Fri 2nd Aug…
We cant quite believe its August already and we are very much underway with the winter NH horses all in and started on their exercise to rid them of the holiday weight. We are still busy with the flat runners too with two out tomorrow in the shape of Alsvinder at Thirsk and newcomer to the yard Gold Venture heading to Newmarket.
Alsvinder ran a much improved race for second last time out and we hope this handsome colt can go one better tomorrow at Thirsk for owners Alan & David Fairhurst, ridden by David Nolan.
New 2 year old filly, Gold Venture
Gold Venture is a very recent addition to the yard after being claimed in a seller at Catterick less than two weeks ago. We bet she was glad to find her new home only being 2 mins drive away after the races! She has won twice and we look forwards to her first run under the new ownership of the RedHotGardogs at Newmarket tomorrow with jockey Jimmy Quinn. Best of luck to both runners, riders and all connections – come home safe.
Tommy Dowson found himself heading off to Germany last Thursday for two rides for top trainer Christian Von de Recke, sadly no winners this time but still a fantastic experience for him – well done Tommy, just dont make a habit of it…we want you to stay!
