all, Josh rode another winner making it a double on the day and 20 winners for the season which is a seasonal best for Josh and a target he was keen to hit before the end of the season. Umberleigh is the last meeting of the season on Saturday and a last chance to see the regular point to point faces until the new season rolls on in October.
