Kilcullen Flem wins at Hexham

We saw a superb performance from Kilcullen Flem at Hexham today, Adam giving him a positive ride to dominate the race and grind the others into submission. This was a special win for Adam being his 100th winner – for us as it was our first run with the horse, always one you want to get right  – and for his Partnership, one of whom came up from Bristol to watch him. He was tired but fine after the race, and is back home now eating his tea. Meg lead both him and Allmyown up and they looked immaculate in the paddock.

It wasn’t the novice Allmyown’s day and Tommy wisely pulled him up when he got tired on his seasonal debut. There should however, be many good days out in the furure for him, he is a fine future chasing prospect who will appreciate better ground.

Back to the winners enclosure

We saw a good performance from Archippos at York, a close 5th under Paddy Aspell in a big field 2mile handicap. He stayed every yard of the extended trip and this opens up new avenues for him next year. Katie, who took him with Jenni, was delighted to win the £150 Best Turned Out award, which was presented to her in the paddock by Jack Berry.

At York we saw a good performance by Archippos in the ultra competitive 5pm 2 mile handicap – he was a close 5th under Paddy Aspell beaten less than 5 lengths. This opens up some good staying options for him next year, he appeared to get every yard of the trip. Katie and Jenni took him to York and Katie was delighted with her £150 best turned out award, presented to her by Jack Berry in the parade ring.
