It always gives great satisfaction when a long term plan comes off

Archiposs as a yearling

Archiposs as a yearling

….Phil bought Archiposs at the sales as a yearling for Castleton Bloodstock – he wasn’t quite ready to run as a 2 year old so was kept back for a 3 year old career and he looks nicely progressive now showing a really likeable attitude in this 8f maiden. With a mixture of speed and stamina in his pedigree, he doesn’t look as though a further step up in trip would  inconvenience him and the manner in which he kept battling on and sticking his neck out was the most pleasing aspect – PJ Macdonald giving him a lovely ride and a good winning interview on Racing UK.

PJ is back on board for us tomorrow at Hamilton – this time partnering Whitchurch in the 1m 4f handicap. There are only 6 decs and the predicted rain should not be a problem for him. Phil is back for another tasty Owners & Trainers lunch at the Scottish track tomorrow and another winner would be most welcome.

imageArchiposs wasn’t the only winner from Green Oaks this week, our daughter Izzy’s pony ‘Freddie’ took first place at The Great Yorkshire Show and earned a much coveted qualification to the Horse of the Year Show in October. As usual, the classes were huge at arguably The countries  most prestigious agricultural County show – its the one everybody wants to win. Younger sister Indy took 3rd place in the lead rein Class in the main ring this morning.
