We only have a small team of horses for the all-weather this winter and half of them ran this week with varying degrees of success. Sea Shack is ultra consistent but finds winning hard and he again filled the placings at Southwell on Friday with another third place to his name. It is frustrating that he can't win but it isn't for lack of trying and eventually everything will fall into place for him.
Limerick Lord also ran at Southwell that day but was only there in spirit as he never ran a race and didn't put much effort in. He is getting a bit old and wise now so maybe we need to change the headgear he wears and also try him at another track.
Highway Robbery's run is best forgiven as he was drawn wide and could never get into a decent position.
After all the action last week, we just have one to run in the coming days as Miss Green Dream goes to Wolverhampton on Monday evening for the N.E.T. Racing Club. I'm desperate to get a win into her as she is so well bred and will make a lovely broodmare for someone. This doesn't look an easy race but it's her last chance as she will be heading to the sales afterwards where she goes through the ring at Tattersalls on Thursday evening. I will only sell her at the right price though so she may be coming back home.
The yearlings continue to go about their work with great attitudes and are cantering along very nicely. The most forward of the lot seems to be the Outstrip colt and we still have some shares left in him if you want to be a part of his syndicate. He hasn't even got a proper name yet and all his owners will have a say on what he is called as well as all the usual perks of ownership when he goes to the races. He looks like he will be an early two-year old so get involved if you want to be a part of his exciting journey. Find out more here.
We could get some of the horses into the new stables we have been building as the roof is all finished and I'm delighted with how they look. They are big stables with loads of light and fresh air so should provide a lovely environment for the horses. Things aren't fully finished yet as there is no lighting, there's a bit of painting and tidying to do plus the yard needs surfacing but at least we can get a few of the horses in from the field and out of the bad weather.
