Exciting Announcement

  

Like any sport and life in general there are ups and downs and horse racing is no exception. Last week was a tough one. We began with high hopes last Monday but it ended in tragedy with the loss of Timeforben and Noel’s Boy at Newton Abbot. Both were freak accidents with no one to blame, these things do happen, it was just particularly sad and very unusual for it to happen twice on the same day. Monday proved to be one of the hardest days I have ever had on the racecourse. My thoughts and sympathies are with their owners and my staff for whom it has been particularly difficult, especially Debbie and Bex who looked after them. These horses become members of our extended families and an empty stable the next day is one of the worst feelings in the world. The yard had a sombre feel to it the next day but we have some fond memories to cherish.  Read more...

There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon with a flat card from Hamilton and a jumps fixture from Plumpton.  There is good prize money on offer at Plumpton so they deserve a big pat on the back for their efforts - it is just a shame that they haven't been rewarded with a few more runners.  David saddles Percy Street to contest the 3m1f handicap hurdle at 4.15pm. There are only four runners so you pick up £800 even if you finish last.  It looks like a tight little handicap all the same and you could make a case for all of the runners.  Percy Street receives plenty of weight, is having his first run since a wind operation and looks well worth a try at this longer trip.  David Noonan is in the saddle.
