Saturday’s News & Winner

FIRCOMBE HALL gleams under the Newcastle lights

He’s been a hardy little racehorse all year & the Ace Bloodstock bred ‘Fircombe Hall’ gained a deserved first 2 year old success in the 6f Handicap at Newcastle last night under a beautiful waiting ride from top jockey, Hollie Doyle. Winning in the colours of The Redhotgardogs, this was a really pleasing win for all concerned as ‘Chesney’ has grown up here since arriving from stud with his dam, Marmot Bay.

Adelphi Sprite made his racecourse debut in the bumper at Sedgefield and he ran a race with promise to finish 4th in pretty wet conditions. His half brother Adelphi Prince had run a sound race at Southwell 2 days previously.

We have a busy Saturday at home and the races for our hard working Team today – Plenty of runners at Wetherby & 1 at Aintree –  with rules debuts for the young horses, First Illusion & Splashing. Best of luck to all connections, our shortest priced runner of the day is ‘Kings Cave’ having his first Chasing start in the hands of Tommy Dowson.
