Raising our Spirits

Posted on: 8th Jun 2015

Hopefully like her mother she will continue to improve.

Although the horses are not winning they are running very well and everyone is working hard to get us some winners.

We are forgetting PRESTO BOYS last run at Doncaster which was a disaster from start to finish. He had run a fairly reasonable race on his first run of the year and we all had hope for the future. He works very nicely at home so we are going to Salisbury hoping that all goes well with him. Tom Marquand is riding him as he was booked when he was supposed to run at Nottingham but was pulled out as they had had a fair bit of run and we felt the ground had gone against him. Poor Tom had hitched a lift on a horsebox for the one ride. He rode MISSED CALL for us beautifully at Goodwood when she was third only beaten a length and giving lumps of weight away to the two in front of her. HE'S MY BOY goes to Beverley for a 7f Handicap. He is quite quirky character but has ability but does like everything to go his way. He will like the faster ground and hopefully the course.

SPEEDY BOARDING may run in The Ballymacoll Stakes at Newbury on Thursday. She worked nicely under Freddy Tylicki on Wednesay on the Al Bahathri. Wednesday was our big work morning last week and we had some nice horses for the future working. Of the three year old colts and geldings DROMCUS, SMOOTH OPERATOR, ARTHENUS, HIGHER POWER, STAR STORM all look to be improving. SPEEDY BOARDING is looking a nice filly. The unraced GALLOPING ANGER & UP IN LIGHTS are coming along.
ALZEBARH looks as if she will be the first two year old runner. She has been doing faster work for about a month now. Of the colts KING OF NAPLES, BATTAILLES & COLUMN look the most forward.

There was not a lot of work on Saturday but it was good to see both HORS DE COMBAT and RIBBONS have easy pieces. ONE CHANCE & ELIZONA worked together and looked to be going nicely.

ALZEBARH went with the older horses ANGEL DELIGHT & FLY a unraced half sister to SEAL OF APPROVAL. She looks as if she will be our first two year old runner. The most forward of the colts are DUKE OF NAPLES, BATTAILLES & COLUMN.
