Another Good Week
As we approach the end of January I am pleased to report that the horses remain in good order and continue to perform creditably on the racecourse. Another three runners last week bears testament to this and our seasonal tally now stands at 80. Indeed, my parents have just returned from their holidays and during their absence the Pond House team have enjoyed nine successes…perhaps I should ask them to go on holiday a little more often? I don’t think my mother would mind, although my father may have other ideas! Read more...

What a Moment....Winner at Towcester
What a judge Ashley Farrant is, he told me What a Moment was a really nice type of horse and was great to see him win the bumper at Towcester on his Pond House debut. Our five year old stayed on really nicely up the hill on pretty desperate ground and he looks a right stayer in the making. He has already finished second in a Irish point to point so he can jump and he is very much one to look forward to. Meanwhile at Wincanton our runners were a bit disappointing but it was atrocious conditions so fingers crossed we can put a line through these runs and we will see better from these horses next time. Horses tend to either handle conditions or not and unfortunately ours did not appear to yesterday. I did see the strangest race ever at Wincanton yesterday though, the bumper. A horse called See the World hungs so badly left of the last bend he went right off the track and gave about 100 yards away yet still got up to win. He must have been about a million to one in running! He is also well named, See the World, that is what he did yesterday! It was also great at Wincanton as an owner of ours, Geoff Thompson had a winner. Coombe Hill is 14 years young and ran as well as ever to win the hunterchase under Darren Edwards, well done Geoff!
