It was 12 months ago when Pensax Boy went to Wolverhampton to pick up the feature race on the card and he returned last night to do exactly the same again! A full field lined up & Pensax Boy had to carry top weight, giving away a lot of weight to the younger, unexposed 3 year olds – hence a nice price of 14-1. Liam Jones rode him for the first time, after riding him out on the gallops at … Read More
Seaforth was having just his third run for our yard and made it a winning one – on the 26th time of asking! Returning to Brighton where he had been a good second over 6 furlong a few weeks earlier, we stepped him up to 7 furlong today and he seemed to relish the extra trip. Kieran O’Neill rode him again and pushed him out for a cosy 4 length win. With Big Lachie finishing a good second in the … Read More
Onefootinfront returned to Wolverhampton 2 weeks after his last visit and noticed up another win, with Luke Morris taking over the steering this time. It was the closest of finishes, but Luke was typically strong in the saddle and managed to get him up by a nose. Onefootinfront looked very relaxed & pleased with himself after the race!
Racing Staff week, from 30th June to 7th July, gave us the opportunity to thank our team for all of their hard work & dedication. We took the opportunity to introduce our employee of the month awards, had breakfast rolls & ice-creams whilst at work & a lovely evening BBQ for all of the team, including a couple of our regular jockeys. Megan Wingrove & Abbey Rogerson were the two employees of the month – Megan for her continued commitment … Read More
It might have only been a normal Monday evening meeting at Wolverhampton for most racegoers last night, but for 2 Counties Racing it was a very memorable one as their horse – Onefootinfront – did exactly that and picked up his first race. For many of the syndicate members it is their first taste of racehorse ownership and therefore their first winner. For the team at home it was probably more of a relief to get a winner after loads … Read More
A great win for Big Lachie and all connections, to win the last at Bath racecourse under a well timed ride by Kieran O’Neill. It’s been a frustrating few weeks for the yard with loads of placed efforts, so fantastic for all the team to see him get his head in front. BIG LACHIE turned the form around with the second horse, who had beaten us at Ripon last time, but he stepped up a fair way on that form … Read More
We had runners at three locations on Saturday and were delighted to bring home a winner from both Haydock Park and Wolverhampton. Moxy Mares traveled up to Haydock for his first run as a three year old after a nice winter break and was ridden by Oisin Murphy. He didn’t mind the heavy going and traveled strongly throughout the race taking up the lead comfortably in the final furlong. A great win for owners Steve and Anita Mares. Tigerwolf was … Read More
Tigerwolf took the last race at Kempton Park in style – he settled well towards the rear of the field and made steady headway to take up the lead about a furlong out. He edged to the centre of the track but the win was never in doubt as he came over the line clear by 2 1/2 lengths. Eoin Walsh did the steering. It was his first win since joining our yard and for owners The Friday Morning Fourball. … Read More
After several occasions as the bridesmaid we were delighted to see Lord Murphy get his head in front again at Wolverhampton on Monday evening. This was the first win for the new owners – The Goodwooders – and most of the syndicate were there to cheer him home. It was great to see them enjoy their first winner and hope it will be the first of many!
Dark Alliance returned to Wolverhampton Racecourse this afternoon and notched up win number 4 of the year, taking the feature race on the card. Eddy Greatrex has built up a great rapport with the horse and gave him another lovely ride to go on for a comfortable win in the end. We are delighted for owners, Andy Holding Speed Figures syndicate, who have enjoyed a great few months with the horse. All credit goes to all of the team at … Read More
