Its nearing the time of year when we welcome future stars as we enter the foaling period. We have had some good foals with the few broodmares we have had; Miss Conway being the most prolific and now we are hopeful her full sister Miss Amelia will follow in her footsteps after achieving her first win last time out. Orkan is another of our homebreds out of a mare called Zefooha, and if you've seen h...

1st March 2019 Things have pretty much returned to normal with a sigh of relief now racing is back in full swing and it appears that the equine flu situation is under control. We had a very welcome winner two weeks ago courtesy of Miss Amelia owned by Cambridge People and John Craggs, all of whom have been very patient with her. She was bred by my parents and is full sister to Miss Conway who won...

It was very agonising watching at Doncaster on Friday as Miss Amelia was nailed on the line. She continues to try and lose her maiden tag and we finally got to see what she shows us at home, Daryl gave her a great ride and if she can settle a bit better she should be winning soon. Below is a picture of her (light blue colours) in front just before the line. It was great to get Half Bolly out ...

  We've been a bit quiet with racing recently, but hopefully we will have a few out on the all weather in the next few weeks. We hope to run one this week at Market Rasen called Event Of Sivola. He won a Chase in France on his last start and the handicapper has given him a mark of 117 over here. It's sometimes hard to assess French form and see how it translates, however his homework has bee...

3rd of January 2019 It's a new year and a new start for the flat horses some of whom have come back in this week, however we've had a handful in for the last month or two. These are either horses returning from some time off, new ones, or some simply needed a bit of time. They'll hopefully be making their returns to the track towards the end of this month on the all weather and today we took them...

28th December 2018 Christmas has passed us by and hopefully the horses haven't eaten as much as I did, the horses tend to get a day off on Christmas day but there is no rest for the wicked as the team were in at 6am and have done a great job over the holiday period. Will and I worked up an appetite by giving Another Day Done and Quest For Life a spin over the hurdles ahead of their runs the next ...

20th December 2018 With Christmas fast approaching I don't think we've ever been busier, with all the jumpers in full swing and the flat horses starting to trickle back in there's plenty in the yard to get excited about. My dad and I enjoy buying younger horses whether it be stores for jumping or yearlings for the flat, the small string of yearlings we have are coming along nicely. The Coach Hous...

13th November 2018   It's been a bit of a frustrating start to the jumps season as the ground is still too quick on most courses for us to have many runners. The few we have run have gone well though; Cornborough ran yet another great race to finish 2nd to an improving horse at Wetherby and Take a Break won at Carlisle making it 2 from 2 since he joined us, below is a picture of him on his ...

18th October 2018 It was great to get a couple of winners last week, the first was Carlovian who was trying 5 furlongs for the first time since he came to us. He had won 3 seven furlong races for us previously but since being fitted with a visor he has shown a lot more speed so we felt the drop to 5f was worth a go. I have to say after he missed the start I thought he had no chance but he fo...

1st October 2018 Its been a quite few weeks for us on the racecourse with not too many runners. Cornborough won well at Chester last month, he has been a great horse for us and has now won 7 races and just under £50,000 in prize money. He was a great purchase costing only £6000 as an unraced two year old. Below is a picture of him and some of the Cornborough Racing Club members in the...
