Thankfully Barton Gift is none the worse for slipping up on the home bend when in contention at Catterick on Thursday, disappointing for connections but he should gain compensation soon and shows he is in good heart at present.
Our two other runners at Catterick ran very pleasing races, Pearls Legend, ran his usual gutsy race and jumping well to finish second just getting collared close home. Incidentally he is FOR SALE to stay in the yard and having already won two hurdle races it is only a matter of time before he opens his account over fences, he would be an exciting purchase. Please do get in touch with John on 07801 552922 or 01905 371054 if you are interested in purchasing Pearls Legend, he is for sale as a whole or in shares.
Sweeping Rock our third runner of the day belied his odds of 125-1, by running a storming race to finish third (in a photo for second) on his first outing over hurdles in a very competitive race, he will surely be winning soon.
Due to more horses coming back into work we are currently looking to recruit new staff members, work riders and/or yard help, please get in touch if you are interested in joining us,07801 552922/01905 371054.

Happy New Year, from us all at the yard.
We are due to have our first runners of 2015 this Sunday on the all weather at Southwell, Eurato and Howz The Family and hope they both run well.
Next week we have three entries a Catterick, Barton Gift and Midnight Legend who both ran well last time, also entered is Sweeping Rock who will be having his first run over hurdles having previously won on the flat.
20th November 2014
Over The Air and Table Bluff have both won recently over hurdles and fences respectively. They are both now having a well deserved holiday.
Our other National Hunt horses including Barton Gift, Midnight Legend and Heavenstown all of whom enjoyed a successful campaign last season are soon to be in action. Midnight Legend had his first run of the season last week and finished an encouraging fourth and Barton Gift is due to make his seasonal reappearance at Exeter this Sunday.
We have several of the Flat horses ready to run on the all weather including Rock on Candy, With Hindsight and Hawk Moth. Both Ashpan Sam and Clear Spring our prolific winning sprinters who have done so well are now having a well earned break and will be back in training in the spring.

So far we’ve has a successful Flat season with a healthy strike rate. With Clear Spring and Ashpan Sam once again continuing their good form from last season. They are both due in action again shortly. Clear Spring is being aimed at The Portland handicap on St Leger day at Doncaster he may be joined by Aspan Sam if the going is soft.
Ashpan Sam is also being prepared for another tilt at The Ayr Gold Cup, he should make the cut this year having risen to a mark of 104 (he ran in The Bronze Cup last year) and he should hopefully get his wanted ground in Scotland!
Hawk Moth, a Kinnersley partnership horse (shares are available!) has had another successful season having won twice and been placed several times giving members some enjoyable days out. He will be running again soon.
If you are interested in joining a sydnicate please do get in touch with John or have a chat with him if you see him at the Races.
We have two more Flat horses who will be making their debuts in a couple of weeks, if they prove good enough they will be offered for sale or syndicated.
John is also looking to buy a National Hunt horse to join a syndicate, giving syndicate members the opportunity to enjoy a day’s racing all year round.
