Huge congratulations to the McGrath family and their runaway winner of the bumper tonight at Newcastle, Ustica . Always travelling smoothly, Richie hit the front off the home bend and the result never looked in danger.
Richie purchased this horse unbroken and has done all the work at home riding him himself and this must give huge satisfaction. It also makes the stable bumper winners now 7 from 23 this NH season and therefore the percentage a whopping 33 percent win strike rate, exciting times with a yard full of lovely young horses. it was also good to see the well bred Ardenlee Lad running on strongly at the finish, he will definately come on for this and is still to furnish up into his frame.
Its now 8 winners since January 1st and hopefully another tomorrow- or two would be even better. The horses are in great form and very forwards in their coats. I have been up taking videos and photos to Sharp Hill today and here is a small selection of photos ahead of some uploaded videos the next couple of days.
