Nautical Nitwit wins in great style at Cartmel

We had a tremendous day at Cartmel yesterday with Adam Nicol getting his first winner back from injury in tremendous style. Nautical Nitwit was posting his biggest career win for The Birrafun Pship, and with a positive change of tactics and cheek pieces fitted, the ultra game gelding ran the best race of his life to net the £14,500 first prize on offer. It was shades of Goldan Jess who also won this race, and as he took up the running you could sense there would be no catching him round this unique track. Meg had a memorable day leading up her favourite horse and we look forward to the official photos but here are some lovely ones she took of him after the race.

Tired but happy!

Tekkibleu de l’Orme ran a much improved race for 3rd, and he should find an easier assignment than this as he was quite badly hampered when a horse fell in front of him on the bend. It was certainly a step in the right direction for the Blue Bresli 5 year old who will go chasing this Winter and is a horse owned by Phil & myself 🐎

It’s an exciting morning for Us and Co Owner John Hanson of Ace Bloodstock as our home bred yearlings by Fahhr and Brazen Beau go thorough the ring at Goffs Uk Premier Sale this morning. They’ve had plenty of viewings and we are feeling positive 🤞🏻

Two of the nicest yearlings we’ve had to sell – colts by Fahrr and Brazen Beau – this was them back in February – it’s their big moment today, photos to follow from the Sales 🍀

Later in the day we wish Owners, Resdev lots of luck with their recent winner, Pumaflor as he attempts to double up at Ripon, reunited again with Andrew Mullen. He’s a general 8-1 price in a competitive mile handicap.

A couple of nice photos I took yesterday of the horses hacking home from exercise….
