Weekly News and Updates

This week has seen a very quiet week for the club, the hot weather and ground conditions are not favourable currently and while the horses are continuing with their training as usual we have unusually not had any races.

As you will no doubt have seen there have been a few trainers sadly lose horses these last few weeks so our trainers are keen to give them a nice break and enjoy the sun like the rest of us.

We will see what this week brings but currently we are again looking at a fairly quiet week from all camps.

The next club event will be our trip to see Archie and Richard Spencer, this event is happening on the morning of the 21st July, as a rough itinerary we are proposing the following:

8am: meet at the Gallops in Newmarket, here you are able to observe the spectacle of some of the UK’s best trainers and horses descend on Newmarket Heath. We will meet up here with trainer Richard Spencer who will be able to provide some history and point out facts and features of this iconic town. Archie will also be bought out and you will see him in full flow.

9am: back to the yard for tea and coffee and to have a look at the amazing facilities at Richards premises and Q&A time with him and staff.

10:30am: depart and head to Palace House and The National Horse Racing Museum, for those who can I would highly recommend coming along to the museum as the insight and history if provides is fascinating. (Members will be required to pay for their own admission but we are negotiating to see if we can obtain a group discount once we know final numbers)

From here people are free to see the sights of Newmarket or head off to the course to enjoy a day racing.

Can I ask anyone who wishes to attend to register on the events page so we know expected number of guests and the final details will be issued a week prior.

Horses Overview

Due to the quiet week and extremely hot weather all horses have been up and training early and then enjoying plenty of sunshine like the rest of us.

The only horse with anything to report upon this week is Zamalight. He has made the move to his new home with Brian Barr who has already identified a few items with the horse we can work on. Brian is pleased we didn’t move the horse on and that he has been given the opportunity to try with him and has mentioned he will not be too long before he has an entry for him.
