A great weekend was had by all!   Huntsman Son went down to Newbury in his first race since his wind op.  He has been in really good form but with some of the string not being 100% you can sometimes not tell how they are going to run until they get to the track.  He is a very tough horse and we could not have been more thrilled for the horse and his Owner, Mr Bill Booth, when he w...

 We had a great start to the New Year with Ceara Be fighting out up at Fakenham for a New Years Day winner.  Much deserved by her, she is very tough and always gives everything. The Drone was also 3rd which was another consistent run by him.   Rough Night went down to Fontwell and ran really well to be 3rd after his disappointing run last time.  He was leading coming around t...

 After a slightly frustrating time recently with horses running well but not winning, Rough Night finally got us off of the Cold Trainers list with an easy victory down at Lingfield.  It was his first run for  the yard and he really ploughed through the mud to come home in front.  Really pleased for his owner Tricia Morris and also for Kielan Woods who has been plagued by injur...

 It has been another very busy week at Trafford Bridge and we were very pleased to welcome another new recruit in Stacey Sue.  We purchased her from Goffs on Wednesday and she was definitely one of the stand out lots.  She has won two point to points and won a bumper last week at Worcester making the front cover of the Racing Post as she was ridden by Charlie Swan's son.   ...

 Last Sunday saw our annual Owners Open Day and thankfully the sun decided to shine!  It was a lovely day with around 170 guests and a parade of over 30 of the string.  There were many new faces this year which is great news and quite a few new horses.  We have in the last week had to put up more boxes to house the expanding string which is wonderful.   The horses contin...

 Another National Hunt winner for the season with Mister Fizz winning at Southwell races yesterday.  He was having his first run for us and put up a great performance under top weight on a scorching day.  So pleased for his owners Margaret Wilson and Bundle Pickard.  The horses continue to run well, we are just being held up by the lack of rain.  Even the horses who want q...

 It has been a busy weekend and successful weekend.   On Saturday we had an Open Morning for The Golden Horse Racing Club.  All of their horses were paraded in glorious sunshine including the broodmares, youngsters and foal.  All of the horse behaved very well and even 3 month old squeak who was a complete professional.  After seeing Dandilion on the gallops and the para...

 It has been a great week so far with Methag winning up at Doncaster for us on Saturday.  Completely unexpected as she has been slightly disappointing in here recent runs but she definitely did not disappoint in this run.  She sat near the back of the field for the majority of the race and when the important part came she swooped past the rest of the runners to win by 2 lengths.&nbs...

 It has been a very good week with Shazzamataz and The Drone both winning for us.  Shazzamataz won down at Kempton on Monday under a great ride by Kielan Woods.  She has run really well in her previous races but really stuck to her guns and went onto win well.  It was a great result for the Edging Ahead our racing club and hopefully she can carry on in the same form.   T...

 Both of our runners ran well yesterday.  Maggie's Legend was 4th and was hinderd by a very slow pace early on which then turned into a sprint which did not suit her way of running.  She has come out of the race fine and is improving with every run.   The Otmoor Poet was having his first run after a break and put up a great performance to be 3rd in a very hot contest at Chelm...

The season continues to be going well with the yard reaching it's most prizemoney ever won in a season since we have been training.  With two weeks still to go hopefully we can get a few more winners on the board and up the prizemoney a litttle.   The last two winners for us have both been greys with Florrie Knox winning up at Wetherby after being consistently placed in his previous ru...

The New Year have seen the horses keep up there form with Big Jim a runneraway winner at Warwick.  Great for his Owners who were all there to see him get in the winners enclosure again.  His last run before Warwick had seen him a little under par but he bounced back again in great style to win from the front.   Duel At Dawn also ran that day and was a great 2nd, he just met a very...

2018 has blown in here at Alex Hales Racing with bitterly cold winds and rain.  That said, nothing can dampen the mood in camp as the first half of the National Hunt season has brought us 7 winners with 14 horses being placed (lots of 2nds/nearly winners) and over £73 000 in prizemoney.  The horses have been running well and the quality in the yard is improving all of the time. &n...

Last week at 9 years old Isaac Bell was having his first run on the flat.  It was really a prep race before the season starts, the rest of the field were either 3 or 4 year old so we were not really expecting a huge amount.  Isaac had other ideas and after being perfectly settled in mid div by Luke Morris, as he got into the final furlong he put his head dow...

The morning of our Open Day was bright if a little breezy and it was a fingers crossed that we did not get any rain.  It was great to see so many owners for our annual gathering and many new faces.  After a wander around the yard to see the horses in the stables we paraded 30 horses, all very well behaved and looking well in themselves.  By this point we'd had a ...

 With nearly all of the horses back in after their summer break we are back to every stable having a head over the door.  We have lots of new faces this year with Topper Thornton, Florrie Knox and Tower Of Allen joining us at the beginning of the summer, all purchased for new syndicates.  More recently Harbour Watch, Tuscany Poppy and Shiroccodee arrived at Trafford Bridge all of wh...
