The Tin Man Kicks off 2019

Posted on: 23rd May 2019

Our stable star THE TIN MAN kicked off his 2019 campaign in fine style on Monday evening in the Further Flight Stakes at Windsor where he finished a good third behind Dream Of Dreams. He has won this race twice before on his seasonal debut but had to concede a 7lb penalty on this occasion. He was briefly held in a pocket over a furlong out but a gap opened up and he powered home strongly. He will most certainly come on for the run and we are so excited to watch our Tin Man sparkle again this year.  


48 hours later, The Tin Man's lead horse and daily companion, ENVISAGING had an afternoon on the Norfolk coast at Yarmouth where he ran a lovely race in defeat to finish second. This horse really is worth his weight in gold, he does a tremendous job leading The Tin Man as well as being fairly talented in his own right. It would be so lovely for him to get his moment in the spot light this year, he truly deserves it and after this week's performance, it is far from outside the realms of possibility!
