Fontwell 26th December
Twin Bud ran a good race in heavy going over a shorter trip than normal to be second to Queen’s Grove, a horse that has notched up four wins consecutively. Although tapped for toe on the back straight second circuit she ran on gamely up the hill to pass horses on the run in, that elusive win will surely come.
Plumpton Monday 17th December
Budsson ran a better race today, he is still green, but going the right way. Little
Roxy ran another solid race to be third to a nicely handicapped horse (Thunderstorm
Wincanton 6th December -
Another good day with Goring One overcoming less than favourable conditions to overhaul Plein Pouvoir on the run in. Andrew Thornton gave him a really sensible ride, saving all his efforts for the last two furlongs.
Plumpton Monday 3rd December
An enjoyable day at Plumpton, with Twin Bud running a creditable race to be 4th in fairly sticky ground. She survived a mistake at the hurdle at the top of the hill, and will surely find a race soon given suitable going. Little Roxy ran a very honest , game race to be 2nd, going a good gallop all the way to the line, she deserves to get her head in front again soon, she never stops trying.
Folkestone 20th November
Goring One ran a good race today to finish second. I was particularly pleased with this as he had incurred a slight muscle strain at Plumpton two weeks before, a lot of the credit must go to his physio!
Plumpton Monday 19th November
Sherrub ran a good race in good company, made a hash of the second last, not too far adrift to finish 5th, he will have one more run in a Novice or Beginners Chase and will then have a handicap mark.
Fontwell Sunday 18th Novenber
Budsson was rather disappointing at Fontwell today, he is a horse that would prefer good ground and this was rather sticky for him
Fontwell Friday 9th November
Buddson ran an improved race at Fontwell, he stayed on well at the end of the race,
running in well and passing a few horses -
Plumpton Monday 5th November
A day of mixed fortunes; Goring One stumbled badly on landing over the first fence and Andrew Thornton did well to stay on him, he was never jumping fluently or travelling well after that, so was pulled up on the second circuit. Hopefully all will be well with him and he will run again soon. Little Roxy ran a very good race after nearly a year off the track to be a good third, she will come on for this, and being so genuine I am sure she will return to the winner’s enclosure before long.
Plumpton Monday 22nd October
Twin Bud finished a close up 2nd today in the 3m 1½ f handicap hurdle . Anna said “ Twin Bud ran her most solid and consistent race today, should surely get her head in front soon”.
There was a massive improvement from Buddson, who will gain confidence from this race.
ARRIVING SOON…I have a 4 yr old by Saddler’s Hall out of Kam Slave (Kambalda) coming shortly. He is half brother to GORING TWO and will be FOR SALE. Please call me for more details if you are interested.
