 After a frustrating few weeks with the horses not being 100% right in themselves, we were thrilled to have two winners in the last 5 days.  Last Wednesday Looking As You Are, in only her 2nd start over hurdles won nicely at Ludlow under a great ride by Harry Bannister.  Looking slightly green still over some of the hurdles, she toughed it out to win nicely in the end.  Such a ...

 Kankin made a superb start over fences winning on his seasonal debut at Huntingdon.  A great start for his new owners The 25 Club who purchased him at the end of last season.  A very slick round of jumping with Kielan on board and hopefully lots more fun to come this season.  So good that so many of the club could be there to welcome him home and pick up the trophy.

 No Risk With Lou was having his first run of the season under the guidance of Kielan and Wow, he did not disappoint!  Leading from start to finish, the pair went off like rockets and kept the gallop up right until the end, winning by at least 8 lenghts.  A very slick performance for his first time over fences and hopefully giving us a taste of what we can look forward to for the re...

 We were very pleased to host our annual Owners Open Day on the 9th September.  It was a glorious day, with nearly 200 guests, it was lovely to see so many people.  The horses all behaved themselves as they were paraded in the new all weather arean and then it was into the marquee for a scrummy lunch and a glass of wine.  It is always a great day and gives us a chance to catch ...

 So thrilled for EZ Tiger who finally got his head in front at Southwell yesterday.  He has recently been very close but had yet to get to that number one spot, which he did in great style yesterday under a fabulous ride by Bryan Carver.  Really chuffed for his owner, Neil Rodway, who unfortuanately could not be there but was watching from home.  Neil has been a great supporter...

 For the second time in a matter of three days the girls battled to the winning line.  After Hiconic's win two day previous, Pollypockett was not going to let the side down battling to take the win at Market Rasen.  Another fantastic ride by Harry Bannister, he rode her closer to the pace paying dividends and getting that win.  It was also lovely to see the colours of the late ...

 It was great to see Hiconic back to form again yesterday.  After a horrible injury a couple of years ago and a season that didn't quite flow last year it was great to see her back in form.  She was a good winner at Warwick last month and made it two in a row under Harry Bannister yesterday at Worcester under Harry Bannister.  She is a tough mare and has served her owners, Gold...

 It has been a busy week at Trafford Bridge with the horses starting to get back on track.   On Sunday Grasse D'Oliverier ran up at Market Rasen.  We were hoping that she would improve from her 5th place last time out and she didn't disappoint.  She sat handy throughout the majority of the race and took it up coming into the home straight to win easily under a great ride by J...

 Sunday was a busy day for former Alex Hales Racing horses.  Maybell and Bourbon Beauty, both of whom had been in training with us, gave birth to filly foals.   Bourbon Beauty had a lovely foal by Planteur early in the morning and Maybell gave birth to another filly, the sire being frontiersman.  The foals were quickly up on their feet as were their exhausted mothers.  T...

It was great to have a winner yesterday up at Doncaster with Boldmere for his owner John Odell.  Boldmere came with us from Caroline Bailey after she retired and had some time off with an injury.  After one prep race he was spot on yesterday and won very easily under a great ride by Bryan Carver.  Thrilled for his Owner whose patience has paid off.   Fagan also put up a great...

 We rounded last week off with another winner, No Risk With Lou won easily at Southwell races under a great ride by Bryan Carver.  We bought Lou in the summer from Goffs sales and subsequently syndicated him to a new group of owners who called themselves The Risk and Reward Racing Syndicate.  It was a great front running performance by Lou and we could have been happier.   ...

 It was great to have a couple of winners in the last 10 days.  Our Bills Aunt made a great seasonal reappearance to win nicely as Chepstow last week. Thrilled for The 25 Club as it was our first winner for them.  Another first was Happy & Fine for Tim Acott and Winwood Construction, who are new to racehorse ownership and great they could be up at Market Rasen to see him win. &...

 It was great for Jack Thunder to win at Stratford yesterday under a super ride by Harry Bannister.  Having his first run over fences, he has previously been a little disappointing but not yesterday.  He tracked the leaders throughout the race, when going upsides the winner around the homebend.  He took the lead, nearly got headed but fought on well to be the eventual winner.&n...
