Another Bath success for Storm

Storm Melody has proved a bargain purchase and he added another success at Bath to his tally, supplementing his win at the course in June with an impressive victory yesterday under Tom Marquand. Just a week after a luckless run at the same course, it was great to see him bounce back to winning ways, coming from off […]


Storm Melody scoots up at Bath

Storm Melody is proving a really fun horse for his owners Shaw Racing and he recorded his second win for us when bolting up at Bath yesterday under Silvestre De Sousa. Purchased for just £2,800 last summer, he produced his best performance for us yesterday on his first try back at an extended five furlongs since […]


Sir Canford wins on handicap debut!

Having shown ability in his three starts in maidens, Sir Canford took a big step forwards at Lingfield Park yesterday, winning on handicap debut under Charlie Bishop for the Select Racing Club. Stepping up beyond a mile for the first time, he still looked green through the race, and again when coming under pressure turning in, but […]


He’s Our Star makes winning reappearance

He’s Our Star is a real favourite in the yard and he recorded the third win of his career (as well as one when disqualified after passing the post first at Windsor last year!) with a game front-running success at Brighton yesterday under Tom Marquand. It was a well-judged ride from Tom, but He’s Our Star […]


Drewmain scores again at Chepstow

Drewmain Legend won over hurdles at Chepstow last April and, a year on, she got off the mark over fences at the second attempt with a last-gasp win on the same card. She travelled very well into the straight, but really had to respond to pressure from Andrew Tinkler up the home straight and still had […]


Ardmayle scores at Sandown

Ardmayle has been a tremendous performer for us over the past couple of seasons and the seven year old registered a career-best effort when scoring over fences at Sandown Park under Andrew Tinkler. Successful on his first two attempts over fences in 2017, we sent him back over hurdles last term and he won twice, but the […]


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 […]

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!
