We are pleased to say we have sold the Flemensfirth filly to stay on our yard, so she is an exciting prospect for bumpers next year. She will run in the colours of The Gathering and The Gathered who had success with Cool Operator.

Doing their roadwork at Castleton now are the four geldings Full Speed, Stormy Morning, Triple Eight and the evergreen yard superstar, Goldan Jess. He is back in training for his 6th year with us and his main aim will be  valuable The Crystal Cup at Cartmel again, he will be sure to team up with his favourite jockey Kyle James again in the summer.

Transient Bay ran a sound enough race yesterday at Hexham, Adam felt he didn’t stay the 3 miles, but he jumped and travelled as well as he did at Ayr latest and there was again hope that he is going the right way now. He tried hard and finished pretty tired but is sound and ate his tea up last night. Some pictures from the races….
