Making Racing better…

Weekly News 28th October

Weekly News and Updates 

It’s been a quiet time for the club with no runners this past week and none due to run within the next 7 days. This has largely been due to some needing softer ground whilst others have needed a little break after a busy spell. 

We are still seeking a new trainer for our Swiss Spirit and if anyone has any extra names for potential trainers to put forward please add your input in the forum.


Horses Overview

First up is Adrian Wintle who reports Rocket Ronnie to be in good shape after a short break to recharge his batteries following a few quick runs in succession during the last two months. “He has recovered very well after his last run and after an easy few weeks he went out and did a lovely piece of work yesterday,” (Saturday) said Adrian. 

As he needs goodish ground to be at his best his trainer is hoping the weather stays fine so he can be entered in another hurdle race over 2m to 2m3f in the next 2 weeks. However if the rains return then an entry will be made for him on the flat over 10 furlongs on the AW. 

We will update as soon as an entry is made for him. 

Hard to Forget has come out of his race well after a nice introduction in his debut over hurdles at Uttoxeter ten days ago. Henry Oliver said “we were happy with his run on ground as quick as he would have liked. He jumped well and shaped nicely and will progress further.” 

Henry will be looking for another hurdle race for him when the ground eases and believes he will be one for handicaps in the future. 

Over at Brian Barr’s yard where eight of the Inspire horses are trained we caught up with the latest news on the team.

Archie who has recently switched from Richard Spencer’s yard has settled in nicely into a routine where he will be assessed before making any plans for him

Inspire stalwart Toolatetodelegate is in good order and will race as soon as a suitable race is found. 

Haats Off loves her work and will be ready to go again within the next ten days. Fingers crossed for some soft ground for her soon.

Call sign Charlie is due to be clipped this week and as she is not the easiest mare she will need heavy sedation. This will also mean due to racing regulations and the use of drugs she will be unable to run for 10 days. However she needs some rain to race again. 

Robin de Broome is still having an easy time which I’m sure he is enjoying as he’s had such a busy summer.

Our ptp horse Clondaw Whisper is nearing his debut for the club which is really exciting. He’s fit and done loads of work including an away day on Friday where he schooled on grass. 

There was also news of the two yearlings, firstly the Swiss Spirit x Annie Kenney ‘Nora’ fillyis in light exercise after being broken in and a decision will be made soon as to where she will go to continue her training, or else stay with our number 1 trainer!

And the Style Vendome x Little Shambles ‘Ginger’ filly is also doing well. She isn’t the biggest but carries lots of condition which is good to work on. She is a bit strong minded but in racing that can be a good thing!

Machiato is continuing to do well under Ian Williams and a stable visit to see him is planned soon. 

Prairie Light and Foal are doing well. The foal still hasn’t got a name so please keep ideas coming!
