2017 flew past, our best season to date, with plenty of winners and placed horses to cheer home throughout the season. As always, at the start of each season we set ourselves goals to beat the previous or best year tally in regards to number of winners and also prize money. 2018 will be no different, as an ambitious team we always strive for more and we want to get better and better as each season passes.
Over the past eight seasons we have seen our yard strengthen and become a force to be reckoned with. Since our first Group 1, Royal Ascot winner in 2011 we have been handed some wonderful individuals to go to war with. We have been extremely lucky in the support of our owners over the years and new clients that have joined us. We have had some fun and unforgettable days on the racetracks, in the UK and around the world. It is always a thrill and a privilege to have a horse compete on the biggest stages at key meetings during the season; something we strive to have and unearth year after year.
For 2018 we have some firm favourites in the older department to look forward again, to name but a few; GOLDREAM, ENCORE D’OR, OUTBACK TRAVELLER, and SIR ROBERT CHEVAL. Pulling in to this group and out of the three-year-old division; STORM OVER, VISIONARY, ALWAYS AMAZING and EVERGATE are ones to mention and will be exciting horses to race. Plus these familiar names we have several new ones to race this season. These were purchased from the horses in training sales and should be types to race on a Saturday . . .
The Three-Year-Olds are a fascinating group on paper; they are lightly raced and will progress this season to find their feet in their racing careers ahead of them. Plenty to be excited about in this age group for 2018 . . .
A decent bunch of Two-Year-old have joined us from the yearling sales at the end of last year and also a handful of homebreds. All have been broken in and are enjoying life learning the ropes daily in their groups. Ultimately we aim to assist our owners and new clients joining us to purchase racy looking individuals to have fun with in their first season. This age class looks to be exactly that. As we start to push some fast buttons the early ones will start to emerge. We then have the spring Breeze- Up sales to enjoy sourcing precocious two-year-olds from. PRINCE OF LIR in 2016 was a prime example of the type that can be found!! Very exciting indeed!! . .
Plenty to follow from our stable for this 2018 season . . . Fingers crossed for lots of turns in the winners enclosure! . . .
