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
Chocolate Box made his first start for the yard a winning one! We took him back to Chelmsford, where he was a previous course winner, and stepped him up to 2 miles. Luke Morris was back on board and although he pulled a bit hard in the early stages, he finished really strongly and won by over 3 lengths. It was a great win for new owners, Racing Facades, and hopefully an exciting horse for the future! Great result for … Read More
Big Amigo had his first start on polytrack today and made it a winning one! He traveled down to Lingfield Park to try the surface for the first time & it was also his first attempt at the mile, after several close finishes over the 7f at Southwell this winter. Eoin Walsh was back on board, after winning on him twice in 2017 & gave him a lovely patient ride to produce him inside the final furlong. Great to see … Read More
Dark Alliance was unlucky not to make it three in a row last time out, but got no luck in running and had to settle for third. He made amends last night in Wolverhampton though and ridden by Edward Greatrex again, he went on to win by a comfortable length in the end. The owners – Andy Holdings Speed Figures Syndicate – have been very patient to get this horse back to full health and thankfully it has paid off. … Read More
Big Lachie won the Betway sprint handicap up at Newcastle on Friday evening, continuing the good form of the yard. Andrew Mullen rode him for the first time and settled him in midfield before taking it up in the final furlong & going on to win by a length. We were delighted to have our first winner for owners Archie & Jen Tait and Jim and Garry Fernand.
Earlier in the week we traveled Chestnut Fire and Deeleys Double to Chantilly to run on the all-weather track over there. Eoin Walsh went over to ride both horses. We were going over with a 100% win strike rate in France, after winning a race with Burnside on the same card last year. Chestnut Fire lined up in the first race and traveled strongly into the race, taking it up about a furlong out and went on to win by … Read More
