100 Up!

It was another good week for the stable with four more winners taking us through the magical century mark for the season. At the start of each campaign I always set myself a clear and challenging goal – 100 winners, £1 million in prize money and a Cheltenham Festival winner. If I satisfy all of those objectives I consider it to be a very successful season. To some a Cheltenham winner is not the be-all and end-all, although it is the very pinnacle of our sport – the Olympics of racing if you like, and so I would be surprised if any of my counterparts did not aspire to winning at the Festival.  Read more...

Today we have a jumps card from Carlisle as well as two all-weather flat meetings from Southwell and Chelmsford.  The stable has no runners today, although stable jockey Tom Scudamore travels up to Carlisle for three rides - he looks to have a couple of decent chances too.  The big news that broke yesterday was that of another impending retirement, this time of champion flat jockey Richard Hughes.  Hughsie, who has won the flat championship for the past three years will retire at the end of the coming flat season and will take up training in 2016.  He may be 42 but he is riding as well as ever and is probably the most stylish jockey riding today - he said you can't go on forever as a jockey, but you can as a trainer.
