Weekend News

Tommy & Skipthescales

Just the one runner today but a good one – Skipthescales won 3 times for us and his Owners, Les & Mo Richards last season. He runs today in the first at Aintree with regular jockey Tommy on board, and we are pretty sure that Les, who we have very sadly recently lost, will be looking down and cheering him on. He runs now for The Richards family and and we hope he has another excellent Winter for them. Today the ground won’t be his ideal surface  – the softer the better for Skip, but it will be lovely jumping ground and its a great track to make a start.

Its a very busy week ahead – we have horses entered everywhere and we are looking forward very much to Wetherby next Friday and Satuday with the likes of Lady Buttons, Nautival Nitwit and Wemyss Point possible Saturday runners.

Tomorrow sees the start of the 4 days Tattersalls Horse in Training Sales at Newmarket. Two horses will be heading there from our yard, we are always sad to see them go but they are fit, running and ready for action for somebody else – multiple winner ‘Good Time Ahead’ and recent Redcar 2nd ‘I’m yer Man’. Phil has orders for a couple of very nice horses, and we will be briging you the updates from Newmarket throughout the week.

Good Time Ahead wins at Chester this season
