Its the eve of Cheltenham but our sights are set on Sedgefield tomorrow as Tara Time bids to go one better then on her debut at
Perth last August. If she wins in good style we will be thinking about Aintree for her, the Listed Mares Bumper in which Lady Buttons JUST got beaten in a photo. This time next year we hope Lady Buttons might be a Cheltenham horse for us, if she comes back in good shape, we don’t believe we’ve seen the best of her yet. She is pictured here resting in the barn with her Owner/ Breeder, Jayne Sivills and she, like us, can’t wait to have her back in training next season.
Tara Time did little wrong on her debut and with the winner and fourth both winning novice hurdles the form has looked rock solid. Phil holds her in high regard and the only negative would be the softer ground she will encounter tomorrow. Her dam ran only once, beaten in a photo on heavy, so this looks promising and Kayf Tara’s certainly handle give in the ground. We hope she runs a very good race for the Philip Kirby Racing Partnership in the new black and red colours which will be good to pick out. The Racing Post and Atheraces make her favourite – but she doesn’t know that!
Just when we think we can’t be lucky enough to get another colt foal, Lady Chloe has had a flashy bay colt to make it 3 from 3 so far and all fit and healthy thank goodness. Below are some photos of ‘the foals of 2016’ So far!
