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 winner's enclosure.
It was nice to see Carlovian bounce back to form with a fine 3rd at Redcar last week, he runs again at Newcastle on Wednesday where he bids to win his 4th race for his syndicate Profit Pony Racing.
We have had a couple of new arrivals recently, the lastest being Take a Break, myself and his new owners Ursa Major Racing saw he was entered in a seller last week at Worcester and he was just the type of horse we have been looking for. Luckily for us he got beaten by half a length so was available to claim for £5,000 which we thought was great value, we put in the claim by phone and recieved the news it had been succesful soon after. Luckily our close neighbour Mick Easterby had a runner at the meeting and he kindly bought him back to our yard. Below is a picture of him the day after we got him home. He looks a lovely horse and should be ready to race again very shortly.
Another new horse to arrive is a yearling colt by Music Master, my Dad went to Throckmorton Court stud in July and after looking at around 20 yearlings he told me I had to go down there as there was one he really liked the look of. When I visited a couple of weeks later, I was shown a field with 15 yearlings in and it just so happened that the one I loved straight away was the same as the one my Dad picked. Time will tell if we are both good or bad judges of a horse!! He is now broken in and cantering, we love everything he has done so far and looks like a real two year old type, we are currently looking for owners for him so get in touch if interested! Below are a couple of puctures of him.
The jumps season proper is only just round the corner now and we are looking forward to getting some of our national hunt team out at Wetherby's first meeting later this month.
