Melody storms home for Lingfield success

An agonising 12 minutes after the horses passed the post in the 7f handicap at Lingfield Park yesterday, Storm Melody was thankfully called the winner of a three-way photo (pictured right), getting off the mark on just his second start on the All-Weather for his owners in the Shaw Racing Partnership 2. A bargain purchase for just £2,800 […]


Grant helps propel Castle Piece into a new era

Our new barn has now been completed at Castle Piece Stables and we couldn’t be happier with the end product. A grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development was instrumental in the undertaking of the project in the first instance and will allow us to grow the business, leading to increased numbers of […]


Booborowie bounces back to winning ways

Booborowie had been running creditably on the flat in recent months, placing twice during the summer, but he looked potentially well-handicapped back over hurdles and, despite a couple of sketchy jumps on the way round, he got off the mark over hurdles at the fifth time of asking at Leicester yesterday under Andrew Tinkler. Held up in […]


Blossoming Tom makes it two in a row!

Thomas Blossom is in fine fettle at present and the eight year old was recording a quickfire double when scoring at Hereford yesterday. Having just his fourth run over fences and off the same mark as when winning over hurdles last time, he jumped proficiently in mid-division and could be noted travelling well throughout.  Taking […]


Zoffany Bay makes it second time lucky

Runner-up on his hurdles debut at Exeter a fortnight ago, Zoffany Bay quickly made amends on his second outing over timber, running away with the 2m maiden hurdle at Plumpton this afternoon under Adam Wedge. A wide-margin winner on the flat at Brighton in August, he had schooled very well prior to that Exeter run and […]


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 […]
