Factor Fifty schooling ahead of his run at Huntingdon tomorrow

Factor Fifty schooling ahead of his run at Huntingdon tomorrow

Our runner this weekend is The Topspec Partnership’s ‘Factor Fifty’ who runs over 3m 1f at Huntingdon tomorrow in a competitive handicap hurdle. He has been placed but yet to win this season, hopefully he has dropped to a mark he is capable of getting his head in front from, and he certainly looks in top order- schooling well as usual yesterday under Adam.

We have a full house of 45 being ridden out and we are all really excited for the jumps season ahead. One of our youngsters had his first look at the baby hurdles yesterday – Rich Man Poor Man ( Big Rob) who jumped them carefully behind Chloe’s Image with Lee who gave him a lead.

Chloe is about ready to run, she s going to resume over hurdles and has been off the track a long time with various  leg issues – we just hope we can get a clear run with her now.

Monday sees the Yogi Breisner course taking place here so we will be bringing further schooling photos that evening – It promises to be an informative morning.

Some photos from the yard yesterday…

We have got plenty of horses entered next week – and two Partnership fillies likely to be running are Tara Time at Ludlow in a bumper on Wednesday and the flat debut of Enlighten Me up at Ayr on Thursday. Our daughter Izzy will be riding at Horse of the Year show on Thursday too so its an exciting week.  We got in the HOYS mood last night with a bit of showjumping….. We are sure you are going to enjoy this video when it makes it to youtube later.
