9th May 2014
With five runners on one day I feel a bit of pressure to have a winner, to come out with two was a great result. Tim was up at Hexham to saddle King of Strings who made it two wins from two at the track in within 7 days, heavy ground was slightly against him but a decent performance none the less.
I had just got to Thirsk races and stabled our four runners with L before finding a tv to watch KOS win, bit of pressure off… now on to Craggaknock. He won very easily pricking his ears neat the finish showing me there was a bit of petrol left in the tank.
Home Flyer who cost only £800 ran a blinder in the last as well finishing third on only his fourth start.
The Disappointment of the day was Woody Bay, couldn't quite work it out as his work has been great at home, back to the drawing board.
All in all a good day for the yard, horses in good form.
The Picture is of Craggaknock enjoying the sun the day after his win.
