Fri 23rd…

We are very nearly ready with our row of 10 new stables, and it is a good job as the horses are waiting for their lodgings for the winter!

Sorry boys but todays post is all about the mares!!!

We have a strong and exciting team of horses looking forwards to the start of the proper winter NH 2019/20 season ahead. As well as our established stars such as Lady Buttons and Top Ville Ben amongst others who will hopefully pick up where they left off last season, we also have some good young prospects coming through such as Rayna’s World due to go novice hurdling and bumper mare Theflickeringlight – a point winner. We seem to do well with our mares, not least of course Lady Buttons who finished last season as the UK’s Best British Bred Hurdler & Chaser.

We have the well bred Milanvera, half sister to a Grade 2 winning chaser who has a new owner for her coming season and we look forwards to her going novice hurdling. Other mares to look forwards to this coming season include bumper winners Fingereater and Dares To Dream who has come back looking stronger for a break.

DARES TO DREAMAlso Lady Kyria and Lady Camelot – both mares hurdle winners and will be handicapping this time. Also the likes of Iconic Belle, Desaray Girl, Fading Icon, Misscarlett – made a good start novice hurdling for 3rd, L’Attendue our Oscar mare – a novice hurdle winner who is likely to go chasing this time, and of course not forgetting our partnership mares Northern Girl hoping to win another contesting handicapping and Fille d’Avignon looking forwards to her first season on track.
