 Last week we had runners everyday of the Aintree Festival, all of the horses ran well and all came back in one piece.   On Thursday Millers Bank ran a blinder in the Betway Hurdel to finish 3rd at odds of 80-1.  He is turning into a fabulous horse and definitely looked like a true professional against hot competition.  He has had a great season and done his owners and the ya...

 What a huge thrill we had on Saturday when Bourbon Beauty took the EBF final at Newbury.  She had been feeling really well at home and looked magnificent in the paddock before the race.  We had hoped she may get a place but to come home in front was a dream.  Instructions to Harry Bannister, her usual jockey, was to jump off in front, you may end up in mid-division but she wil...

 Smooth Stepper, who is a yard favourite, stormed home to win easily up at Carlisle on Sunday.  He is 12 now and qualifies for the Veterans races.  Though they are for older horses they can be very hot contests and this was not any different.  He sat mid division for most of the race and then coming to the last took the lead and in the end won by a good margin.  It was nic...

 It was a busy but successful week last weeks with lots of runners which produced a couple of winners.   Omar Maretti made the trek up to Catterick and it turned out to be a successful one making it two in a row for him and Kielan.  It was a lucky win really as Harry Skelton looked to be going the better when upsides at the last, unfortunately he took a tumble and left Omar in fro...

 It has been a great couple of weeks, even though the weather has not really been playing ball!  Fagan made the short trip for us down to Newbury.  It was a horrible day, with constant rain and we did wonder if the meeting would go ahead.  The going was heavy and had a lot of horses toiling but not Fagan who seemed to relish the conditions and pulled a way from the last to be a...

 It was great to get back on the winners board with Millers Bank at Kempton on Saturday.  He'd had a couple of disappointing runs but bounced back to winning way under a reat ride by Harry Bannister.  Robbie, as he is known at home, still looked a little green and the more experience he has under his belt the better.  Great for his owner, Steve Bocking, who has been a great sup...

 Apologies for the delay in this report!!  After a disappointing first run at Lingfield, Get Your Own redeemed himself at Southwell under a very well timed ride by Harry Bannister.  He was back in trip for this run which seemed to be the key to the win.  He kicked on coming to the last hurdle and won easily in the end.  A great thrill for his owners, who were obviously dis...

 It has been a good week here at Trafford Bridge with the horses continuing to run well.     Jonjoela and Kankin ran really well at Market Rasen on Thursday to both finish second.  The weather was terrrible and the ground not ideal but Jonjoela led from the start and only got headed close to home.  She improved on her last run and is sure to give her owners lots of ...

 Wow, what a peformance from For Pleasure yesterday at Cheltenham.  He was one of the outsiders of the field but did not run like that.  He went straight to the front as he always and within a minute had a twenty length lead.  Harry Bannister did a great job getting him settled in front and he just kept galloping.  He came to the home turn and the Skelton horse was after h...

 It was a great week for Alex Hales Racing last week.  On the saturday we took four runners up to Market Rasen, Hiconic, Swilly Sunset, Say Nothing and Sun Rising Hill.  Hiconic was a very short priced favourite but got pushed back to second place by a very nice horse of Amy Murphy's.  She did nothing wrong and we will freshen her up and she will be out again soon.   Say...

 Just Marvin made it 8 for team Hales for the season as he won on his season debut up at Uttoxeter yesterday.  He was ridden by Conor Brace as it was a conditional jockeys race.  Marvin was settled at the back as he took a very keen hold, Conor did really well to keep him there as he was pulling like a tank!  He jumped really well and slowly made his way around the field after ...

 What a superstar For Pleasure is turning out to be.  After already winning two from the front he went to Stratford again on Saturday and did exactly the same thing again.  The tapes went up and he was off, Harry Bannister as previously giving him a superb ride and they went on to beat the course record.  So pleased for his Owners, Simon and Sam Mullaney, who are over the moon ...

 It has been a busy week with runners and all have been running well.   Last week we had Swilly Sunset and Love The Well up at Market Rasen in the same race.  Both horses had been off for a while due to Covid 19 but they both ran well with Love The Well finishing 3rd and Swilly finishing 4th.  They will definitely come on for the race and should be back out again soon. ...

 Yesterday we took Hiconic up to Bangor for her 2nd run over hurdles.  She was a hot favourite after winning so easily on her debut at Newton Abbot.  When you have a hot favourite it is always a worry and there were quite a few horses in the field who were having their first run over hurdles.  She did not disappoint and led from the start to finish for her second victory in the...

 After the long lockdown we are now back racing, although in a much different way.  With no Owners orignally allowed to go along and watch their horse, we are now allowed to take two owners per horse along.  We are slowly getting there and hopefully in the near future a more normal service will be resumed.   A few of the dual purpose horses had a spin on the flat as soon as w...

The 2019/20 season has been amazing for us with our most ever prizemoney won going over the 200K mark and our most winners with 20.  We were hoping for a flying finish to the season but unfortunately we have been halted in our tracks by the Coronavirus.  This has ended the season with no racing until the end of April which is the official end of the season anyway.   We had a great...

Well what a weekend it has been.  With storm Dennis sending the Country into Chaos we were wondering if any racing would go ahead but thank goodness it did.   We took Smooth Stepper, Fagan and Rough Night up to Haydock.  Rough Night ran well but did not seem to be quite himself, Fagan ran very well after coming back from a long lay off.  The star of the show Smooth Stepper wa...

After quite a quite January when we have not had many runners, Roy started February off with a bang.  He is now 12 years young but you would not have thought it the way he ran yesterday at Market Rasen.  He had his ears pricked and jumped for fun to win by 18 lengths under a superb ride by Kielan Woods.  So thrilled for everybody concerned, he is such a lovely horse and had been a f...

What an amazing week, we have three runners and all have won, bringing the winners to the season to 17 and we have gone over the 100k mark in prizemoney!!   Rough Night went to Warwick in his 2nd chase in the most horrible conditions due to all of the rain and made all to win by a really good margin.  He did really well as the track looked like a ploughed field.  Thrilled his owne...
