Some exciting new arrivals over the last few days after two visits to the sales.
Cheltenham firs, and a very buoyant market - as ever - for the pointers. we were delighted to secure the last lot of the day 'Achy Breaky Heart', a winner of two points - by Milan. A strong filly she will be running in a bumper before progressing back over hurdles.
Newmarket last Friday for the two year old breeze up sales. Very pleased with two purchases - the first for owner John Peacock - a big bay colt by Wootton Bassett who is stunning.
John is looking at him as a very long term project, and would be delighted to hear from anyone who might be interested in taking up a share in him. He really is stunning & we have high hopes for him.
The second purchase was a grey colt by Havana Gold - he is for sale. He has a decent page - breezed well and again should be a fun long term project.
Great to have some new faces over doors & lots of future plans to be made.
No runners in the new season so far, but two at Worcester today.
Anti Cool, runs in the first, he has a lot of ability, but has to have things just right on the day and if he repeats his Wincanton run should go close. Twycross Warrior runs in the last, we have always thought a lot of this horse, but he has never really had a clear run of things, but ran commendably last time so fingers crossed for more improvement.
we had our last Open Morning for a couple of months last Saturday & the next will be in August. Not much to see during June & July as most of the team having a summer break. If you would like to come & see us though we are always pleased to see you so just pick up the phone or email to arrange a visit.
Our regular Open Mornings have proved very popular (something to do with Terrys' cakes??) and we have raising getting on for £1000 for the Air Ambulance through donations made, which is very pleasing. A charity that should not have to be a charity & one we all may need at some point in our lives!
