Thomas Blossom wins again at Exeter

Two years on from his first success over hurdles, Thomas Blossom won the same amateur riders’ race to record his second win over timber, Josh Newman once again doing the steering. Held up in the early stages, he made good progress approaching the home turn and, sent on at the second-last, he kept on galloping resolutely to […]


Zoffany bolts up at Brighton

Zoffany Bay looks a progressive individual and, after two good placed efforts, he got back to winning ways on his fifth start since joining us with an impressive, wide-margin success at Brighton under Silvestre de Sousa. Quickly away, Silvestre settled him on the rails, tracking the leaders, before making his move approaching the three-furlong pole.  Travelling strongly into the […]


Let’s Be Happy doubles up

Let’s Be Happy is in the form of her life at present and the daughter of Mastercraftsman supplemented her claiming success at Wolverhampton last time with a handicap win over the same course and distance in the hands of the very capable 7lbs claimer Tom Greatrex. Though perhaps a little keen through the early stages, she was always […]


He’s Our Star wins at Chepstow

He’s Our Star is progressing very nicely and he added to his Newbury win in June with a comfortable success at Chepstow yesterday in the hands of Harry Bentley. Sent off a warm favourite, Harry did well to get him some cover in the early stages and he travelled very sweetly through the contest.  He did take […]


Let’s Be Happy bolts up at Wolverhampton

Let’s Be Happy has taken time to find her feet since joining us last autumn, but the application of first-time blinkers clearly worked at Wolverhampton yesterday, as she travelled sweetly and quickened well to win the claimer in great style under Tom Marquand. It was a good effort off top weight and, though the handicapper will […]


Amanto give us a first Epsom winner

Amanto is a really consistent performer and a perfect syndicate horse for his owners Shaw Racing, reaching the frame on 11 of his 16 starts since being purchased for just £8,000 at Doncaster in August 2016.  However, he was overdue another win and we were delighted to see him register that at Epsom yesterday evening in […]


He’s Our Star wins at Newbury

  Having been disqualified after passing the post first at Windsor in April, He’s Our Star belatedly got off the mark with a narrow success in a competitive handicap at Newbury yesterday under Tom Marquand for owners Jayne French and Jacqueline Pilling. Purchased as a yearling for a bargain €5,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland sale, he […]


A Chepstow double!

The horses have been in fine form in recent months, so we have felt more than a little hard done by not to have recorded more winners since the New Year.  However, the tide appears to have turned in our favour, with Drewmain Legend and Ardmayle combining to give us a double today, making it three wins in two […]


Heresmynumber wins again

Heresmynumber has been in great form of late and the son of Kalanisi made it two wins from his last three starts when winning at Sedgefield yesterday under promising 5lbs claimer Lorcan Murtagh. A close second at Fakenham last week, a reproduction of that effort looked sure to give him a big chance of going […]


Ardmayle Wins Again

Our horses have been running really well over the past few weeks with lots of seconds and thirds so were delighted to have a change of fortunes. We’re delighted that ARDMAYLE changed that with his third victory in less than a year and his second victory at Leicester on Wednesday under Josh Newman who claimed […]

They twisted my arm to have a share in a horse,  what great fun it’s been. They’re professionalism and incredible work ethic will I’m sure see them grow from strength to strength, certainly an up and coming team and I’ve loved every minute of it!
