Tuesday 6th September
We saddle two runners in the 4.50 at Redcar today – Triple for the
Redhotgardogs & Cavalieri for the Wyatt and Marshall families – both geldings great characters in our yard. We think both have good each way chances, they are below their last winning marks and are well at home. Cavalieri is yet to find his form – possibly a return to the AW will do this – but he has won on turf and is still capable. Triple has been running right up to his mark over hurdles with two recent photo finish 2nds, he deserves to get his head in front this season and he has been stretching Katy’s arms a few inches up the gallop this week, he is really loving his work.
Some further photos from the gallop at the weekend….
Everything is going to plan with Bertie above,a £41,000 euro purchase at The Landrover Goffs Sale. We have just made his entry in the £200,000 Landrover Bumper Final in Ireland next Spring. Let’s hope he is capable of running in that class of race, there is no reason why not and Phil said on Sunday he will be very disappointed if he is not up to winning his bumper as he looks a very capable individual and does everything so easily, he wished he had a yard full like him.
Phil will not be at the races today as he is at Doncaster Sales with a couple of potential orders: I will be bringing news from the sales later today, and maybe news of horses heading to Green Oaks this evening. Its first day back at school for our girls today ( although i managed to turn up with them a day early yesterday when it was teacher training) , they have had a fantastic first summer at our new home and a great time with their ponies out and about at shows, races & pony club. Izzy now has Horse of the Year Show to look forward to with our fantastic pony Freddie. She competes with him on the 6th October. Indy is getting ready to take over on him next year now Izzy is getting so tall and we have found a nice young bigger pony for Izzy To bring on over the winter.
